LeBron James says he would like to play Batman someday

Friday May 22nd, 2015

LeBron James appears to have a fairly sizable role in the Amy Schumer-Judd Apatow summer comedy Trainwreck and has mentioned an interest in acting before, so TNT's Rachel Nichols asked him about any future plans he may have.

James said that he has long wanted to appear in movies and on television, dating to his childhood, and even joked about playing one of Hollywood's biggest roles: Batman.

“I always talked about it as a kid, and even as an adult. I was like, ‘Wow, you know, I always wanted to be the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And then when I got older, the Bad Boys movies, I was like, ‘I would love to do an action movie.’ Either be, like, a cop or something, or be, like, Batman. Hopefully I can do some more things. Maybe, we’ll see.”

If LeBron gets to play Batman, then the producers definitely have to cast Joakim Noah as The Joker, right?

Also, who wouldn't watch a Fresh Prince reboot starring LeBron?
