Hip-hop royalty and the one and only Atlanta legend, André 3000 might have taken a step back from the music forefront, but he’s definitely been hard at work with flexing his acting chops.
Known for his lyricism and artistry as half of the pioneering OutKast, 3 Stacks is no stranger to stepping outside of the box and tapping into every facet of his many talents. Adding to his acting resume, it was announced that the celebrated rapper will soon appear in the forthcoming film ‘Showing Up.’
According to Deadline, the film, which is written by director Kelly Reichardt and her longtime writing partner Jon Raymond, tells the story of an artist who, inspired by the “chaos of life,” creates art for what turns out to be “a career-changing exhibition.” While actress Michelle Williams is slated to play the character of the artist, 3000’s role in the film has yet to be revealed.
This forthcoming appearance will add to the “Hey Ya” star’s on-screen appearances, adding to his growing list of acting roles including starring in Four Brothers and the Jimi Hendrix biopic, as well as television shows as well.
A release date for ‘Showing Up’ has yet to be confirmed but we’re definitely don’t the lookout for the project!
