Hollywood: Steve Nash Debuts as Director

Steve Nash added documentary director to his resume. Like he needed more credentials. Geesh. We would've hired him.

The Suns star says he  was captivated in 1980 by Terry Fox's determination to hobble across the country on his artificial leg to raise money for cancer research.

In ESPN's "30 for 30" series the story "Into the Wind" aired Tuesday. It has already been shown at the Toronto International Film Festival and on Canadian television.

Accroding to NBA.com:
The 21-year-old Fox, who had lost his right leg to cancer, ran for 143 days, crossing two-thirds of the country on his Marathon of Hope. He never completed the trip, halted by newly discovered tumors, and died in June 1981.
Nash said on a conference call Wednesday he was fascinated by "the conflict between being this humble, quiet kid who wanted to shy away from the spotlight, and at the same time his quest was built on attention."
The two-time MVP co-directed the film with Ezra Holland, his cousin and business partner in production company Meathawk.

That's big things.
