You know that show “Nurse Jackie?” On Showtime? With that woman who used to be Mrs. Soprano?

Well, Carmelo Anthony is going to be on Sunday’s episode, reports the New York Daily News (via SLAM).

Anthony will make a guest appearance on Showtime’s hit dark comedy ‘Nurse Jackie’ playing a fallen pro hoops player. In the episode, scheduled to air Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, Anthony plays one of an eclectic group of patients who participate in a group therapy session with the show’s title character (played by Edie Falco) at a Manhattan rehab facility.

You can make up your own “fallen pro hoops player” jokes based on how ‘Melo and the Knicks look against the Heat earlier on Sunday. (They do get Miami at Madison Square Garden, and the Heat have not looked good on the road lately.)

The show is about Jackie and her prescription pill addiction. That pretty much sums up everything I know about it. Check your local listings if you want to see the episode.

    Yup, definitely going the extra mile to make the Knicks better.

    I think he plays a baseball player…
    Per the NY Post
    “He plays Wayne, a baseball player who also is a drug addict. Anthony explains he intentionally got hit with a fastball, shattering his wrist, because he knew this would require several months of painkillers. The episode was filmed during the NBA lockout.”

    That’s why he wanted to come to new York right?

      Of course he did. Who wouldn’t want a second career after the first one ends. Even if he sucks as an actor u cant blame him from trying

    He was on the 2nd episode almost two weeks ago. Talk about breaking news. A little too late
