It’s no Space Jam, but that’s probably a good thing. The recently announced LeBron James-starring baksketball comedy Ballers has found its costar in Kevin Hart. The decision seems to be a logical one, bringing a comedian to star in a comedy.
However, upon first reading the story in Deadline, I read the name as “Kevin James,” and what’s most troubling is that I didn’t even bat an eye. Kevin James could play Osama Bin Laden‘s more menacing brother in a Zero Dark Thirty sequel and I would just nod politely and get on with my life.
Remarkably, Kevin Hart is only 5’3″, which makes his proposed genetic sharing with LeBron all the more unlikely, which means this film will be much, much better than if he was like 6’0″ or something.
