Rick Fox

Actor/Retired basketball player

Ulrich Alexander "Rick" Fox gained worldwide notoriety as a professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers. Throughout his athletic career, the three time NBA champ exercised his talent as not only a ballplayer, but an actor, having scored roles in films and television series such as Eddie, Spike Lee's He Got Game and the HBO prison drama Oz. After retiring from the pros in 2004, the Canadian-born baller tackled acting full time, starring in a number of projects, most notably Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns, House of Payne and BET's The Game, where he plays a fictionalized version of himself. Fox also starred on the 11th season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars, where he came in sixth place.
