Last summer LeBron James had a large role in the hit comedy Trainwreck, in which he played himself and served in the best friend role for male lead Bill Hader. While James did a wonderful job in the movie, it was still just make believe and he and Hader continued on their separate paths after filming was complete.

This is apparently hard for some people to understand, and Hader told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday it has led to barrages of text messages about the NBA, which the actor says he does not follow.

Being confused for James’s best friend is a lot better than being confused for 70-year-old horror author Stephen King though.
