T.I. joins the cast of Ant-Man

08.20.2014

Production started on Peyton Reed's Ant-Man earlier this week and Marvel was quick to get us a picture of our thief-turned-hero Scott Lang (played by the lovable Paul Rudd). Recently added to the cast is T.I. In regards to what part he may be playing, that's up in the air, but given his usually smaller roles in ensemble casts . . . I'm willing to bet it'll be a smaller role among this ensemble cast.

T.I. has mostly contributed his vocal stylings to various films (almost any dance flick you can think of), but earned himself acting roles on ATL and Ridley Scott's AMERICAN GANGSTERS early on in his career. Hey, if he's good enough for Ridley, he's good enough for me! No word yet on whether or not Sam Jackson will recruit him for the Avengers.

ANT-MAN aims to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.

c'mon give TIP a break.

ATL is actually a solid movie. TI's not that bad, and depending on the role it can work.

i mean, he's playing a supporting character in Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd. it's not like he has to be the best actor in the world here.

Scott Lang starts as a criminal, I'm guess he might know other criminals?

Even though your reciting lyrics, you drop the "N" word. Regardless of how you use it. There are people on this site who may not take kindly to it. Im black and I dont even use the word, I try to set a good example for my 12 yr old daughter, and thats something else you may consider too - that there are young people on this site. Those could be some reasons why your down voted, I cant say for sure. But I do know that I had to take a double take when I saw your comment before I realized you

I don't listen to T.I. Im more old school.

Not a fan of this choice, but

I still have faith in Marvel. Feige is well aware of the crap this movie is getting. I doubt he'd let them cast T.I. if he thought it would be a bad idea. Definitely makes me feel a little uneasy though. Also not a fan of Judy Greer who was recently cast.

Literally exactly what I (and probably most Marvel fans) am thinking.

I hope he's the one paying to be in this movie, and no one's paying him. That would make more sense.

I would have preferred Common

Now there's a rapper who can act. That said, I did enjoy ATL for what it was and thought Tip Harris was pretty solid even though the film was supposedly inspired by his own life. I can get behind this risky casting decision.

Thought this was a joke, but apparently not. What the hell. Hollywood, there are a lot more better actors out there to choose from.

So who would you choose? Given the fact that you don't even know what his role is.

In the rapper-turned-actor stakes, at least it's not RZA joining the cast.

There was actually a rumour that RZA would direct and star in Black Panther, circa 2012.
