The NBA star talked to Pop Culture about his first acting job. He explained how he had initially denied his role alongside Adam Sandler in Hustle.
I told my agent that he asked me to do the castings before COVID hits, three or four or five months before COVID hits. And I told them no. I mean, I didn''t want to do it.
The Spanish basketball player thought the film would be a waste of money.
I mean, I am not going to waste time on something like this. It isn''t my dream. I was focused on basketball, and I was pleased with it, Juancho said.
According to his sources, the basketballer reportedly revealed that his sister was the person who convinced him to change his mind.
We did it at the end. And I dont know how or what they see or what they like, but I continue to do castings and they get me the role.
NBA star says Adam Sandler is like his dad
Hustle on Netflix demonstrates a warm connection between the Juanchos character, Bo Cruz, and Adam Sandlers Stanley Beren.
Stanley, a Philadelphia 76ers scout, discovers Bo, an overseas basketball player. Over the course of time, the two develop a solid connection as they strive to make sure that Bo has what it takes to be in the NBA.
Out-of-the-box, the actors have a similar relationship.
Juancho said the experience "once in a lifetime."
It was fantastic. We got a really good connection, like a close family connection. Hes like my dad, Im like his older son, according to the Utah Jazz player.
We enjoy it so much every day. We spent two months together. We just loved each other. He loves basketball. He plays basketball. We play pickup games at his house. I went to his house. We played golf together.
Because, in real life, we get a great feeling, I feel like I am aware that Bo and Stanley have a great chemistry.
