Kyrie has never shied away from his acting chops over the years. At 26 years old he’s created an alter-ego character, starred as the character in a series of commercials and brought him to the big screen in his movie Uncle Drew. Now he’s adding to his IMDB page with a new movie.
“The Players Tribune and Sanjay Sharma will executive produce along with Irving…‘Having had my own interesting experiences at the Skirvin Hotel, I connected with this idea immediately,’ said Irving.” – Dave McNary, Variety
He’s in a producing role says a lot about Kyrie. I don’t always agree with his leadership decisions especially in the media, but he sure as hell is a guy you trust. And I know I’m looking deeper into it than an English teacher analyzing The Grapes of Wrath, but I like that he’s so self motivated in everything he does. That’s a guy that succeeds more often than not.
Now I, of course, saw Kyrie’s movie Uncle Drew in theaters and I’ll tell you what, not bad. It obviously wasn’t going to win any awards but it was a fun movie. Everything you could hope for and expect from a young NBA player.
I don’t really know exactly what role as an actor Kyrie will play in this new movie based on a real alleged haunted house in OKC that opposing players stay at. What I do know is Kyrie is going to make a brinks truck full of money in his lifetime if he’s doing all of this on and off the court at such a young age. You don’t have this much talent, spend enough time with LeBron and not make a stupid amount of money over time.
