During his breaks from dominating the charts and the stage, Drake has been putting a lot of thought into his next move: acting. The Canadian MC who was well known for portraying Jimmy in the teen series Degrassi: The Next Generation, said in a recent interview with W magazine that he’s super excited to get back in front of the camera.
“I can’t wait to get back into acting,” he said. “No one ever asks me to do movies, and, although music is my focal point now, I’d love to do a film.”
When asked why he ended up leaving Degrassi, a hit show with a cult-following, he said it was a matter of choice: “Eventually, they realized I was juggling two professions and told me I had to choose,” he said. “I chose this life.”
It’s pretty hard to believe that no one asks Drake to do movies, since he has a pretty impressive background in the craft. Needless to say, we’re sure it will be no time until Drizzy gets cast in an upcoming blockbuster.
