Any time we see Drake in a Hollywood-ish setting, like during his plane-delayed performance at Sundance last weekend, some of us still have a tiny uncool voice in our head saying, “That kid from Degrassi sure is talented.” And so, of course, VH1 News asked the Take Care rapper when he’s finally going to return to his thespian roots.
“I’ve been reading scripts for a while,” he said. “I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I’m actually writing with my friends right now, [Maz Elsadig and Al Mukadam]. They have a production company called By Any Means Necessary, so we’re writing together trying to figure out the right movie.”
BAMN have been doing their part to showcase Drake’s acting skills, creating theatrical videos for him, like “Marvin’s Room.” As for what constitutes his ideal comeback role, Drake was quick to answer: “Something that’s not a rapper or a basketball player, which is all the scripts that I get.”
