Clifford “Tip” Harris Jr. is no stranger to the world of acting. The Grammy Award-winning rapper has transitioned to “actor” over the past few years, with roles in some high profile movies like American Gangster, ATL, Takers and even appearing on the hit HBO show, Entourage.
In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine, it was revealed that the Rubberband Man could have elevated his “star” to enormous heights in 2012 had he not violated his probation with that infamous traffic stop. The run-in with the cops put Tip back in the slammer for 11 months, while he was out promoting Takers and his new album at the time, No Mercy.
“I was supposed to be in the film Tower Heist with Ben Stiller. The Eddie Murphy movie. I was supposed to be in that. And I wasn’t able, obviously, to be there. G.I. Joe II (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), they called me for that. World War Z with Brad Pitt. They called me for that. The Joel Silver movie (Bullet to the Head) – I would have been co-starring with Sylvester Stallone. They called me for that too.“
DAMN, Tip!! There’s always next year!
The “Stringer Bell for James Bond” Talk Keeps Going!
The rumors have been around for awhile, and last night at the Golden Globes, Stringer Bell himself won Best Actor for his role on Luther, and was asked about the James Bond talk that’s been going on the past year or two (Check the :40 second mark)…
“There was a huge rumour that once Daniel Craig finishes playing Bond that they were looking for someone different and my name was in that mix. And I answered a bunch and of questions and the bottom line is of course, I’d be honoured to play the part if it comes my way.”
Black Bond? BRING HIM ON!
