Ray Allen should return to acting, says Leonardo DiCaprio

An actor's face if I ever saw one. - Mike Ehrmann

Some opinions may vary.

I will admit any recommendation concerning acting from Leonardo DiCaprio carries much more weight than whatever I say. But I'm not sure what DiCaprio was thinking by telling Ray Allen he should pick up acting again. Now normally I wouldn't question Leonardo DiCaprio, but has he even seen Ray Allen act?

It's been a year or two since I last saw He Got Game, but I remember everyone being better than Ray Allen at acting. His Foamposites were on point, though.

I'm sure Ray certainly has some fond memories about his acting career from a certain scene in a bed on a college recruiting trip, though.

But you know what? I've been waiting for an NBA player to try acting again in earnest. I just hope if Ray does it, he works with Jean Claude Van Damme like famous NBA player-turned-actor Dennis Rodman did.
