LeBron James(notes) is going Hollywood!

Oh, sit down, Laker fans. He's not joining your stacked championship team. Not yet, at least.

No, the Cavaliers star is set to make his acting debut in a comedy film about, well, basketball — playing himself, according to Daily Variety and every other site on the Internet. (Note: LeBron's pretty good at playing LeBron. He really brings himself to life.)

The plot of the movie, titled "Fantasy Basketball Camp," sees five guys — a wolf pack, if you will — travel to Las Vegas to participate in an adult basketball camp run by LeBron. After some dribbling drills, the guys convince the reigning MVP to attend their bachelor party, where LeBron gets drunk, marries a stripper, dunks on a tiger in the bathroom— wait, I'm confusing movies. Sorry. A tiger dunks on LeBron, Nike shows up, tapes are confiscated, blah, blah, blah. It's your typical whodunit and will begin production next summer.

No word yet on who his co-stars will be, but big shot producer Brian Grazer, who came up with the concept after meetings with James, is convinced the All-Star forward can make the transition to the big screen. And how can you blame him, what with LeBron's impressive run of straight-to-DVD smash hits?

Oh, you didn't know LeBron was already the Dan Heller of our generation? Yeah, I checked his IMdB page — he's starred in a lot of movies. Most of them were pretty big in Europe, too. (So are those glasses.)

Take a look.
