Kareem Abdul-Jabbar stars in a new commercial with Robert Hays for the Wisconsin tourism industry in which both reprise their roles from the classic satirical comedy “Airplane!”
Abdul-Jabbar’s role as “Roger Murdock,” one of the plane’s co-pilots, is considered by many the greatest movie cameo by an athlete of all time. Abdul-Jabbar was still very much in the prime of his career when the movie was released in 1980.
