Jonathan Majors to play Dennis Rodman in '48 hours in Vegas' film
Jonathan Majors stars as the film’s antagonist, Damian Anderson, in Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut. In the coming months, he will also familiarize himself with a story that Michael J. Jordan knows all too well. Majors is slated to portray Dennis Rodman in an upcoming film “48 Hours in Vegas.” The story is inspired by Rodman’s impromptu vacation to Las Vegas in January 1998 when he played for the Chicago Bulls. Jordan, his teammate at the time, recalled the incident in Episode 3 of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” docuseries. “I’m looking at [head coach] Phil [Jackson], ‘You ain’t gonna get that dude back in 48 hours. I don’t care what you say. He’s done.’ He leaves that room, goes straight to the airport, boom! We don’t hear or see Dennis for 48 hours,” Jordan said.
