Best news I heard all week. Mos Def is awesome. Hopefully his role has some depth and he's not wasted.

He's an amazing rapper and actor, among other things.

I like his acting skills, he should be a nice addition to the series.

I think Mos Def is definitely somewhat underrated when it comes to his acting (as sometimes happens to musicians-turned-actors due to the stigma behind it). He definitely is really good and I've enjoyed him in everything I've seen him in.

Agreed very underrated both as a rapper and an actor. I think he works harder because of that though which is great.

I'd take Mos Def in a film over Ludacris or Bow Wow anyday.

lol I think Mos Def over Ludacris or Bow Wow in a film is a given.

I couldn't think of any other rapper/actors =p

JL3134d ago

Tyrese, Common, LL Cool J, Queen Latifah, Marky Mark (lol) and Will Smith are the ones I know that have actually done more than one movie.

Though, I think Will Smith reigns king in that whole realm of rappers-turned actors. Not even Mos Def can touch him there.

He was great in The Italian Job and Be Kind, Rewind

Indeed. I really liked him in 16 Blocks as well.
