Re: Athletes who tried to become enterainers
My youngest son loved "Space Jam" in which Michael Jordan played Michael Jordan.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was in "Airplane."
I'd guess that the greatest athlete who ever made a go of being an entertainer was Bugs Bunny. He was a terrific baseball player; who can forget Bugs beating the Gashouse Gorillas all by himself?
"Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
