There’s a reason why ESPN starts with an E, despite it being dedicated to the S.
It’s because, in the end, all athletes are entertainers. Even the boring ones.
I’m looking at you, Tim Duncan.
While many athletes are solely focused on their game, there are a select few who take the role of entertainer to a new level. They decide to hit Hollywood for their turns on the silver screen.
Some get starring roles like Michael Jordan. Some get sidekick placement, a la Dennis Rodman.
Then, there are the cameos.
These are athletes who aren’t huge players in the story, but their presence makes any sports fan laugh. It’s hilarious to see your favorite athlete completely out of place.
Unless you are with the missus, and she keeps asking you what’s so funny.
But who are these athletes who made memorable splashes in theaters?
