More details have finally been revealed regarding the film T.I. will be starring in opposite Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell. The Atlanta rapper will be playing Hart’s character’s cousin who is tasked with helping Ferrell get ready to serve time in a comedy called Get Hard.
Sounds like gold.
In the Gary Sanchez-produced pic, the self-professed King of the South will play Joaquin, Hart’s streetwise cousin who helps Hart prep Ferrell’s millionaire fraudster for prison. Harris has been racking up the acting credits lately. He’s currently doing a season-long guest stint on Showtime’s House Of Lies, starred in a season-long guest run on Starz’s Boss in 2012, and popped up in Universal’s Identity Thief last year. Grammy-nominated Harris made his acting debut with a starring turn in 2006′s ATL, which he followed with Ridley Scott’s American Gangster and Screen Gems’ crime thriller Takers.
In November T.I. posted a photo of himself, Ferrell and Hart together on Instagram, and later confirmed on The Arsenio Hall Show that they were working on a movie.
Yes, the title Get Hard is very pause-worthy. Stop being immature.
Get Hard is due in theaters March 27, 2015.
