So what do you think his debut role would be? Trash-talking, street savvy cop who gets a crash course in drunken monk style as sidekick to Jet Li? Charming drug lord who must reluctantly join forces with Ethan Hawke to fight the real enemy (whoever that happens to be)? Local layabout who redeems himself by organizing a rag tag team of young miscreants, turning them into a crackerjack little league/Pop Warner football squad? Think outside the box office, people! For his silver screen jumpoff TI will be playing (David Banner drumroll...) A ROLLER SKATER. Landing the role of "Rashad", TI will star in veteran music video director Chris Robinson's first feature film. Formerly titled Jellybeans, the flick is based on a story by Dallas Austin and T-Boz, and will be a musical comedy set around a roller rink (do we detect a trend?) Rappers give themselves whiplash trying to prove just how treally trill they keep it in the trap, etc. TI is proving that real gangsters can also lace em up and blissfully glide around the rink to Kool & The Gang.
