Eminem Interested In Playing Paraplegic Athlete

Rapper EMINEM wants to return to the big screen to play a reallife paraplegic athlete.

The 8 MILE star is said to be so impressed with new documentary MURDERBALL, which focuses on wheel-chair bound American rugby player MARK ZUPAN, he wants to play him in the movie of his life.

Zupan admits even he was surprised when he heard the news: "I have a friend that works for the William Morris Agency and he got a phonecall that Eminem was interested in playing either me or a guy in the film if this ever gets made into a Hollywood movie.

"It was kinda weird. When you hear something like that you're like, `Where am I? Who is this person and what is going on?'"
