Film and TV

First, He Was Tron. Then, The Big Lebowski. Now, Dirk Nowitzki's Navin R. Johnson.



Back in April we ran that Dirk Nowitzki film festival alluded to in the headline. Cute stuff, especially Dirk as The Dude. Tonight at the AAC, when Your Dallas Mavericks take on the Shaq-less Boston Celtics, debuts another addition to the filmography starring Dirk as Steve Martin as The Jerk. Sneak peek now if you're not headed to basketball. As our Noah Bailey puts it, with deep affection, "Dirk has a special talent for not acting."
