Jose Canseco, Master Thespian

This image was lost some time after publication.

We suppose this career transition makes sense. Baseball's most inexplicable Paul Revere Jose Canseco, after meeting with Oliver Stone, has now decided he's going to be an action star. The LA Times details his almost directly vertical climb, including his strange decision to hire a complete moron as his agent, or manager, or whatever the hell they call them out there.

But here's the best part:

[Canseco is] making the rounds of film studios, TV networks and production companies, complete with a demo tape that features the 6-foot-4 former slugger, a black belt in martial arts, deftly twirling a numchuck as a sultry woman in a nightgown lounges nearby. Another scene, shot with Canseco's 8-year-old daughter, Josie, is designed to showcase his more sensitive side.


We don't ask much here at Deadspin. But please, please, please can someone send us that tape? It deserves to be shared with the world.
