Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony can add “actors” on their resume, which might come in handy as the NBA lockout continues.
Both guest starred in last night’s episode of Law & Order: SVU, playing — what else? Basketball players. They weren’t actually playing though. They appeared in the opening scene and in the end, with Anthony having the majority of the lines.
The two are in the middle of presenting an award to an high school basketball coach when a man interrupts the ceremony. He’s accusing the coach of sexual assault.
While this is Anthony’s first time as an actor (we think …), Bosh once appeared on Entourage, playing himself at a bar asking for a drink.
Here’s Bosh talking about his experience on the show, including the awareness that needs to be brought with regards to the episode’s topic:
Bosh also tweeted that it took five hours to shoot two minutes of the opening scene.
Meanwhile, also last night, Dwayne Wade was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon promoting his Court Grip product and take part in a 3-point shooting contest with Fallon. In true weird Fallon fashion, the two were trying to get random objects through the hoop.
