But what about Rick Fox? Rick Fox the former husband of Vanessa Williams is a good actor and he's consistently working in Hollywood. So it is possible for an athlete to move on from professional sports and transition into Hollywood. People don't even think of Rick Fox as athlete these days they seem him as a good actor so it can be done.
