Common

After his appearance in the quirky mob flick Smokin’ Aces in 2006, alternative rapper Common has been on the fast-track to carving out his space as an actor. His role as Turner Lucas in 2007’s American Gangster made critics take notice, leading to his starring role, along side Queen Latifah, in the 2010 romantic comedy Just Wright.
