The new film titled Identity Theft will have the rapper play a bounty hunter, which seems like an interesting role.

Let’s see if that comes together as we heard.
Here is the article;
Rapper-turned-actor T.I. will play a bounty hunter in Identity Theft, the Universal Pictures comedy that stars Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy. T.I.’s character hunts both of them, as Bateman’s character becomes an unlikely companion for McCarthy’s character after she steals his identity. T.I. is co-starring in Kelsey Grammer’s series Boss for Starz, as well as the second season of his own VH1 series Family Hustle. On the big screen, he most recently starred in and produced Screen Gems’ Takers. He recently signed with WME and remains repped by Category 5.
