LeBron James will be taking his talents to Hollywood. The Miami Heat star is set to appear in Judd Apatow's next movie.

Apatow announced via Twitter and Facebook video that LeBron is joining the cast of "Trainwreck," which is written by and starring Amy Schumer.



According to Apatow's Facebook video, the film will also star Bill Hader, Method Man, and Tilda Swinton. "This may be the only time this group of people acts together," Apatow says. "Maybe it'll happen one more time. So hurry up with that thing you're doing [the NBA playoffs], we have work to do."

LeBron in an Apatow joint. Wow. Intellectually I understand that he will probably be playing a basketball player, but I enjoy the thought that he will go full Rogen for this and play a slacker whocould lead the Miami Heat to a championship if he could just get off the couch and quit smoking weed with his buddies. In this case, apparently, his stoner buddies will be played by Method Man and Tilda Swinton, which I am 100% fine with.
