MANILA, Philippines — "Space Jam: A New Legacy" has gotten more star-studded with a confirmed cameo from the original's star Michael Jordan.
Cast member Don Cheadle revealed Jordan's participation in the movie in his recent interview with Access Hollywood — but there is a catch.
"Michael Jordan is in the movie," Cheadle said.
"But not in the way you'd expect it," he added.
Cheadle's comment may mean that Jordan's cameo may be far from the traditional sense of the word.
The movie, which passes the torch from Jordan to four-time NBA champion LeBron James, features a number of improved tweaks from the 1996 original — like an animated version of the Los Angeles Lakers star.
