Looks like Giannis Antetokoumpo is not all about that Hollywood life.
In an interview with ESPN’s Malika Andrews, the Greek Freak explained that he was asked to be in Space Jam 2 this summer, although it simply isn’t for him.
“I don’t like being Hollywood,” Antetokounmpo said. “I don’t like all this extra drama. I am just going to try to be me.”
He even said at the All-Star game that he’d rather stay in a calm city like Milwaukee then go play in Los Angeles.
Being in the film would have required him to give up two weeks of private workouts to train with his fellow stars while making the movie, a total non-starter, given Antetokounmpo’s reclusive tendencies.
that James “hasn’t been able to close some of those deals” to bring recognizable NBA names onto the “Space Jam 2” cast.
If this is MJ instead of LeBron, no one is turning down a role, and the line for people to sign up would be around the corner.
