Top 10 Worst Acting Performances by Athletes

RealClearSports.com put together a top 10 ranking of the worst acting performances by athletes:

2. Shaquille O’Neal
Shaquille O’Neal has a great personality, is well-liked and in general, is a pretty funny guy (plus, hey, he Twitters). But, for all his good qualities, he struggles in the entertainment industry. He is not a great rapper, and he’s an even worse actor. He was good in Blue Chips, but his role called for him to essentially just play basketball. He was not so good in Steel, where he played a military scientist, or in Kazaam, when he was…wait for it… a rapping Genie.

10. Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman loved attention during his days as an All-Star forward for the Pistons, Spurs, and Bulls, so it was only natural for him to try his hand at acting. Unfortunately for him (but awesome for those who love to mock), he was better at grabbing rebounds than making movies. Notable failures include his role in Double Team, with Jean-Claude Van Damme, and the rather atrocious Simon Sez (Fun Fact: Rodman’s co-star is none other than everyone’s favorite overrated comedian, Dane Cook).

How does Rodman’s movie not making it higher than 10? I never saw it, but just judging by the trailer Simon Sez looks like it could be one of the greatest movies of all-time…
