Rhames Thought Twice About Acting With Andre 3000
The HEY YA! hitmaker, who appears in the upcoming movie alongside his Outkast bandmate ANTWON 'BIG BOI' PATTON, says, "We wanted Ving Rhames in the movie, and the only way he'd do it was if he could get on the phone with me first.
"He says, 'I need to know: Are you serious about this? Because I've worked with rappers who come in and get high and blubber through lines, and I'm not going to let you waste my time.'
"I told him, 'I don't do dope, I take acting seriously, and I want to be great.'
"He's the only (actor) to confront me like that. I appreciated it, in a way. It beats people whispering."
