Before fans get too excited … this bit of news has nothing to do with music or his group Outkast.

The Shield, Be Cool, Revolver, Semi Pro, Four Brothers, Idlewild, Battle in Seattle, and the live-action movie adaptation of *Charlotte’s Web. *

He also played opposite Regina King in the ABC series American Crime. In many of the roles that featured him, he received critical acclaim.
A true artist, one of the last time fans saw Dré, he was playing his flute in the airport.
We look forward to seeing what he brings to this new project.
