Rapper-turned-actor (raptor) T.I. has signed up to play a bounty hunter in a Universal Pictures action/comedy titled Identity Thief.
T.I. joins stars Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, as a man (Bateman) and the woman (McCarthy) who steals his identity, and they become unlikely companions.
As a bounty hunter, T.I.’s character hunts them both, to collect his bounty.
The film's cast also includes Morris Chestnut, Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, John Cho and others.
Call me a *hater* or whatever, and far be it for me to squash anyone's dream, but, I'm sorry, T.I. has absolutely no business acting, based on the work I've seen him do thus far. And yet he continues to get work, so egg on my face I guess.
