LeBron James has been all over television with State Farm commercials, Beats By Dre and other endorsements, but his acting skills are about to be put to a real test.

James is set to co-star in a film about you ... guessed it -- BASKETBALL, with Kevin Hart called "Ballers."

The storyline is about a underachieving basketball player getting his chance to shine. The film is due to come out Summer 2014 and we'll see if James is really HOLLYWOOD material.
