Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Black Thought from The Roots Going to Be a Movie Star Soon?

The Roots' Black Thought is on a roll these days!

First off, he's bringing in that good, steady loot from moonlighting on the "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" show every week. His longtime Hip-Hop band, The Roots, had one of the best albums of 2011 in undun (although we think it's a sin that they never get as much credit or as many sales as they deserve).

And now, we hear through the grapevine that the Philadelphia native may be setting his sights on Hollywood??? According to our source, Black Thought is being considered for an important role in an epic, upcoming film about a super-famous, deceased Jazz musician and his wife.

Since we're not ones to gossip (LOL), we asked Black Thought about it directly, as AllHipHop.com's Seandra Sims interviewed him in a dim, backstage setting this past weekend at his GrassROOTS charity concert in Philly. Watch the clip to see what the extra-private lyricist had to say about possibly appearing on the big screen soon:
