Carmelo Anthony to appear on “Nurse Jackie” Sunday night

7 Comments

You know that show “Nurse Jackie?” On Showtime? With that woman who used to be Mrs. Soprano?

Well, Carmelo Anthony is going to be on Sunday’s episode, reports the New York Daily News (via SLAM).

Anthony will make a guest appearance on Showtime’s hit dark comedy ‘Nurse Jackie’ playing a fallen pro hoops player. In the episode, scheduled to air Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, Anthony plays one of an eclectic group of patients who participate in a group therapy session with the show’s title character (played by Edie Falco) at a Manhattan rehab facility.

You can make up your own “fallen pro hoops player” jokes based on how ‘Melo and the Knicks look against the Heat earlier on Sunday. (They do get Miami at Madison Square Garden, and the Heat have not looked good on the road lately.)

The show is about Jackie and her prescription pill addiction. That pretty much sums up everything I know about it. Check your local listings if you want to see the episode.
