09:13 AM ET 11.20 | Amare Stoudemire might rack up more SAG credits than basketball stats this season, thanks to his burgeoning television career and the lingering NBA lockout. After guest appearances on "Law & Order: SVU," "Entourage" and "Sesame Street" this year, the Knick will appear on TV Land's "The Exes" opposite Kristen Johnston in a January episode. He plays an NBA star who dates Johnston, and we're told the two end up kissing on screen.

Then that will be as much action as he sees.

Has a lot of time on his hands. Maybe he can work as a waiter in Turtle's new restaurant.

He's had plenty of practice acting flopping on the court. He could be a star.

QUOTE(#12):

That's how a lot of sports stars start out, bro. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Shaq, Jordan, and various others all started by playing themselves before Hollywood or Broadway trusted them to act in other roles.

Think kareem in airplane, or OJ in the naked gun as well. I see no reason why amare can't do films, although he may not quite be famous enough like shaq/mj to be seen playing himself to casual fans or non fans. He should try his luck at something like saturday night live to test the waters and move on from there.

Time to shut down the NBA T&R section. Don't need/care to find out which NBAer is on the next Dancing with the Stars or Amazing Race or CSI.
