PLAYERS: Jennie Garth

From Larry Brown Sports:

From promoting rap albums to doing weather reports on Canadian TV, Metta World Peace is always broadening his sports horizons. Now it looks like he’ll be venturing into a completely new realm — movies.

TV Guide reports that the wacky Lakers forward has scored a role in a movie adaptation of Nancy Grace’s first novel, “The Eleventh Victim,” which is set to premiere in the fall on Lifetime Movie Network.

World Peace will play a Georgia detective who works alongside Atlanta’s District Attorney (played by former “Beverly Hills, 90210″ star Jennie Garth), as she pursues the conviction of a serial killer.

If you’re wondering how World Peace scored the role, it’s apparently thanks to a friendship that developed between him and Grace when the two were contestants on Season 13 of "Dancing With the Stars" (though Grace never wore her hair as crazy as World Peace did). In fact, it seems like the whole thing is a Dancing With the Stars connection; Garth was also a former contestant on the show.

You might question if World Peace has any acting chops, but as this video showed us, the guy can be pretty funny on camera. We think he’ll do great and, at the least, he should give Lifetime a boost in male viewers.
