Mark Cuban: businessman, investor, philanthropist, Dallas Mavericks owner, star of 'Shark Tank' and now... Super Villain?
Mark Cuban is slated to play a megalomaniac named Mark Cuban on an upcoming episode of 'American Dad!' On the animated comedy series, Cuban is plotting to blow up the sun in order to become the #1 force in the universe. Who could possibly stop this wealthy maniac? Why, Stan Smith of course. But the eponymous 'American Dad!' isn't going to do it alone--he's joined by a team of four sexy flight attendants with a 'Charlie's Angels' vibe, played by four high-profile guest stars.
The foxy ladies will be played by Gillian Jacobs ('Community'), Becki Newton ('Ugly Betty'), Thandie Newton ('Mission: Impossible II') and Megalyn Echikunwoke ('CSI: Miami'). All four of these guest stars will join Cuban in the upcoming episode, which is slated to air in 'American Dad!'s upcoming ninth season.
Beyond being a very proud, visible and vocal owner of the NBA franchise Dallas Mavericks, Cuban is the owner of Magnolia Pictures. In the past few years he has made several attempts to purchase NHL & MLB franchises, including the Pittsburgh Penguins (in the NHL) and baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers--doesn't seem like too much of a stretch to paint him as a megalomaniac now, does it?
Cuban has recently appeared as himself on 'Dallas,' 'Necessary Roughness' and WWE's flagship weekly program, 'Raw.'
