It is called The Black Mamba , a six-minute film where Bryant plays the title character that will screen at Los Angeles area movie theaters for six days starting Saturday (Feb. 19).
In a partnership between shoemaker Nike and cinema advertising firm Screenvision, the film will be shown ahead of PG13- and R-rated movies at the Chinese, Bruin, Westlake Village and a dozen other theaters.
An insider describes the film as “basically a pitch session between Kobe and director Robert Rodriguez for a collaborative project that’s seemingly an action movie.”
Also starring in the movie who palys "The Boss" is the Hip-hop artist Kanye West.
Bryant has appeared as himself in dozens of TV shows and commercials and he played a character named Terry Hightower in the show Moesha in 1996, the year he was drafted as an NBA rookie. IMDb lists Moesha and The Black Mamba as his lone TV and movie “acting” credits.
