“Survivor’s Remorse” has an fitting guest star for its Oct. 17 episode: LeBron James.
This will be the first time James has appeared on the Starz series based loosely on his life.
In a teaser clip released Friday, fans can see main character Reggie Vaughn, played by RonReaco Lee, meeting James and Red Sox chairman Tom Werner before a high-roller card game. After being told that he is the best basketball player in the world, James says he’s “going to use that.”
James and Werner are exec producers of the series along with Maverick Carter, Paul Wachter, Victor Levin, Hilton Smith and creator Mike O’Malley. This is James’ first acting role since appearing in Amy Schumer’s summer hit, “Trainwreck.”
“Survivor’s Remorse” airs at 9:30 p.m. Saturdays on Starz.
