According to CBS, the big man will make a guest appearance on an episode of the crime drama "CSI: Miami" set to air on Nov. 16.
That's right, a seven-foot Spaniard acting on American television. "That sounds like *puts on sunglasses* a tall order. YEEEAAAHHHH!!!"
(Above joke credit to With Leather. I haven't been able to stop laughing since reading it. Cheers, Punte.)
"It was a very attractive opportunity. I play Victor, a normal person who is involved in a car accident and police are suspicious that I am responsible for what happened. I have good, meaty dialogue with an officer," Gasol told daily newspaper El Pais.
"CSI: Miami" stars David Caruso, Emily Procter and sunglasses. It's apparently pretty popular.
This isn't the first time Gasol has made it onto a CBS show. Last year, he was on an episode of "Numb3rs" with Lakers teammate Jordan Farmar(notes). And trust me, the show highlights are incredible. He plays basketball just like a real basketball player! Look out Daniel Day-Lewis!
