Carmelo Anthony to Appear on ‘Nurse Jackie’

Carmelo Anthony has scored another TV gig — he appeared on “Law and Order: SVU” back in September — and you catch him on Showtime‘s “Nurse Jackie” this Sunday night. Per the NY Daily News: “Fans of Knicks star Carmelo Anthony will get a chance to see the All-Star do double duty on Sunday. After Anthony and the Knicks continue to try and lock up a playoff spot Sunday with a Garden matinee against the Miami Heat, fans can watch Carmelo the actor Sunday night. Anthony will make a guest appearance on Showtime’s hit dark comedy ‘Nurse Jackie’ playing a fallen pro hoops player. In the episode, scheduled to air Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, Anthony plays one of an eclectic group of patients who participate in a group therapy session with the show’s title character (played by Edie Falco) at a Manhattan rehab facility. Falco plays an emergency room nurse at a Big Apple hospital with a weakness for prescription drugs in the Showtime series which is currently in its fourth season.”

    I thought he was starring in “Don’t Trust the B that Plays in NYC”.


    Typical NY distraction for knicks star players.
    That might make them richer but not better basketball players.
    Can all this extra PR and marketing assignments occurring in NY, might be one of the reasons why they are only 8 seed in the East ?

    A dark comedy is a perfect fit right now for any Knick player.

    The show is airing Sunday…he is not recording his part Sunday. Trust me, Melo is not worried about that show. He’s concerned with beating the Heat.
