Judd Apatow talks about directing LeBron James in Trainwreck

Wednesday June 24th, 2015

LeBron James's summer may not have started off the way he would have liked it to with the Cavaliers falling in the NBA Finals to the Warriors, but he still has some things to look forward to, like the release of Trainwreck, a comedy in which he plays LeBron James.

The movie's director, Judd Apatow, was on Conan on Tuesday and talked about what it is like to work with James, and the thrill of being able to boss around an athlete that dominant.

Apatow also brought along a clip of him and LeBron interacting on set, with Apatow asking the superstar player to make his voice a little higher so that it registers better with audiences, leading to a hilarious exchange.
