Metta World Peace must've been bitten by the acting bug while on Dancing With The Stars.
The movie is based on a book by TV political analyst Nancy Grace.
Nancy and World Peace were on DWTS together.
About him being cast, she said:
"I wanted to cast someone for whom I have a true fondness. Metta World Peace was my first pick."
We can't wait for the movie to come out so we can get a look at his acting chops!
