Common Takes On Role As Slave
The rapper to star in 'Hell On Wheels'
Rapper turned actor Common has finally confirmed rumours that he will be playing a slave in the upcoming TV series, Hell On Wheels.
The conscious rap star believes that the show's writing and overall concept were determining factors for him in choosing the role.
He told Beats Boxing And Mayhem:
"The writing of the show was such quality and the character had so much depth to it. This is one of the best characters I've come across regarding reading any script in my life.
"To play a freed slave to represent that time was a challenge to me as an actor.
“Whether it's TV or not I just want to be a part of quality things. And being on AMC the season doesn't last as long so I'll still be able to do films and tour. That made it even a better situation."
