If there is any player on the San Antonio Spurs who does not shy away from the spotlight, it's Tony Parker.

He is quick to do tons of commercials hawking various items, put out "rap" albums, and was at one point married to actress Eva Longoria which also included that massive, spectacle of a wedding in France.

But it seems TP isn't shy about trying out his acting chops as well.

According to Parker (via French site Le Parisien), Parker's agent had him nearly making his acting debut on the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother." Unfortunately, due to a prior engagement in the United States, he couldn't make the appearance which apparently was to be a big role.

This may have been a blessing in disguise seeing how it could have been a train wreck a la his "rap" career. Who knows if he picked up a few pointers from his ex-wife but needless to say, I may have cringed at TP acting.

Though it sure would have been great fodder for Spurs fans to talk about for years to come.

But this isn't the first time a Spur acted. David Robinson and Sean Elliott made cameos in the movie "Forget Paris," and Robinson also made a cameo in the movie "Like Mike," where he got dunked on by Lil' Bow Wow.
