TI & Tiny: The Family Hustle star T.I. Harris has a new hustle these days, now that his hit reality show is off-season — and it’s a good one. The rapper is going to be flexing his acting chops with a major arc on the hit Showtime original drama House of Lies Season 3,alongside actors Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell!
According to E! Online, Tip will play the character of Lukas Frye, a big-money mogul who co-owns a clothing company with his childhood friend, Dre, played by fellow guest actor Mekhi Phifer. The two men hire Marty (Don Cheadle) to expand their impressive empire, but have very different ideas about the future of their business. Marty, unfortunately, gets stuck in the middle.
In the exclusive photo obtained by E!, we see our boy T.I. as Lukas, hitting the green with Kristen Bell’s character Jeannie… which is pretty suspicious since Jeannie, Marty’ former protégé, is no longer working with her mentor.
Does that mean T.I.’s character is doing business with the enemy? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see when T.I. makes his debut Sunday, February 9!
House of Lies airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on Showtime. Are you excited about T.I.’s new TV role? Tell us what you think in the comments below!
