Blake Griffin is set to make his Hollywood debut
There is too much action going on in Blake Griffin's life. Just weeks ago, he was a very big star of the LA Clippers and was facing a wide array of injury problems. Then, he got traded to Detroit Pistons. Now, he is having a great outing at Detroit with three wins in a row. He even finished with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists in his first match.
But we are not here to talk about the crazy draft analysis which people have been making for the last few days. We are here to talk about his latest big achievement off the basketball court.
Blake Griffin is about to make his Hollywood debut in the movie "The Female Brain", releasing on 9th February. The cast of the movie includes people like Sofía Vergara, Cecily Strong, Whitney Cummings, Jane Seymour, Toby Kebbell and Ben Platt.
This is not the first time he has made headlines off the court. He has featured in TV ads for such brands as Kia, Foot Locker, and Jordan. He has also played small cameos on TV in years prior.
The trailer for the movie looks amazing, especially those scenes with Blake. Looking at the trailer, we can clearly say that he was given a good amount of screen time and his acting skills also look natural. The rest, however, is up to you guys to decide. If Griffin is able to pull this off, there will be a lot of comparison of his acting skills with Lebron James', who stared in the movie "Trainwreck" in 2015.
Have a look at the trailer below.
In the second video, below, Cecily Strong talks about both the movie and Blake Griffin. According to her, Griffin is amazing and plays a funny role in the movie. Watch it after the 4:39 mark.
