Jim Rome Still Being Paid For His Brief ‘Space Jam’ Cameo (Photo)


Remember Jim Rome’s big role in the classic movie “Space Jam”?

Yeah, neither do we. Here’s a refresher:

Yes, that’s Jim Rome coming live from Michael Jordan’s living room, ripping the Basketball Hall of Famer for his unsuccessful foray into professional baseball.

The talk show host’s brief cameo apparently is still paying off nearly 20 years later, as Rome on Wednesday tweeted a picture of a residual check for his appearance in the 1996 film.

As the tweet shows, however, he isn’t exactly making the big bucks. [tweet https://twitter.com/jimrome/status/456651814423638016 align=’center’]

Rome’s big payout totals a whopping $6.38, which might be just enough for the “Jim Rome Show” host to find a discount DVD of the timeless classic and re-watch his 45-second performance.

Don’t quit your day job, Jim.
