Amy Schumer relaxes before show inside LeBron James’ locker (pic)


Amy Schumer is one of the biggest comedians in the world and apparently used her superstar status to find a nice and cozy place to curl up with a book ahead of Thursday’s performance at Quicken Loans Arena:

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ locker room. More specifically, inside LeBron James’ locker.

The comedian-actress posted photographic evidence of her making herself comfortable inside the spacious confines of James’ locker.

Schumer and James of course got to know each other quite well while working on the 2015 Judd Apatow film “Trainwreck,” which starred the aforementioned superstars alongside Bill Hader. In fact, the two apparently became fast friends.

In fact, James even took to Twitter to reassure Schumer she’s more than welcome to use his locker as her reading nook anytime she’s in Cleveland.

James obviously wasn’t around but we do know where he plans to be come Friday afternoon.

Off the court, James has been making considerable inroads into Hollywood over the past several years. Not only is he slated to produce a sitcom for NBC, it was also just revealed a few weeks ago by Mark Wahlberg that he and James are trying to put together a movie project.

On the television front, James recently sold his production company’s first scripted series,  a sports medicine drama, also to NBC.

Other television projects produced by James’ production company SpringHill Entertainment include “Cleveland Hustle,” a reality series airing on CNBC, as well as “Survivor’s Remorse, airing on Starz. The latter series is loosely based on James’ life. James also has a game show in the works called “The Wall,” which is slated to air on NBC as well.

But how about a “Trainwreck” sequel? Anything’s possible. Perhaps Schumer left a note for James about it in his locker.
