The Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire and (free agent) guard Baron Davis have both had quite the busy offseason this summer.

Among other things (like getting engaged), Stoudemire has been rounding out his summer by working on his post game with one of the best, Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon, this past week in Houston.

After suffering a knee injury in the 2012 NBA playoffs that will potentially keep him off the hardwood for up to a year, Davis has already begun to work vigorously towards rehabbing. He and fellow injured Knicks guard Iman Shumpert have trained together in New York as they both look to make their way back.

Nevertheless, with a little bit of extra time on their hands, Davis and Stoudemire will reportedly try their chops at acting.

The Knickerbocker duo, as well as Pacers forward Danny Granger, will appear in an upcoming episode of The Mindy Project, a new comedy on Fox starring The Office alum and avid NBA fan Mindy Kaling.

The three players will play themselves during a scene in which the show's characters party with them inside a nightclub's V.I.P. section. The fact that Granger will guest alongside the two Knicks is quite ironic, granted he took opportunities to take cheap shots at the team over the course of last season. 
This isn't the first time either Davis or Stoudemire have tried their hand at acting. Though Davis had a cameo in the Adam Sandler summer flick, "That's My Boy," his most recent role came as Brian Davies in a web series focusing on the Olympics.

Stoudemire has played himself in a couple of films, but also guest-starred on TV Land's The Exes last season. Clips of both Knicks playing different roles can be found below.
