When LeBron James gets tired of making everyone look silly on the basketball court, he may have a second career as a comedic actor. Judd Apatow, director of the upcoming comedy Trainwreck, claims Mr. James has got some serious skills.
The Hollywood Reporter talked with the director about LeBron’s guest starring role in the film. Here is what he had to say…
“We tested the movie, and he gets laughter as big as anyone. LeBron is a very strong actor, and he has a fantastic sense of humor. We do a lot of improvisation, and he was really good at it. As a result, it’s a really fun, wild, slightly strange performance that really scores.”
And that’s saying something because the hilarious Bill Hader and Amy Schumer star in the movie. As mentioned above, Judd Apatow is the director behind this film, and it’s interesting he decided to take on this monster. Typically, Apatow only directs films he helped write. This movie only has one person receiving credit for the script, and that person is Amy Schumer.
Universal Pictures just released the first trailer for the film, which is scheduled to be released July 17, 2015. The premise of Trainwreck is similar to several romantic comedies out there, except the gender roles seem to be reversed in this movie. In most romantic comedies, it’s the sex-crazed man falling in love with that special girl who makes him change his douchebag ways.
In Trainwreck, Amy Schumer shows that girls can be just as afraid of commitment. Check out the trailer down below. We’ll definitely be checking this one out.
