Boban Marjanovic has already become an NBA darling. Now it’s time for him to take over Hollywood.
Boban Marjanovic has become a darling of NBA fans since his debut with the San Antonio Spurs in 2015. While Marjanovic has never played huge minutes, he’s won over hearts and minds with his effervescent personality and astonishingly effective style of play, which basically consists of just setting up shop near the basket and rebounding and dunking the ball, all while seemingly trying to leave his feet as few times as possible. There’s something truly compelling about seeing Boban make other large humans look tiny in comparison. Also, if you looked only at per-36 and advanced stats, you could easily think that Boban is the best player in NBA history as, for his career, he averages 23 points and 14 rebounds per 36 minutes and also holds the fourth highest PER in league history.
Now, Boban is branching out and making his first appearance in a feature film as he plays the role of “Assassin” in the upcoming film, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum. The film’s first trailer was released online today and in it, we are able to briefly see Boban kick the titular character down before the tables turn and he is punched in the face by Wick, while a book is being held in his mouth for some reason.
While this is his first time appearing in a movie, it’s not his first time in front of a camera as he once appeared in a commercial for World Car Nissan while a Spur, hyping up the “awesome” sound system of a Nissan Armada. Watching Boban appear in John Wick is sure to be a treat for NBA fans, and in the interim, they can watch him play for the Los Angeles Clippers tomorrow night against the Warriors on ESPN.
