James plays himself in the movie, but when asked if he feels like a movie star, he says no way.

“I’m no movie star. I know my day job,” James said.

Apparently he’s not just talented on the court, he’s also getting rave reviews from his co-stars.

“It’s unfair how funny he is in the movie,” comedian Bill Hader said. “I went to school for improv and he’s just so naturally funny.”

Writer and co-star Amy Schumer agreed. “People are going to be blown away with how good he is,” Schumer said. “He was the funniest person on set and these are professional comedians.”

Another comedian in the movie, Vanessa Bayer, is from Cleveland. She said working with Lebron was incredible.

“Everyone was so starstruck,” Bayer said. “But I’m like guys, I’m from Cleveland, I’m the most starstruck."

Since he is so good, many are wondering if there will be more movies in his future.

“If it feels right and the right thing for myself I wouldn’t mind,” James said.

As for 'Trainwreck,' don’t miss it when it hits theaters July 17.
