While on the face of the Met Gala last night, Jack Harlow was asked about his involvement in the upcoming remake of White Men Cant Jump. In reply, he admitted that he didn''t watch the original until after he was shown in the remake, which means it took him a long time to do so before playing his two-on-two game at NBA All-Star 2021 (did I manifest the remake happening? I am adamant to take credit).
Can I be honest? he revealed in response to a Vogue reporters question whether he was familiar with the source material. I was evidently familiar with it, it''s an iconic title, and Ive seen the movie poster, but I didn''t watch it until I got offered the role. I''m surprised how much this is true.

Though news of the casting of Harlows received mixed reviews on social media, his performance in this years NBA All-Star Celebrity Game demonstrates that hes got the range for the role literally, as he hit multiple 25-foot prongs, despite some aggressive shooting form. Despite his limitations, Jack himself may just be hitting up his old buddy Tyler Herro for some points.
