T.I. Signs On for Comedy ‘Identity Thief’


T.I. is ready to return to the big screen. After starring in such box office hits as Takers and American Gangster, the rapper-turned-actor is tackling comedy.

Tip has joined the cast of Universal Pictures’ Identity Thief, reports Deadline.com. He will play a bounty hunter in the film, which stars Jason Bateman (Juno) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids).

That’s not the only role T.I. has lined up. He will co-star in Kelsey Grammer’s drama series Boss for Starz and is shooting the second season of his VH1 docu-series “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle,” which premieres September 3.

The Atlanta MC’s eighth album Trouble Man is due September 4.

    @Mas, you obviously misinterpreted what I was saying sweetheart.. “noooiceee” is a varied version of “niceee” meaning I’m happy for him.. so have a seat..

    @MsMickii, tell him again please. Why are people so quick to respond negatively when they don’t even truly know wtf they are responding to? @Mas, read and understand…that bitch you were referring to might be in your mirror.

    I liked his cameo in Entourage, I think he can actually be quite funny when he wants to be.
