More Conversation with . . . Common

27 06 2008

From the rap world to the film world, many talented artists have that transition but there are only a few who have instant credibility and respect from their acting peers and Common happens to be the latest to get that honor.

After making a blazing entrance in the film world with small but juicy role in “Smokin’ Aces,” he’s already racked up a few more films that has had him featured opposite big Oscar winners from Forest Whitaker (“Street Kings“), Denzel Washington (“American Gangster“) and now Morgan Freeman.

In his latest film, “Wanted,” Common plays a member of a group of assassins who are out to capture the guy who’s trying to kill them all. Based upon Mark Millar’s explosive graphic novel series and helmed by the stunning visualist director Timur Bekmambetov, creator of the most successful Russian film franchise in history, the “Night Watch” series, “Wanted” tells the story of one invisible drone’s transformation into a dark avenger. In 2008, the world will be introduced to a superhero for a new millennium: Wesley Gibson. ‘Wanted’ also stars Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman and James McAvoy.

Common talks about his latest role, working with guns in films, and his upcoming album.
