Raptor’s coach Nick Nurse continues to explore his passion for acting off the court.

The professional basketball coach appears in a cameo role as Nick Iowa, a reference to the coach’s home state, on Wednesday’s episode of the CBC crime show “Pretty Hard Cases,” which is currently airing its third season.

Though Nick looks like he’s enjoying himself in the world of Canadian entertainment, the Raptors have been on a mean slump in their last 12 games. Nurse’s name is being thrown around as one to go in an attempt to save the team’s sinking gameplay.

Raptors fans have taken a mixed reaction to the timing of this TV appearance due to the team’s less-than-stellar performance this season.

The acting stint was likely filmed during an NBA offseason stretch, but some Raptors fans on Twitter are still disappointed in Nurse’s use of his time.

One fan referred to Nick as only a “part time basketball coach.”

Speaking of his appearance on CBC’s “Murdoch Mysteries” last January, Nurse told Daily Hive was an honour.

“These people call me up, and I say ‘sure, yeah, let’s go check it out.’ For me, it’s humbling. It’s fun; it’s an honour to do some of that stuff.”

The “Pretty Hard Casesepisode airs on CBC at 9 pm ET on Wednesday, Jan. 4th.
