While Common has a lengthy film resume, Nicki is just getting started. The 32-year-old made her film debut in the animated movie Ice Age: Continental Drift and then co-starred with Cameron Diaz in The Other Woman last year.

The last Barbershop installment was released over a decade ago in 2004, with the first two grossing $140 million at the box office.
