Common, much like Ice Cube, Ice-T and Mos Def before him, has pretty much transitioned from rapper to actor, in terms of full-time job. He will star in one of the lead roles in a new AMC western that centers around the construction of the Transcontinental Road. Common recently portrayed a basketball player who finds romance with fellow rapper-turned-mostly-actor Queen Latifah in Just Wright, will play Elam, a biracial freed slave seeking his fortunes along the railroad line. Production is scheduled to begin this August, says EW.
Who is your favorite rapper-turned-actor? And is T.I. going to do the same: switch mostly to onscreen work?
