Watch The Trailer For Kobe Bryant’s Revealing Showtime Documentary
Kobe Bryant is a strange bird. On one hand, he's a good-looking superstar with an unwavering dedication to his craft, who people universally respect as a professional basketball player. On the other hand, he's dripping with a distinct brand of smarmy gravitas that makes him particularly unlikable, which has kept him from having any meaningful presence in pop-culture.
Jordan hosted SNL. LeBron hosts SNL. Imagine Kobe hosting SNL? Ya -- he's DEFINITELY more of a dramatic actor. (Cough, too serious, cough.)
Case in point: Bryant has teamed up with Showtime to make a documentary detailing his injury-plagued last few seasons in the NBA.
It's called "Kobe Bryant's Muse," and it looks predictably intense.
"I have things I want to dive into. Things I want to get off my chest," he says over footage of courtroom doors. "I don't have the patience to write a book, so I'll do it this way."
"What I found through the process was that it became more than a documentary. It became therapy on film."
If watching Kobe spill his guts on camera sounds appealing to you, you've got two months until the full documentary airs in February, when he may or may not be playing on a different team.
