Rapper/actor Common has his basketball star pals Baron Davis and Dwayne Wade to thank for helping him perfect his role as a sportsman in new movie JUST WRIGHT after turning to them for help and advice.
The hip-hop star plays Scott MCKnight in the romantic comedy, about a top NBA player who falls for his physiotherapist, played by Queen Latifah, as she nurses him back from injury.
Common had to stick to a healthy diet and adopt an intense exercise regime to tone up for the part - but he admits he developed most of his mannerisms and moves on the court from the professionals themselves.
He says, "I'm friends with a few NBA stars so I called them up. Baron Davis, I shadowed him. Dwyane Wade, I talked to him. I took whatever elements I could for Scott MCKnight."
