LeBron James took his family to see a movie – his movie. The NBA megastar hosted an invitation-only screening Friday night for “Trainwreck,” a comedy in which James co-stars with Amy Schumer and Bill Hader. James plays himself in the film, acting as Hader’s best friend and life coach. James wanted his co-stars to see his hometown, so he held the VIP screening at a theater just a short drive from his home. James often takes his two sons to the cinema complex. This is the first major acting role for James, who has appeared in numerous television commercials and once hosted “Saturday Night Live,” where he worked with Hader. – AP
