Metta World Peace is probably one of the most interesting players in the NBA. Some people find him weird but I find him to be truly fascinating. Not many people would think to thank their shrink on national television, but World Peace has done that. If you want to add to his awesome story, he is now starring in a movie written by Nancy Grace. Yes, that Nancy Grace.
“I met Nancy Grace on the set of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and … she really liked the way that I was acting on the show, which is acting kind of silly. But I’m a pretty decent actor and she just picked me for the part. I was like, ‘Wow.’ There was no way I was turning it down.
If this leads to Metta becoming a leading actor, I would not be upset about it. The dude may be a bit out there but there is nothing wrong with that. Every league needs a guy who is not afraid to go against the grain. MWP is certainly one of those guys. He might be against the norm but it makes things a lot more fun for the consumers.
Believe it or not, I might end up watching this movie when it comes out. Call it a morbid curiosity if you will. It could end up being a disaster but I would not mind seeing him act serious for once. It would certainly be something that we are not used to seeing.
