Is Dwyane Wade planning on a move from the court to the big screen?
Not exactly, but he did tell photographers in West Hollywood that he’s ready to break into the movie business alongside wife Gabrielle Union.
When asked if he had any plans of joining the business, Wade replied with a cryptic statement that seemed half-serious, half-cheeky: “I’m trying to get [a movie], but she won’t put me on.”
While Wade’s comment that his wife was keeping him from the silver screen makes it seem like he’s just trolling, he did seem pretty genuine in his follow-up answer. “I’m trying to do a love movie,” he said, “like something romantic.”
Naturally, the first potential comparison was the basketball-themed drama Love & Basketball, to which Wade had a pretty firm response.
“No, not Love & Basketball,” he said.
We hope he’s joking.
