I was thinking about sports movies,and wondered what the best permormance by a professional athlete might have been. Often they can be god aweful, as athletes are not known for their sensative emotional side, or their comic timing. Here are some that came to mind, not necissarily good permormances, just starring turns by sports stars. Michael Jordan -space Jam: not my favorate. stilted and fairly flat, he might as well have been selling razors, or batteries, or underwear or......... wilt chamberlin -conan the destroyer: he was alright in the role, but definately nothing special. He did have a unique physical presence. hulk hogan - rocky 3: pretty damn entertaining. Wrestlers in general make decent actors as its a basic part of what they do anyway. They are charismatic, funny and athletically gifted. from andre the giant in princess bride, triple H in X-men, to anything the Rock is in nowadays. They are pretty effective. These are all strong efforts. bubba smith -police academy movies: ok, but not that special. Mostly just physically imposing, but with a gentle soul. Im sure Im forgetting many memorable ones -good or bad. Any suggestions?
