You’ve already read a little about Machetes Robert Rodriguez‘s short film for Nike called The Black Mamba starring Kobe Bryant, Danny Trejo, Bruce Willis, and Kanye West. Now, you can see it for yourself!

I watched the whole thing, and other than an insatiable desire to buy Nike sneakers, I think it’s a pretty cool little movie. Kobe Bryant is pretty funny in his scenes with Robert Rodriguez and he does a good job pretending to be a basketball player. My one complaint would be that Kanye West is far too babyfaced to play a super-villain. Look at him, he’s adorable! (via io9)

Many of the greatest movie actors began as basketball stars. That’s why they study Space Jam and the filmography of Shaquille O’Neal in every film history class. So you can imagine how excited the acting community is to have Kobe Bryant slam dunk onto the big screen. Or maybe it’ll be more of a layup. Or a missed free throw attempt. Whatever it is, it’s happening.

Bryant will star in a short film by director Robert Rodriguez, which will screen at select theaters ahead of PG-13 and R-Rated movies. This is not the first time the Laker star has expressed his inner Bryant. He played a basketball player on “Moesha” and tackled the equally challenging role of himself on “All That.” To up the acting credibility of the cast, SAG Lifetime Achievement Award winner Kanye West joins as a character known as “The Boss.” Here’s a plot description:

“[It's] basically a pitch session between Kobe and director Robert Rodriguez for a collaborative project that’s seemingly an action movie.”

Mr. Bryant, I hope you are ready for your second career adequately portraying basketball players in movies, when you are not playing actual basketball. (Hollywood Reporter)
