Glad someone mentioned it, he also has a pair of those shoes, not sure what they're call 4% or something. And I don't believe anyone can make it to high level in any field, without being mentally tough, so he has that in his favor also. I think he has his own Nike shoes too, like Kanye West has with a different company.
Glad Hart is running it. He provided some fun commentary when he was onsite for Breaking2.
If he trains somewhat seriously, he should break 4.
Unfortunately, that's the summary of elite athletics today. Lack of headlines because TV is entertainment. And there arent charismatic characters. People doesn't care about (lets say) Paul Chelimo, Galen Rupp, Clayton Murphy, etc...
Unfortunately now the race day tv now will be 75% his running comedy show with some elite highlights thrown in
Why does the fact that he played basketball mean that he's "fast-twitch oriented"?

Highly doubt he needs to even go more than 40 a week. A 4 hour marathon for someone that's fit is not that difficult. Then again Tiki Barber has put up atrocious times for what I'd think he's capable of but I don't know his training and/or if he suffers from injuries related to running.

On a tweet from a couple years ago, he says he ran a 21:54 5k.

The ego these entertainers have.
Why is it HUGE NEWS when a young healthy person decides to run a marathon? Oh, because he's famous for something else? So that makes HIS entry special?
Well how about this, I was a DIII track All American, and my big announcement is I'M GONNA TELL JOKES IN PUBLIC! What's YOUR "moon shot"?!?!?!?!
