Lena Waithe will launch a new comedy called “Twenties” for BET in 2020.
She has cast Big Sean as one of the actors for the show. This is his acting debut.
After the two connected, Waithe thought Sean would be perfect. She told Variety, “He’s so natural. He’s so good. He’s easy on the eyes, as we all know. The ladies are going to get a kick out of watching him on screen.”
About Waithe, Sean said, “I love Lena because of her spirit and determination to win. She has an unstoppable hunger and in this industry, that’s what you need. It’s one of the qualities I see in myself. She’s amazing for giving me my first chance to act and not playing myself, but actually playing a character. It’s something I take seriously.”
What other musicians/singers/rappers do you think could become good actors?
