Athletes have short careers so many of them look for other ways to make money. Hollywood can be a popular destination for many major stars because there are often opportunities for lucrative acting roles. But very few stars have careers like The Rock made for himself after his days as a football player and professional wrestler were over. Many of them have roles that make them look ridiculous.
So today we’ll look at some of the worst movies and roles that sports stars appeared in. There are some horrible ones that very few remember anymore and for good reason. Check out these garbage acting roles right here because they’re hilariously awful.
Michael Jordan – Space Jam
Space Jam is one of the most iconic movies on this list but that doesn’t mean that it was great. However, movies don’t always have to be four hours long to be entertaining. This was also during the height of Michael Jordan’s fame in the ’90s when everything he touched turned to gold.
However, there’s no pretending that his performance was anything groundbreaking. Jordan was wooden and uninspiring as he played himself saving the world alongside the Looney Tunes cast. It made him look ridiculous but it could also be argued that’s what’s so endearing about this classic kid’s movie (via GQ).
