Common To Star In Comedy Alongside Steve Carrell & Tina Fey

Once he gets past killing Skynet robots alongside Christian Bale in this summer’s Terminator Salvation, Common is slated to star in another high-profile film. Variety reports that the Chicago emcee has signed on to play a villain in the comedy, Date Night.

The all-star cast of the 20th Century Fox production includes stars Steve Carrell of The Office and Tina Fey of 30 Rock, as well as Mark Wahlberg, James Franco, and Taraji P. Henson in supporting roles. Yet to begin filming, Date Night has no official release date at press time.

For Common, in addition to conquering the big screen, his next moves will take him into the fragrance and apparel worlds. Partnering with Diesel, the rapper will appear in print and television ads promoting the new men’s fragrance, “Only The Brave,” according to Billboard. Microsoft has also tapped Common for Softwear, a line of t-shirts currently available in select stores.- Devin Chanda
