Anthony Davis still hasn't confirmed that he's headed to the NBA, but the All-American is definitely going to Hollywood.

The freshman center will be a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, marking his first television appearance since helping Kentucky win the NCAA crown. Also joining him on the show will be Lena Headly, of HBO's Game of Thrones.

Davis, who among many other honors won the Naismith Award and the AP's National Player of the Year, is a 6'10" shot-blocking sensation who was named the NCAA Men's Tournament's Most Outstanding Player. He's expected to enter the NBA draft, where he will likely be chosen with the first overall pick.
