Rapper Big Boi takes aim at more TV, film projects

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Big Boi never took an acting class, but he's still finding ways to land roles.

The rapper has starred in several films including "ATL" and "Who's Your Caddy," and he's looking to put more attention on television and film projects. The Atlanta-based rapper has already landed a recurring role on "The Quad" and is in the process of filming his part for "Super Fly," a remake of the 1970s cult classic.

On "The Quad," which airs Tuesday on BET at 10 p.m. EDT, Big Boi plays the highly-opinionated father of a new top recruit.

The rapper is also producing a couple of animated projects called "Hotlanta Waxx" and "Sherlock Homies."
