Rapper T.I. Being Courted For A Marvel Film?

At SXSW, rapper T.I. whose acting credits include ATL, American Gangster and Takers revealed that Marvel's been knocking at his door. But for what role?


At the recently wrapped SXSW Festival, rapper T.I. [real name Clifford Joseph Harris] teased a number of acting projects that he is currently in talks for including a Marvel film. Said the rapper, “I will not let any cats out of any bags prematurely,” while relaxing speaking to Forbes on his tour bus. “[But] there is a Marvel Comics franchise that has been inquiring about my availability for quite some time." Skip to the 03:10 mark in the video below to hear T.I.'s words for yourself.

At this point, your guess is as good as mine about what role Marvel could be pursuing the rapper to play. It could be an established character or someone entirely original. The actor typically doesn't stray too far from his laid-back, suave, hip-hop persona when selecting movie roles so it would have to be a Marvel character similar to that description. Obviously, the character that immediately comes to mind is Luke Cage, but equally obviously is the fact that T.I. is way too small to play Cage.

If you have a good guess as to which character T.I. could potentially be in talks for sound off below in the comments section.
