T.I. to Star Opposite Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe in American Gangster

TI.jpgT.I. has landed a role opposite two Academy Award winners in the Universal Pictures film American Gangster. In the film, Denzel Washington will play a 1970s drug lord who smuggles heroin into Harlem inside the coffins of soldiers returning from Vietnam. Russell Crowe plays a city detective on his trail. T.I. will play the nephew of Washington’s character. “There’s a bunch of Academy Award winners on this cast and I’m just there to learn. I’m in school,” the Atlanta rapper told Billboard.com. Ridley Scott, who directed Crowe in Gladiator, will also helm American Gangster, which commenced shooting this week in Queens, New York. T.I. is also reportedly at work on T.I. vs. T.I.P., his fifth studio album.

  • JSUN

    I thought TIP did a great job in ATL…. Looking forward to seeing this one….

  • John Cochran

    That man know how to get his money. I appreciate his hustle and I hope the next album is gritty. King was a little too commercial for me. Take it back 2 trap musik. Imma watch the flick cause a Denzel, but hopefully Tip does well too.

    >> Killa Cam Says: This movie will suck at the box office.

    Yeah, cause Denzel and Russell Crowe always flop…

  • http://Yahoo BXNY

    Denzel is one of the best actors out there..not hating on Russel Crowe either…Denzel is going to tear it up!

  • jonjon-23

    T.I. might not be the greatest actor but he makin’ it happen in the studio. He’s one of the few good rappers out right now.

  • Corinne

    I’m sorry but…..all the rappers out there and they pick out T.I., the Southern guy, with the Southern accent. I hope Denzel knows how to fake it cause there’s no way T.I. is going to. Hey, it could be worse, it could be Bow Wow or some shit like that…..Chingy…

  • Ellio

  • Peachy

  • Profit

    Can T.I. even pull off acting like a Harlem nigga? They shoulda cast someone actually from Harlem…(anybody but Cam)

  • Soy Cal P

    King of the south? Not T.I. or luda or lil wayne. Tis Outkast. They are the kings of the south.

  • gluvnast

    it’s hard to see T.I. as a harlem nigga, but if ICE-T pulled it off in “new jack city” then anything’s possible

    besides, you got denzel, russell crowe, and ridley scott as the director (the director of gladiator & black hawk down)…it’s going to be a dope movie REGARDLESS

  • Peachy

    T.I. and T.I.P is the same person with different personalities..

    T.I. — I think is the commerical one
    T.I.P (his alter ego) — Is the gangsta One

  • R3

    So please stay off the T.I.P. of my dick. TI has nothing and was owned by ludacris. TI is not the king just because he says he is. plus there is a new person on the scene that goes by the name of rick ross. i dont see TI reppin the south no more after luda put him on the spot
