COMIC REEL: LeBron James Has "Hope" For "Space Jam" Sequel, Doctor Who Joins "Star Wars"


Clear Bill Murray's schedule. LeBron James may need him for an upcoming "Space Jam" sequel.

The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar has been compared to Michael Jordan his entire career, and while he may never surpass the Bulls legend in NBA Championships, he may be able to outdo him on the big screen. James made Hollywood hay with his comedic turn in Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck," and the broad content-creation deal with Warner Bros. that he recently entered has many speculating that he and the studio have designs to revisit the disproportionately beloved MJ/Looney Tunes 1996 feature, wherein an alien invasion can only be thwarted by teaming up the NBA's biggest star with the beloved cartoon stars. During an appearance on "Today," James stoked the fires when asked if a "Space Jam" sequel was on the horizon.

"We hope so. We're definitely missing Bugs and Daffy and Tasmanian Devil and every last one of them, so hopefully we can do some great things."

While there's still nothing official, it sure looks like LeBron James will be taking his talents to toon town, sooner or later.

Trainwreck is in theaters now


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... a Doctor was needed.

Tom Baker, "Doctor Who"'s fourth Doctor, revealed last week at Slough, England's Day of the Doctor convention that he will be joining the "Star Wars" mythology. The 81-year-old will lend his voice to an upcoming "Star Wars" installment.

"I'm going to be in this new 'Star Wars' thing, you know?" he told fans, according to ScifiFantastyNetwork. "I'm going down to record some voices for this new character they've created for me, very soon."

From his remarks, it was unclear whether Baker's contribution would come in one of the "Star Wars" main Episode features, one of the Anthology standalones, or a cartoon or TV project.
