Big Boi

As a member of Outkast, Big Boi honed his acting chops playing low-key hustler to Andre 3000’s cosmic boho. This musical role translated well onto the big screen when Big Boi played the ever-scrambling Rooster in the beautifully shot 2006 film Idlewild. It also served him well playing neighborhood drug kingpin Marcus in ATL the same year.
