LeBron James & Method Man Join Judd Apatow’s TRAINWRECK


NBA star LeBron James and Wu-Tang Clan rapper/actor Method Man officially joined the large cast of Judd Apatow’s new comedy Trainwreck.

Both stars have signed on for unspecified roles as the plot has yet to be revealed. Amy Schumer, who stars alongside Bill Hader and Tilda Swinton, also wrote the script.

A cast also includes Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena and Mike Birbiglia, in a project, set up at Universal.

Trainwreck is set for a July 24, 2015 release.

Apatow’s upcoming comedy marks Universal’s third James-related venture: He is attached to star alongside Kevin Hart in a comedy  Ballers, and the studio recently acquired the rights to a feature based on his high school years in Akron, Ohio.

A four-time NBA most valuable player is also executive-producing “Survivor’s Remorse,” a half-hour scripted series for Starz about a basketball star navigating the limelight after inking a multimillion-dollar contract.
