Looks like Jack Harlow jumped and scored a role as he is tapped in a leading role for the White Men Can’t Jump reboot, taking on the role of Billy Hoyle who was played by Woody Harrelson in the 1992 original Deadline reports.
When it came to auditioning, this was the “What’s Poppin” rapper’s first-ever screen audition which impressed not only the film execs but Kenya Barris as well, who is tapped to write the script. The rising artist will star alongside Rosie Perez and Wesley Snipes, who are set to reprise their roles from the original.
The film’s storyline remains the same, which will follow two street basketball hustlers who at first try to hustle each other, then team up for a bigger score.
Are you excited to see Harlow in the reboot?
