BSO: So you play a basketball player in one of the short-films in Movie 43, How did they approach you to be in the movie?
Brewer: “Relatively sports agency, the agency did the casting for the movie and asked if I’d like to be in it.”
BSO: Have you done any acting before this or was this your first time?
Brewer: “First time, to be on set with Terrance Howard and see him, I was like wow! I’ve seen him in Hustle and Flow and other movies, so it was cool.”
BSO: How was it working with Terrance Howard?
Brewer: “I learned a lot from him, just the way he moves. He was hilarious. ”
BSO: How was it on set, how would you describe your experience?
Brewer: “You can’t really laugh, everything is funny and you’re trying not to laugh on camera, but it’s hard. I had a great time filming.”
BSO: You’ve won 2 National Championships, what’s more nerve racking Championship games or acting?
Brewer: “I was more nervous stepping on set and seeing Terrance Howard. I always played basketball, I had won a title before, so I wasn’t really nervous.”
BSO: This was a comedic skit in “Movie 43″, who would you say is the funniest teammate you’ve had in your career?
Brewer: “Man, I’ve been on a few teams… I don’t know there’s a lot of funny guys.” “Jo (Joakim Noah) is definetly one of the funniest, his antics are what make him funny.”
BSO: Is acting something you look forward to pursuing after your NBA career is done?
Brewer: “This was my first movie, but I would definitely look into movies after I’m done.”
BSO: How do you find time to act and pursue other endeavors outside of basketball?
Brewer: “ It’s tough, mostly have to do it in the summer. There’s no way to do these type of things in-season. ”
BSO: The NBA schedule requires a lot of traveling; have you set aside time to watch the movie with your family or teammates?
Brewer: “I’m trying to plan something for me and the guys (Nuggets teammates) to see it when it comes out, I’m working on it.”
Brewer is joined in the movie by fellow NBA players Larry Sanders and Jared Dudley. “Movie 43″ is in theaters today nationwide.
BEST OF MAXIM
Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee is one of the most athletic big men in the league. He simply has trouble remaining focused. On Tuesday, Denver coach George Karl ripped McGee and called him lazy. Maybe the message got through, even for just a brief second. As you can see, McGee threw a pretty alley-oop to himself off the glass in the third quarter of a win over the Houston Rockets...
If you spend enough time paying attention to things, you can learn something new everyday. Denver Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried is a rebounding machine, he hustles on every play imaginable, and he has two mothers.
Yes Faried’s parents are both women, they are lesbian, and they are life partners who deserve the opportunity of a civil union.
Faried’s mother Waudda introduce...
There are a lot of things I don’t understand about the following play. Watch carefully and you’ll likely notice a few of them. For instance, why did Andre Iguodala let James Harden blow right by him without even making a move? Why were two Denver Nuggets looking and pointing at Patrick Patterson? Why did the officials not call a foul on Kosta Koufos? Why is there no...
In less than a month, Timofey Mozgov is unlikely to be with the Nuggets. Since the beginning of the year, calls from other NBA teams have come rolling in concerning a trade for Mozgov more than for any other player on the Denver roster.
Mozgov sits and watches all of this, expressing a desire to stick around. But he prioritizes playing time over staying in Denver. “I want to play...
Of all the Denver Nugget players, Ty Lawson gives us small-fries the best hope that we could make it in the NBA. Never mind the speed, athleticism, and shot-making ability it takes to play in the Association. Seeing Lawson jitterbug across the lane and around gargantuan defenders is not only a thing of beauty, but The post Ty Lawson Growth Chart To Be Given Away At Nuggets/Kings...
The Denver Nuggets are likely to trade Timofey Mozgov by the February 21 deadline.
The Denver Post reports that the Nuggets have received more calls about Mozgov than anyone on the roster. For real? More than Kenneth Faried, Ty Lawson, Andre Iguodala and Danilo Gallinari? I guess if those guys aren't officially on the block, GMs would be less likely to call about them?
DENVER -- Ty Lawson went back in time to deliver another strong game for the Denver Nuggets. Lawson scored 26 points before sitting out the fourth quarter and the Nuggets got off to a fast start and were never threatened in a 121-93 rout of the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night. Andre Iguodala scored 20 points and Danilo Gallinari had 14 for the Nuggets, who have won three straight...
Ty Lawson scored 26 points, Andre Iguodala had 20 and the Denver Nuggets used a strong first three quarters to rout the Sacramento Kings 121-93 on Saturday night.
Danilo Gallinari added 14 points for the Nuggets, who led 71-49 at intermission to set a season high for points in a half. They shot 62 percent in the first two quarters and had three players in double figures.
Former Denver Nugget, Rudy Fernandez, who now plays for Real Madrid, recently defended friend and Olympic teammate Pau Gasol, claiming Mike D’Antoni doesn’t understand him.
Rudy Fernandez: “Pau has proved he’s one of the best big men in the world and if you pass the ball to him in the paint, he’s going to do something good for sure, but D’Antoni doesn’t understand it...
There’s been a lot of conversation lately about how supportive a professional sport’s locker room would be if a male player announced he was gay. So far that hasn’t happened with any current athletes but, several jocks have come out in support of same-sex marriages and civil unions including Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo. Nuggets star Kenneth Faried has joined the conversation...
The Denver Nuggets' recent surge has helped them move up a couple of spots in the Western Conference. They seem to have a good opportunity to push even higher up the standings over the next two weeks.
The Nuggets, one of the league's best home teams, will play the first of a season-high six consecutive games at the Pepsi Center on Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings...
