I’m happy for Tip. He has been cast to star in the ‘Roots’ remake. I think he will do a good Job on this. I predict that he will win an Oscar next year.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tip will play Cyrus, a headstrong slave who fights for his freedom for the Union Army against Confederate forces.
He joins previously announced cast members Forest Whitaker, Anna Paquin, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Laurence Fishburne, Anika Noni Rose, Chad L. Coleman, Erica Tazel, and Derek Luke.
The rapper-actor will star alongside Mekhi Phifer, James Purefoy, Matthew Goode, Lane Garrison, Emayatzy Corinealdi, and G. Hannelius in the four-night, eight-hour miniseries event.
