He shoots; he scores! Following in the footsteps of Michael "Space Jam" Jordan, Los Angeles Lakers star Metta World Peace (formerly Ron Artest) is soaring from the court to the screen. Peace will make his acting debut in a movie adaptation of Nancy Grace's first novel, The Eleventh Victim, set to premiere in the fall on Lifetime Movie Network.

Peace will set down his basketball to play Garlan Fincher, a Georgia detective who works very closely with Atlanta Assistant District Attorney Hailey Dean, played by Beverly Hills, 90210 vet Jennie Garth.
How, you may ask, did this highly unusual bit of casting come about? Turns out World Peace and Grace became fast friends during their stint on Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars. (Garth is also a Dancing alum.) The Garlan character "is very dear to my heart," says Grace, who authored The New York Times best-selling novel based on her real-life experiences and serves as one of the film's executive producers. "I wanted to cast someone for whom I have a true fondness. Metta World Peace was my first pick."

The Eleventh Victim follows Garth's character as she pursues the conviction of serial killer Clinton Burrell Cruise. The case becomes personal for Hailey when she is physically attacked by Cruise in open court. While still recovering, Hailey moves to New York and begins a new career as a therapist. When her clients start to turn up dead - with the murderer using the same M.O. as the Atlanta killer she put behind bars - she is forced to help catch a cold-blooded killer who could very well make her his next target.

Yikes! Sounds almost as scary as dancing in front of judges Len, Bruno and Carrie Ann.

I do not care what he does. He better be in shaped and ready when training camp arrives (unless he is amnestied). Also, this guy should work on his shot during his free time.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.
