Kareem Abdul-Jabbar may be known as a basketball player, but many people remember him as Roger Murdock from "Airplane." He was also on the diving show "Splash." On Sept. 30, Contact Music reported that Kareem will be acting as Roger Murdock again but it will be for several commercials.
These are for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. Robert Hayes will join him in the commercials and so he will not be the only one playing his role again. Jim Abrahams directed the movie and will be back to direct the commercials as well. It sounds like they mean business and these could be some really great commercials.
There is one very small preview pic out on Twitter. You can check it out here and see what Kareem looks like in his outfit for the commercial shoot.
