”Space Jam 2?” A whole new ”House Party” franchise?

With the leadership of LeBron James Mike White Color Rush Jersey , anything is possible.


As James comes from Cleveland to Los Angeles looking to take the Lakers to more championships with a blockbuster $154 million contract announced this week, he could also push those two 1990s properties closer to reality and go from part-time presence to major player in Hollywood.


James hasn’t yet spoken about his plans for Los Angeles. But if he wants to, he’s already shown he can act, and not just in that good-for-an-athlete way.


His one real film role, playing himself in the 2015 Amy Schumer film ”Trainwreck,” directed by Judd Apatow, won big raves.


The Associated Press’ Lindsey Bahr called him ”a comedic revelation.” Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post said he showed ”expert, deadpan timing.”


James’ co-stars agreed.


”He was really good. Like everything with him it was very effortless,” said Bill Hader, who played the movie’s male lead with James as his sidekick and previously acted with James when he hosted ”Saturday Night Live.” ”He’s always listening. I know actors that don’t listen http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-tarvarius-moore-jersey , they’re just waiting to say their line. He listened.”


Hader said there was frequent improvisation on ”Trainwreck,” and LeBron easily kept up with the sketch comedy pros like Hader.


”You’ll never believe this, but he was super confident,” Hader told the AP with a laugh by phone from the Toronto set of the film ”It 2.”


”But not cocky,” Hader added.


”I remember Chris Rock was on set and rattled off a line suggestion really fast for LeBron, and LeBron said it back during the scene verbatim,” Hader said. ”I remember thinking, ”I can’t do that.”


He wouldn’t be the first Laker to try acting. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal had their share of famous, and infamous roles. And Kobe Bryant ended up with an unlikely Academy Award for an animated short based on a poem he wrote about basketball.


Whether or not he appears on screen, James has already begun a major media career that can only get a boost from LA.


Gone are the days when athletes had to be in a major market to make it in film and television Authentic Lamar Jackson Jersey , as James himself has shown through his years building his brand in Cleveland.


But there’s nothing like face-time for becoming a force in Hollywood.


James and his business partner Maverick Carter have a production company, SpringHill Entertainment, that has a deal with Warner Bros. and office space on the legendary movie company’s lot, where he could become a regular.


”Certainly the proximity will make it easier for LeBron personally to be part of future projects,” said David Schwab, an executive vice president at Octagon, a global sports and entertainment marketing and management firm. ”The advantage of a market like New York, Los Angeles and Golden State is the ability to have coffee, lunch or dinner daily” with key decision makers. ”In a smaller market you don’t get those consistent opportunities,” he said.


Schwab said James’ partners at Warner Bros. and elsewhere are most likely ”excited that he’s in Los Angeles as they could possibly use LeBron personally to close business deals with future partners of their own.”


James http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-p.j.-hall-jersey , via SpringHill and his digital film company Uninterrupted has already brought some projects to big and small screens, with many more in the works. Here are some highlights:


– ”Space Jam 2.” The idea of James reviving the 1996 movie starring another candidate for greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan, has been in circulation for several years. The movie with Jordan battling animated aliens alongside Bugs Bunny and his Warner Bros. cartoon buddies brought mixed reviews and eyerolls at the time, but has become a cult classic. Justin Lin of the ”Fast & Furious” films has been attached as director.


– ”House Party.” Stephen Glover and Jamal Olori of ”Atlanta” are writing a script that James and SpringHill hope will revive the franchise that starred Kid n’ Play and spawned three big-screen sequels from 1990 to 1994.


– ”Smallfoot.” James will have another chance to show off his comic chops as the voice of a skeptical yeti in Warner Bros’ animated film.


– ”Now We’re Talking.” A digital comedy series on Uninterrupted that features two rival professional football quarterbacks who become broadcasters and frequent pro athlete cameos is about to enter its second season.


– SpringHill is also producing several more television projects including the game shows ”The Wall” and ”Do or Dare” and ”Rise Up,” a documentary about the civil rights movement for the History Channel.



The Kansas City Chiefs are trading Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams for what is expected to be a package of draft picks, according to published reports.


ESPN.com first reported the trade, which will not become official until the start of the new league year on March 14. It’s the second major trade involving the Chiefs that will occur that day following the deal that will send quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins.


The Chiefs have been aggressively seeking to trade Peters, an All-Pro during the 2016 season, as part of both a youth movement and shift in locker room culture.


The 25-year-old Peters emerged as one of the NFL’s best cover cornerbacks Cecil Cooper Milwaukee Brewers Jersey , picking off at least five passes each of his first season in the league. But he also carries significant character concerns, beginning with getting thrown off his college team at Washington after a run-in with his coaches.


Peters has drawn the ire of some fans for refusing to stand for the national anthem, even though he has never explained why he is protesting. He’s been involved in shouting matches with assistant coaches on the sideline, bizarre and sometimes divisive locker room antics, and was even suspended for a game last season after tossing an officials’ penalty flag into the stands.


Peters thought he was ejected after that incident against the New York Jets and left the field, only to run back out – not wearing socks – when he realized he was not disqualified.


None of those character concerns was evidently enough to dissuade the Rams from making a deal, though. They were desperate for a shutdown cornerback for defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, especially with Trumaine Johnson due to hit free agency after spending two seasons playing on the franchise tag.


The Rams’ slot cornerback, Nickell Robey-Coleman, also is expected to hit free agency Adam Boqvist Blackhawks Jersey , and No. 2 cornerback Kayvon Webster will be trying to return from a ruptured Achilles tendon sustained in December.


Peters will count $1.74 million toward the salary cap this season, the final year of his rookie deal, and the Rams will have until May 3 to decide whether to pick up his fifth-year option.


The Chiefs will obtain a potential replacement for Peters when the Smith deal becomes official. As part of their pending trade with the Redskins, the Chiefs will receive coveted cornerback Kendall Fuller, who many believe is on the verge of stardom, along with a third-round draft pick.


Prior to the trades, the Chiefs were only scheduled to have four picks in the upcoming draft, which would have significantly hampered new general manager Brett Veach’s chances of upgrading the roster.


They were granted a sixth-round compensatory pick Friday for allowing quarterback Nick Foles to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason, and are expected to get additional choices from the Rams. But it’s unknown whether those will occur in April’s draft or in following years.


The Rams are already without a second-round after their trade for Sammy Watkins last year.
