Wade Redden, Movie Star?

I just caught this on Reddit so apologies if this is old news, but according to IMDB.com, Wade Redden is listed as playing “himself” in Steve Oedekerk’s “Kung Pow 2:  Tongue of Fury”.  Say whaaa?  I’m assuming that the only Wade Redden famous enough to star in a film as himself would be that mook from the New York Rangers.

Ummm, cool?  I don’t know, I’m just confused.
