Recently-retired NBA legend Kobe Bryant has been using some of his newly-found free time to bone up on his acting skills, in TV ads and daytime talk shows.

The Black Mamba is now set to make an appearance in the “Ghostbusters” movie reboot hitting theaters next month.

Check out the behind-the-scenes flicks of Kobe prepping for the role:

If you thought Kobe Bryant was going to take time off after dropping 60 in his final NBA game — or that he would just fade into retirement — think again. Kobe is wasting no time in taking on new projects and making moves off the court.

 

His next move? Ghostbuster.

 

To see Kobe’s debut as a Ghostbuster, tune in to Game 1 of the NBA Finals tonight on ABC at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.
