Video: ‘Melo stretches acting chops on “Nurse Jackie”

Apr 16, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

WARNING: If you are easily offended by language do not push play. This is a cable show, they don’t have to censor.

Carmelo Anthony was on Nurse Jackie — the Showtime show about a pill-popping nurse played by Mrs. Soprano (who would probably prefer to be known as Edie Falco) — and had to extend his acting range out to play a professional baseball player. Melo was pretty convincing, and a bunch of MLB pitchers caught the episode then went to bed dreaming of hitters with strike zones that large.

Hat tip to the boys at The Basketball Jones.

    Meh, I’ve after watching him “act” like he truly wants to win more then he wants fame and fortune for the last 3 years, I can say this was an average performance for Melo.

    He’s getting better at pretending to play defense though.
