Matt Kemp's Thespian Side

Did you know Matt Kemp has a blog? It's at Yardbarker, the home of Chad Billingsley's dormant blog, so we're not worried Matty will outdo us with the updates. But his latest (okay, second) entry brings us news of Kemp's appearance on the BET reality show "Played by Fame," kind of a reverse "Punk'd" where celebrities play jokes on their fans.

The burning question: Can Kemp act? See for yourself. The program consists of three clips, and I have to say I was impressed by the Bison's screen presence. Dude's got charisma, and sold his supposed superstitions rather convincingly. And be sure to look for Kemp's best line, in Clip 3: "Watch the cracks, watch the cracks!"

Are you sure that is the Dodger's Matt Kemp? They said he was a power hitter...

Oh man, this is freakin' hilarious! I don't think I've ever said that about anything on BET before.

I could use a Matt Kemp-approved electrified fly-swatter.
