Gary Oldman Video: Watch Actor's Hilarious Plea with NBA Players on Jimmy Kimmel
Gary Oldman is stepping up for a great cause. Some may even say the best cause. The famed actor can't stand the sight of NBA players acting in movies, and he comes armed with f-bombs.
Oldman was on Jimmy Kimmel Live to deliver a hilarious rant on NBA players thinking they can step seamlessly into the realm of acting.
The actor, who plays commissioner Gordon in The Dark Knight Rises, has thoughts on athletes who try to act: He doesn't like it.
He steps onto a court like any other PSA, and then delivers kind words of wisdom to the audience. Only, they get ramped up to a fever pitch when he can't stand the thought of NBA players acting any longer.
I have to agree with Oldman, as most professional basketball players give their roles in movies the same gusto they do their postgame interviews.
In fact, you need to watch Blue Chips with the subtitles on just to hear what the hell Shaquille O'Neal is saying.
If you need proof, Dime Magazine once did a top-10 list of NBA players in movies, and a good amount of them will have you chuckling to think they are considered top-10 anything.
Ray Allen as Jesus Shuttlesworth is, of course, excused. I mean, Dennis Rodman in Double Team is top-seven.
I am guessing Oldman wouldn't have any issue with the upcoming Chinese blockbuster entitled Amazing. The NBA stars are free to act horribly, as long as they're overseas.
