King of all media? LeBron James joins cast of new Judd Apatow movie

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Apatow makes the surprise announcement through social media.

Miami Heat superstar, MVP, NBA Champion and now movie star?

After recently signing with Hollywood talent agency William Morris Endeavor last month, it appears that LeBron James has landed his biggest acting role to date.

The King will be joining a star studded cast including Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, and Method Man for the film "Trainwreck" from director and producer Judd Apatow and actress Amy Schumer, who also wrote the movie.


James has recently been attached to a movie project titled "Ballers" along with Kevin Hart. He has also produced several projects, including an animated series "The LeBrons" on the web.

What do you think of LeBron's latest power move? He definitely has star power and charisma to spare, but it will take some serious comedic chops to be able to match up with the veteran actors he'll be sharing the screen with.

Hot Hot Hoops will be passing along more details on the film as we get it. Stay tuned!
