Chicago rapper Common has a high profile role in the upcoming movie “John Wick 2.”
The ultra violent action thriller reprises Keanu Reeves’ role as a deranged assassin at war with an Italian gangster, who wants Wick to repay past favors.
Common said filming the movie was demanding on all of the actors, most of whom performed their own stunts.
“When we were fighting, man, he [Keanu] was intense,” Common told Yahoo Movies. “It was intense and we were going at it. Not to hurt each other, but it’s like, ‘Man, I’m about to deliver.’
Common’s role in “John Wick 2” is just the first of several high-profile appearances he will make on the big screen over 2017.
The Windy City M.C. is also starring in the upcoming films “A Happening of Monumental Proportions,” “Coco,” and the movie “Megan Leavey.”
