The 10 Greatest Thespian-Athlete Performances of All Time (Part 1)

The legendary Russian theater director Constantin Stanislavski knew a bullshit actor when he saw one. Before entering his studio for the first time, performers were required to answer the following question: “Did you come here to serve art, and to make sacrifices for its sake, or to exploit your own personal ends?”

This seems like as good a barometer as any for measuring the acting prowess of professional athletes.

If Stanislavski were to sift through all the car dealership commercials, deodorant ads and soft-core porn films featuring ballplayers (as we have done for the past 48 hours), we’re confident that these 10 performances would rise to the top. That’s assuming, of course, he pressed on despite stumbling upon this Wilt Chamberlain commercial for laxatives.

So without further ado, we count down the 10 Greatest Thespian-Athlete Performances of All Time...»
