LeBron James will join the cast of Judd Apatow's comedy "Trainwreck."

Makes sense to cast a basketball player, since it sounds like the film is about the relationship between the Warriors' front office and recently-fired coach Mark Jackson.

James will join Cliff (Method Man) Smith, Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer, Tilda Swinton, John Cena and Mike Birbiglia, according to Deadline Hollywood.

This comes on the heels of Universal buying the rights to a movie about James and his high school teammates that will be written by Frank E. Flowers, with Rachel Winter and Terence Winter producing with James and his manager, Maverick Carter.

It's good to be LeBron James.
