After conquering the NBA, it seems only fitting that Miami Heat star LeBron James would be ready to conquer the world of movies and thanks to the rumor mill, LBJ might be coming to a theater near you.
LeBron has been tabbed to have a role in the Kevin Hart film entitled “Ballers” and the fine folks over at Deadline have more on the role that Mr. James will play:
Kevin Hart is signing on to star with LeBron James in Ballers,the basketball comedy for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. Brian Grazer and Michael Rosenberg are producing.
Hart will first co-write the comedy along with his scripting teammates Joey Wells, Chris Spencer and Harry Ratchford. He’ll then star as a man who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami.
In case you want to know the size difference between LBJ and Kevin Hart, LeBron is almost 6’8 and Kevin stands at 5’3.
