Spending nearly a year in jail really took a toll on T.I.’s life, both personally and professionally. However, according to the rapper, offers to star in some pretty high profile movies came rolling in just about the time he was getting carted off in orange. So, he had to turn them all down.
But just wait till you hear the opportunities he missed out on! He says:
“I was supposed to be in the film Tower Heist with Ben Stiller. The Eddie Murphy movie. I was supposed to be in that. And I wasn’t able, obviously, to be there. G.I. Joe II (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), they called me for that. World War Z with Brad Pitt. They called me for that. The Joel Silver movie (Bullet to the Head) – I would have been co-starring with Sylvester Stallone. They called me for that too.”
Damn! T.I was getting all the roles! He’s out now, so I’m sure we will see him somewhere other than ‘The Family Hustle.’ All the movies he named-do you think Tower Heist would have been better with him or without him?
