Jack Harlow is ready to make his acting debut! The Atlantic Records rapper has scored huge hits with “Industry Baby” and “What’s Poppin’, and now he’s set to appear in a reboot of White Men Can’t Jump.
Harlow will play a version of the role originally played by Woody Harrelson. In the 1992 original, Harrelson stared alongside Wesley Snipes. In the movie, the basketball players tried to outplay each other, but ultimately decided to team up. No mention yet of who will play Harlow’s co-star.
According to Deadline, he blew everyone out of the water with his audition:
“…the circumstances behind his landing the starring role are exceptional. He got the lead after his first-ever screen audition, immediately winning over the filmmakers and execs, particularly Barris. Harlow’s got game too, as evidenced by his play during the recent NBA All-Star Weekend’s Celebrity Game. The filmmakers now are looking to set his costar as the movie is on a fast track.”
