Xzibit Lands Role on FOX Medical Drama Pilot

The rapper-actor will star in a pilot based on the memoir "Weekends at Bellevue."

Xzibit, the rapper turned actor and television host, has secured a new role on an upcoming medical drama pilot on FOX.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Xzibit will star in a project being developed by Universal Media Studios and BermanBraun.

In recent months the platinum-selling rapper's tax troubles came to light, and he complained that they were the result of a lack of work.

The pilot is based on the memoir Weekends at Bellevue, written by Dr. Julie Holland, and was originally tapped by NBC.
