The new Hollywood star, Metta World Peace to appear as detective in yet another movie
It appears as if Metta World Peace would have another job after his retirement from NBA. Metta World Peace seems to have embraced Hollywood gladly.
The notorious sports star Metta World Peace can add his name to a long list of NBA players that joined the Hollywood during or after their sports career.
The list includes players like Patrick Ewing, Shawn Bradley, Julius Erving, Gheorge Muresan, Ray Allen, Dennis Rodman, Michael Jordan, Metta World Peace, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and of course Shaquille O’Neal.
To be honest some of these players did a terrible job in the Hollywood. Hollywood would have been much better without them. For instance, there was no reason for Shawn Bradley to be included in ‘Space Jam’.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar also enters the list of worst actors in the NBA. He has successfully proved that being tall doesn’t necessarily make you funny in spite of a good script.
Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Jordan and Dennis Rodman are probably the biggest names on the list of NBA players that have made it to the Hollywood. Their performances have received much appreciation although critics have successfully been able to point out some reasons for disappointment.
Anyway, Metta World Peace could establish himself as a strong character in Hollywood – well, at least that’s what analysts are saying.
If there is one thing Ron Arte-ummm I mean Metta World Peace has proved from his performance in ‘Dancing with the Stars’ it’s that the NBA player, whose job is to show impressive footwork on the court, is utterly abysmal when it comes to dancing.
Nonetheless, Metta World Peace also proved that he can be a good entertainer.
It appears that Metta World Peace is serious about diversifying his career because he will be appearing in yet another movie. This fall Metta World Peace will be found in a Lifetime Movie Network flick which is based on Nancy Grace’s renowned novel ‘The Eleventh Victim’. Metta World Peace will be taking up the role of a detective.
Metta World Peace will play Garlan Fincher who is a Georgia detective. Garlan Fincher works closely with Atlanta Assistant District Attorney Hailey Dean and she is being played by Beverly Hills, 90210 vet Jennie Garth.
Apparently, Metta World Peace and Jennie Garth became friends on Season 13 of Dancing with the Stars.
Finch Garlan’s character “is very dear to my heart,” said Nancy Grace. “I wanted to cast someone for whom I have a true fondness. Metta World Peace was my first pick.”
