Bleacher Report

"NBA on TNT — it's a nice side gig"

Lately it seems like everyone is getting in on True Detective, and now Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley are throwing their hats in the ring.

Bleacher Report released a funny parody today of O'Neal and Barkley's audition tape. In the clip, "talent scout" Adam Lefkoe convinced the duo to try out for the starring roles in the show. Shaq plays Matthew McConaughey's role because he's "sexier" and Barkley tackles Woody Harrelson since they are both bald.

"Somebody once told me that time is a flat circle, but actually it's a round ball," Shaq says as the duo make fun of the NBA in their comedic audition. No need to keep looking for season-three stars, HBO. The pair is right here.
