Amar'e Stoudemire is going to have an on-screen kiss.

While locked out from his primary occupation, Amar'e Stoudemire has been plenty active in other domains. Most notably, he's been all up in our televisions, making guest appearances on Entourage and Sesame Street (reports also include Law and Order: SVU, but wasn't that just Melo? Did Amar'e show up on SVU as well?). Now, the Post reports that Amar'e is taking the next step toward on-screen legitimacy: ROMANCE!

...the Knick will appear on TV Land’s "The Exes" opposite Kristen Johnston in a January episode. He plays an NBA star who dates Johnston, and we’re told the two end up kissing on screen.

First of all, I had no idea TV Land was in the original programming game. Wikipedia.com informs that this is a relatively recent development. Good job, citizens of TV Land! I also wasn't entirely certain who Kristen Johnston is, so I went to Wikipedia for that, too:

She may be most famous for her role as Sally Solomon in the television series 3rd Rock from the Sun. She also starred as Wilma Flintstone in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.

Oh yeahhhhh! Lucky Amar'e! I'm jealous! "Wilma Flintstone from The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" is on my bucket list under the sub-heading "Characters from The Flinstones in Viva Rock Vegas to Hook Up With". I can't believe Amar'e's beating me to that life accomplishment. (Update: blackhova informs us that Johnston also played Ivana Humpalot.)

Anyway, this is big news for Amar'e, and an excellent opportunity to extend his range. As his unauthorized agent, I'm really looking for Amar'e to branch out beyond the "NBA star" typecast. At the moment, I'm entertaining a few offers for spin-offs (Two Broke Girls and a Gigantic Rich Guy; Mike & Molly & also Melvin, Who Is Quite Tall But Not Obese For Contractual Reasons) that might suit my client very well.
