Alan Ray is American actor and professional basketball player who currently plays for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
In 1998, Allen co-starred alongside Denzel Washington in the Spike Lee film He Got Game as high school basketball phenomenon Jesus Shuttlesworth. Roger Ebert praised his performance and said Allen "is that rarity: an athlete who can act," while New York magazine described him as "graceful and fast in the basketball scenes" while giving "a somberly effective minimalist performance."
His role as Shuttlesworth earned him the nickname "Jesus" from teammates and fans. Allen also appeared as Marcus Blake in the 2001 film Harvard Man.
