Give him the Oscar now.

Anthony Edwards might have a career in acting when this whole basketball thing is through. The star guard is trending on Twitter for his role in the recently released Netflix film Hustle. The movie follows a scout (Sandler) who’s putting his fading NBA career in the hands of a European superstar.

When a down-on-his-luck basketball scout finds a potential superstar in Spain, he sets out to prove they both have what it takes to make it in the NBA.

Edwards plays the antagonist as his character is a potential top pick (that sounds familiar) that gets into the head of Sandler’s European hero.

Check out a few clips from the movie below.

Early reviews of the film pick Edwards out as the film’s top NBA star. In all, there are more than 60 pro hoopers and coaches in the movie.

The remaining cast includes Trae Young, Boban Marjanovic, Luka Doncic, and Kyle Lowry among others. But none makes quite the impact on the big screen of Edwards.

Edwards’s comedic side shouldn’t surprise anyone. The man is hilarious in nearly every interview he gives. The only thing that might outweigh his humor is his confidence. I mean who else would name their pet after themselves??

The immediate reaction on social media was one of praise for the former No. 1 overall pick.

NBA world reacts to Anthony Edwards’s role in ‘Hustle’

Edwards is fantastic in his role as a bully, and while his character is technically the bad guy, it’s hard not to like him as an actor. His sense of humor shines, as do his abilities on the court. Did you see that windmill jam in the last clip?

Here’s the response on Twitter.

Some are calling him the best actor in the NBA. Not bad for his debut. Head over to Netflix to see for yourself.
