    Default LeBron James to make feature acting debut

    LeBron James Heating Up for His Acting DebutFri., Feb. 18, 2011 1:10 PM PST by Natalie Finn and Ashley Fultz

    LeBron James is a rock star on the basketball court, but will he have any game on the big screen?

    The Miami Heat forward is planning to make his feature acting debut playing—we hope he doesn't get too lost in his character—a superstar NBA player in Ballers, about a group of guys who attend adult basketball camp. James has been collaborating on the project for some time now with Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer.

    So, Grazer is still up for it even after James' ESPN-abetted PR fiasco?

    Can Blake Griffin dunk?

    Rumors that the plug was pulled on the film after James overdramatized his move from Cleveland to Miami are untrue, and E! News has exclusively learned that he and Grazer are now moving full-steam ahead on the project.

    The duo, who were spotted with their heads together last night at Siren Studios during a preview party for James' new animated web series The LeBrons, are hoping to see a final script soon. A rep for Grazer says they're hoping to start shooting this summer.

    James is actually no stranger to the big screen (or the MTV Video Music Awards, or the cover of Vogue, or Kardashian dating rumors...), having appeared in the 2009 documentary about his rise to fame, More Than a Game.

    A rep for James has not yet returned a call for comment. It is All-Star Weekend, after all.

    When I saw the title it reminded me of this game I saw earlier this year:

    If I'm remembering the general plot of the movie right, I hate to admit it but I'll at least Redbox it. It seemed perfectly suited to Lebron, and he seems like he could pull it off.

    What should Lebron do?

    Should he "decide" to pursue a Hollywood acting career that rivals, or perhaps even exceeds the greats Michael "Space Jam" Jordan and Shaq Fu, or should he simply stick to making as many commercials as he can while he is still relevant?

    What should he do?

    We've already seen Lebron's acting debut. He's in character every time he gives an interview that's being filmed.
