Shaquille O’Neal Plotting Movie Career, Will Be ‘Going After’ Other Awful Actors

Be forewarned, Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson: with his NBA career now in his rear-view mirror, Shaquille O’Neal has announced via Twitter that he has turned his sights on Hollywood, declaring that it is “Movie time,” and guess what? He’s gunning after all the lameoid roles usually reserved for meatheads like you guys.

In a video posted on his TOUT account, O’Neal informs the world that he’s “going after everybody” during a meeting with his management team. Frightening stuff, indeed, as I cannot imagine anyone else bringing the same quality, nuanced acting in a tour de force performance in the role of Richard B. Riddick as one Vin Diesel. And if Shaq thinks he can just step in to The Rock’s tutu for Tooth Fairy 2: Electric Boogaloo, well, he’s got another thing coming.
