Kevin Hart Is Making a Basketball Comedy with LeBron James

Kevin Hart is set to write and star in Ballers, a comedy in which the diminutive standup will play LeBron James's brother – alongside LeBron. Hart will play "a man who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets a chance to prove himself when he and some pals attend a weekend fantasy basketball camp in Miami."

At this point, LeBron's only acting experience has come in commercials and in ESPN specials, so it'll be interesting to see what he brings to a full-length movie. It's something he's wanted to do for a long time, since being the best basketball player on the planet has apparently gotten a little boring. One thing's for sure, there will be a lot of jokes about how short Hart is (5'3") compared to LeBron (6'8").
