Jesus Shuttlesworth

Jeses Shuttlesworth
Generally, when you take an active athlete and put him in a major movie, the results are disastrous (Shaquille O’Neal we are looking in your direction!), but Ray Allen gave a very earnest performance in Spike Lee’s “He Got Game”. The three point specialist played, Jesus Shuttlesworth (is that not a cool name or what?), who was widely recruited by multiple institutions to play hoops, and his father (Denzel Washington) was granted a week long sabbatical from prison to help convince him to play for the college of his Warden’s alma mater in return for a reduced prison stay. The highlight for us (and we are sure others) was the one on one game between Allen and Washington; which justified to us the casting of a non-actor in that role although, we have to say; what was the deal with that ending?
