Mos Def Joins HBO Comedy Enlightened

Rapper Mos Def is more known for his acting than his music nowadays. He will join Enlightened, the new HBO comedy starring Laura Dern and Mike White. Dern will play a self-destructive woman who has a spiritual awakening and decides to live an enlightened life, which creates havoc at home and work. Sounds like a typically quirky HBO comedy, one that I am certainly interested in seeing, no doubt.
Mos Def will play the boss of the Dern character. This is the first full-time, series regular gig for Mos Def. He just wrapped a guest spot on House and has appeared in several movies, like Be Kind Rewind.
Who is your favorite rap star turned actor? I am going to go with Ice Cube.
