9. Gheorghe Muresan in “My Giant”
Nowadays, Billy Crystal is mainly known for hosting the Oscars but during the ’80s and ’90s, he was one of the top comedy actors in the business. Pairing the diminutive Crystal with the towering Gheorghe Muresan does sound like a funny concept but unfortunately like his career in the NBA, Mursean seems awkward throughout the movie.
8. Dirk Nowitzki in “Like Mike”
There are a number of cameos by NBA players in “Like Mike” but Dirk Nowitzki’s is the best. Yes, the movie is extremely corny but how could you not laugh at this scene:
“Hey, Calvin! Listen man, could I get your autograph?”
“It’s actually for my niece.”
“What’s her name?”
“Uh, it’s, uh….Dirk.”
