    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.
