Fresh Off the Boat: Shaquille O'Neal to Hold Court in Season 2

Fresh Off the Boat‘s latest casting is a slam-dunk: Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal will guest-star in the ABC comedy’s upcoming sophomore season, TVLine has learned.

Details about the gig are scarce, but we do know that  O’Neal — who will film his part in early September — will be part of the season’s third episode, titled “Shaquille O’Neal Motors.”

O’Neal played for six teams during his pro basketball career. In the mid-1990s, the time period in which Fresh Off the Boat is set, O’Neal was a member of the Orlando Magic and, later, the Los Angeles Lakers.

His TV resumé features roles on My Wife and Kids, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Parkers and Southland. A pilot for Shaq Inc., a workplace comedy starring and executive-produced by the All-Star, received a pilot order at truTV in January.

And his film career? Well, we’ll make the obligatory Kazaam reference and leave it at that.

O’Neal currently is an analyst on TNT’s Inside the NBA.

Fresh Off the Boat returns Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 8:30/7:30c.
