Carmelo Anthony Chris Bosh SVU: Bored NBA Stars Turn To Acting During Lockout
Is Hollywood taking over the careers of Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh?
No, not really, but that’s about the only way the duo can make money as the NBA lockout continues to drag on with no apparent end in sight.
The duo is scheduled to appear in an episode of Law & Order: SVU, which will air at the end of September. Here is the description of what we can expect of two former teammates in the 2008 Olympics that are now crime stoppers:
The episode, called "Personal Fouls," airs Wednesday, September 28, and also features Mehcad Brooks ("True Blood") as a basketball superstar who was once a prodigy of a youth basketball coach played by Lauria. Rapper/actor Heavy D plays his cousin and business manager.
Anthony and Bosh will appear in the opening scene and episode climax, and will hopefully play a key role in proving that this is all a huge misunderstanding because Mr. Arnold would never, ever do anything like that.
Sounds like ‘Melo and Bosh are the unsung heroes of this episode. Can they convince the cops Arnold is innocent?
Both players have already caught the acting bug in the past. Bosh played himself on Entourage and repeatedly kept asking for vodka for his girlfriend. Certainly not Academy Award winning material, but at least he got his feet wet.
‘Melo is set to appear in an episode of the legendary kids show Sesame Street later this fall. The rumor that he teaches kids not to share things like a basketball has yet to be confirmed or denied.
Clearly both players are getting bored as they see the writing on the wall. A lockout could potentially wipeout the entire season. While players like Delonte West apply for a gig at Home Depot, ‘Melo and Bosh are using their star power to rope in work that pays over minimum wage.
Maybe the lockout will unintentionally unveil two great police detectives. Who needs basketball?
