LeBron James is getting pretty good at playing himself.

The NBA star has been showing off his comedy skills this summer in Amy Schumer's Trainwreck; his surprisingly hilarious turn as the famous best friend of Bill Hader's character has critics dubbing him "Judd Apatow's secret weapon." Now he's making the leap from the silver screen to the small screen with his guest turn on the Starz series Survivor's Remorse.

James is already executive producer of the show, which returns for Season 2 on August 22. And he'll play a mean game of cards in the October 17 episode. Reggie (RonReaco Lee, far right in the photo above) is trying to position himself and his cousin Cam, the young basketball star he manages, as big players off the court, just like King James. "We were playing a high-stakes game of poker called Guts," Lee says. "LeBron and I go to-to-toe in one hand. I'll never forget it."
