Since his playing days are over, former Boston Celtic F Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis has transitioned into acting. He has already land roles with shows such as Benched, Shameless, and The Lincoln Lawyer. Davis was a guest on the All The Smoke Podcast with Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes.
During the episode, he talked about how he was able to get into acting.
“I started acting because of comedy. I do stand-up comedy, so I was doing a comedy show in LA, and a woman that does casting and she booked my first job with Shameless,” said Davis.
“So, after Shameless, which was a great role and great opportunity because that shoe does so well, I got another opportunity with a show called bench, which is another lawyer show. Then I had more opportunity with Lincoln Lawyer… They gave me a couple lines, but just that little part book me another gig for Power.”
Barnes to asked Davis to tell them more about Power.
“When I got the call, I was like what the f***. I got a call from the writer, but I was at an event, and I told 50, yo, I act. I’m like, I’m on Shameless, and he just seen me on Lincoln Lawyer. So, he called me up with the writer, and I’m talking to him,” said the NBA Champion.
“They were like, bro, we got you; you’re going to be a character on Power. It’s a blessing. It really is a blessing, man. I was a theatre major in college… Entertainment is my thing and to do what I love again is really a blessing.”
Davis did not share what series of Power that he will be featured on, so we will have to wait and see where he shows up in the Power Universe.
Davis was a member of the Boston Celtics that won an NBA Championship in 2008 against the Los Angeles Lakers.
