Carmelo Anthony At Wax Museum: Knicks Star Scares People At Madame Tussauds (VIDEO)

Carmelo Anthony has dabbled in acting before. The Knicks' superstar has appeared on "Nurse Jackie" and "Law & Order: SVU." But posing as a statue in order to scare visitors at the famous Madame Tussauds Wax Musuem in New York was apparently far more difficult than those gigs.

"That's probably one of the toughest acting jobs to do because it's right on the spot," Anthony explained. "You have people coming up to you, they want to touch you and want to get close up.. You just scare them."

The five-time All-Star was honored by Madame Tussauds with his own (real) wax statue, and decided to have a little fun with the honor. Anthony positioned himself in the middle of an exhibit of other wax athletes and scared people who walked by.

No doubt, Knicks fans hope Anthony spends next June winning a championship instead of plotting to make viral videos around Manhattan.
