    >RZA will play a junkie music producer


    I wonder why Forest Whitaker thought of the RZA for that role. He must have heard 8 Diagrams.

    Stay off the screen, RZA!!! and get Method Man to do the same.

    We need more actors like extra holes in our heads.

    It sounds like a good movie – It sounds like the role he has, is going to be kinda brief (maybe a couple of shots)

  • jack bronson

    stop the hate , rza has come correct in all his movies , even though he is usually type-casted he is a good actor. rza , mos def , and 2pac are the rappers i can think of off the top of my head that can actaully act

    RZA the abbot is really the best out there doing his thing. any1 who wanna knock on God’s hustle is a damn fool.

    and any hater talking about how bad 8 Diagrams was when it doesnt even have to do anything with this upcoming movie, is just plain stupid! besides 8 Diagrams is the a breath of fresh air and one of the most incredible joints coming from the clan.

    RZA good looking on all these moves u making, God!
