Metta World Peace is Now a TV Actor


The artist formerly known as Ron Artest announced via Twitter that he had a role in last night’s episode of “Reed Between the Lines” — don’t worry: I’ve never heard of this show either — with promises for more acting gigs. From the LA Times: “The NBA at least temporarily hurts its product to fans, while they can’t get their pro basketball fix. But there’s one tiny silver lining: Metta World Peace will continue to appear in the headlines for reasons that have nothing to do with basketball. The latest: The player formerly known as Ron Artest announced on Twitter he will appear in his first acting gig at 7 p.m. Tuesday in BET’s ‘Reed Between the Lines.’ Artest couldn’t be immediately reached for comment, and his publicist didn’t have immediate details on what his role will entail. But here’s one morsel of news that will give Laker fans something to do during this long offseason. Tweeted Artest…err..World Peace: ‘More tv and movies coming!!!!’”

    This is the shows first season. Guess I’m the only occasional B.E.T. watcher? Theo is taking on the role of Bill Cosby now. Metta was ok, he basically played himself.

    I caught some of the first episode. I thought the main characters overacted and the little girl was annoying so yeah… that show is gonna get canceled.

    You’ve never heard of the show because you don’t watch BET. He played a good role in the show, though.

    Headline should read: “Metta World Peace has finally gone totally off his rocker.”
