*NBA players have to be creative these days while the league is in lockout. So instead of playing ball, LA Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin decided to go to work for Will Ferrell on the hit comedy site, “Funny Or Die.”
But he’s a part of the production portion. He’ll help write, shoot and edit the videos along with doing some of the acting.
It’s all about the experience he says.
“Just to get an inside look at how things are run here is exciting to me,” Griffin said. “I don’t know what interns at’ Funny Or Die’ are like, but I’m about to find out, I guess.”
What’s going to happen is, the pro-basketball player is going to be treated just like all the other interns.
“We’re going to put him to work,” said Mike Farah, president of production at Funny Or Die. “He’s shooting a series of videos, and he’s also coming to meetings. He’s basically doing everything that an intern does.”
While he’s getting down in the production room, he also launched a basketball camp for kids in his hometown of Oklahoma City.
