    by Hollyscoop

    LaShawn Merritt will try to win his second straight Olympic gold medal in the 400 meters this year, but the USA Track & Field star has another passion you may not know of. Merritt recently told ESPN, "Sometimes I look at TV, at the acting and I feel like, I could do that." He has trips to Los Angeles planned this fall to meet with industry execs. "If you were a fly on the wall at my house, you would see me talking a little bit, repeating what's going on on TV just to see how I sound," he said.
