    Default Dwight Howard working on a movie

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/06212009...vie_175272.htm

    June 21, 2009 --

    ORLANDO Magic star Dwight Howard is working with "The Ring" executive producer Michele Weisler on a movie titled "Switch," about a "white, unathletic, unpopular high-school freshman who swaps basketball skills with Howard." Chris Tucker, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg are expected to make appearances in the flick, which starts shooting in August. Our source also said Howard's in talks to get Shaquille O'Neal on board.

    Maybe he should talk to Shaq first before venturing into movies.

    "swaps basketball skills?" in other words, he's going to grow a foot or two?

    Eh, Kobe has his move, LeBron's got his, I suppose Dwight's just chasing the stardom.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I will be fascinated to see this movie just because of this - what the hell are Dwight Howard's basketball skills and how will a lanky high school freshman use them? It's not like he has a killer J or some unstoppable post move.

    does the kid become suddenly unable to shoot free throws as well?

    Well Dwight is an athletic freak with his jumping ability, so I guess thats what the kid is going to get.

    Yeah, I'd guess it'll be the athleticism.

    I'd also guess that the movie is going to suck.

    I guess that T-Mobile commercial with Wade and Chuck wasn't good enough for him.

    If he does make the movie then I guess I'll watch it just to say I did.

    He just needs attention. After making the Finals he called VitaminWater to demand that he get his own commercial since they had been having the Kobe/LBJ debate commercials. So they had him do very bad impersonations of people praising Dwight Howard....I could do without him.

    It sounds like Space Jam, but without the Looney Tunes.

    Yeah he wants to take over LeBron's fame in the East so it's just him vs Kobe.

    How do you know whether or not the Looney Tunes will be involved?
    That'll do.

    Howard's rep refutes report that says he will begin shooting a movie this summer

    Dwight Howard has expressed an interest in becoming a movie star, but it appears the New York Post jumped the gun with a report this weekend that said the Magic big man was set to begin shooting a film in August.

    Both the Orlando Magic and Howard's agent called the report "premature." The New York Post reported Saturday that Howard would start filming "Switch" about a white, unathletic high school kid who switches hoops skills with Howard. The report also said Chris Tucker, Snoop Dogg and Kanye West would be in the movie.

    Mary Ford, who works with Howard's agent, said Howard is in talks with different studios about the movie, but nothing has been determined, including filming dates and potential co-stars. She called most of the information in the report "inaccurate."

    Ah, see. Nothing has been determined, including co-stars. There's still hope for Bugs Bunny n' pals.

    But seriously, if this is made it'll be absoulutely terrible.
    That'll do.
