There’s talk about Olympic diving star Greg Louganis getting a role in an upcoming Marlon Brando movie. Louganis has long been interested in an entertainment career and has danced professionally and made his stand-up debut at Los Angeles’s Improv comedy club right after picking up his two gold medals in Seoul. Now People magazine says there’s talk about him appearing in “Jericho,” the story of a CIA agent written by and starring Brando. Producer Elliot Kastner denies Louganis is scheduled for a part, but the swimmer’s agent, Rick Hersh, confirms there have been discussions about a role. Production starts in Mexico in early January.
