Philadelphia rapstress Eve recently discussed her desire to get back into film acting and why Inglorious Bastards director Quentin Tarantino is at the top of her list of directors to work with.
Admitting her first priority involves completing her upcoming solo album, Eve said she is still searching for the perfect role.
“I haven’t read any scripts, I don’t want to, I want to finish this record – that’s like my top priority. I’ve read some stuff but nothing that has really grabbed me at all. My dream, dream, dream would to be directed by Quentin Tarantino. I want to kick somebody’s a** or shoot somebody.” (Necole Bitchie)
Academy Award-winning rapper-turned-actor Eminem recently spoke on waiting for the right script to find him.
“There are some things in the [works], a couple of scripts,” Eminem answered. “I guess it’s more so of just waiting now to see how they come together. Obviously it’s gotta be something that I feel is dope enough to make me want to say, ‘OK, let me put the mic down for a second and go do this movie.’ There are some things that are in the works. I guess we’ll just see how they come together.” (RapFix)
Last year, Young Money’s Nicki Minaj said her dream role would be in a Tim Burton film.
“I’d like to play someone in a Tim Burton movie, where I get dressed up and painted and crazy,” Minaj reveals within her cover feature interview. “Then I want to be able to do some action stuff, like Angelina Jolie…And then I’d like to just play a regular girl who, you know, is facing the world. Something really sentimental and organic, that girls all around the world can identify with. You know, how Jada Pinkett Smith did in Jason’s Lyric.” (KING)
The LOX’s Jadakiss recently discussed his intent to make a name for himself as an actor.
“I want to do more acting and I want to do voiceovers, too. I want to get in some of these animated joints; that’s where the money’s at. I think I got the voice. I know I can do it. I can be one of these squirrels… one of these birds, or dolphins or something, or pandas or monkeys, or seals [Laughs].” (VIBE)
