White Men Can’t Jump

27 Mar, 1992

Harrelson stars in this sports comedy directed and written by Ron Shelton. He plays Billy Hoyle, a hustler who cons people in street basketball games by taking bets and making them believe that white men can’t play ball. He teams up with a black hustler played by Wesley Snipes and together, they scam different street leagues for money. Snipes on working with Harrelson:

That’s what I like about Woody. He looks like he’s the dumb country bumpkin, right? But he’s really, really smart. And he is blessed with the luck of the leprechaun.
