Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo searching for actors in upcoming Disney movie about himself
The two-time MVP is searching for actors to play him and his brother, Bucks forward Thanasis Antetokounmpo.
Disney is making a movie based on my family’s story and they are searching for actors to play me and my brother, Thanasis, in our younger days. No experience necessary! It helps if you resemble the handsome boys pictured below and have some basketball experience. SPREAD THE WORD!

Disney is looking for someone to play Giannis at 13-15 years old and 15-18 years old. The movie will document the Bucks star’s journey from being poor in Greece to becoming one of the best basketball players in the NBA in a short amount of time.
Giannis Antetokounmpo made history during the 2019-20 season despite the Bucks losing in the second round of the playoffs to the Miami Heat. The Greek Freak won the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year Award, becoming just the third player ever to win both awards in the same season.
Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon are the other two players to accomplish the said feat.
The Bucks can offer Giannis the supermax extension this offseason. If he declines the offer, Giannis will become an unrestricted free agent after the conclusion of the 2020-21 campaign.
Since getting drafted by the Bucks in 2013 with the 15th overall pick, Giannis has compiled averages of 20.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists in the regular season. He’s a four-time All-Star and was the 2017 Most Improved Player of the Year.
The Bucks forward will likely be a first-ballot Hall of Famer one day since he has two MVPs on his belt, as well as a DPOY trophy.
