Michael Carter-Williams to Play Lead Role in Upcoming Live-Action Disney Film

Basketball isn’t the only dream for Chicago Bulls guard, Michael Carter-Williams.  During an interview on Thursday, Carter-Williams stated that he wants to pursue a career in Hollywood.

“I’ve had a lot of time on the bench to think about this, I mean, I think my talents are being wasted here in the NBA.  I’ve talked to my agent and think it’s time for a career change.”

Disney has reached out to the Bulls guard in hopes of casting him in their new live-action remake of “A Goofy Movie.” Talent reps at Disney have stated that Carter-Williams has wonderful on-screen potential.  When asked about Carter-Williams resemblance to the lead character, Max Goof, the talent rep responded.

“You know, I don’t really see the liking, but hey, with the amazing post-production technology and exquisite make-up, I think we can him a star.”

It has been rumored that Pauly Shore will rejoin the cast as Robert “Bobby” Zimmeruski and Gabriel Iglesias will play the role of Pete Junior.  We caught up with Carter-Williams again on the bench.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.  I grew up watching these movies and I think my experience courtside will translate to the film industry.”

The Bulls organization sent out a short memo stating they didn’t know Carter-Williams was even still on the team, but wished him the best of luck.
