Another rapper slash actor, David Banner, recently talked about his upcoming movie role and how hard it is. After his break-out role in 2007's "Black Snake Moan," Banner recently landed a role in the upcoming thriller "The Confidant," set to start filming on the 13th in L.A.
Banner will play Jackson, a painter who takes the fall for a murder his friend Nigel (who is an NFL draft pick) committed. "When a person has gone through what my character has gone through, it’s a mental jousting because it goes back and forth between so many emotions,” Banner said of the role.
Banner says that he is fully dedicated to acting stating "After I did Black Snake Moan with Samuel L. Jackson, I just caught the bug," he says. "Instead of buying jewelry and others things I could’ve spent my money on, I was flying out every week to L.A., going to acting classes because it was something that I knew I wanted to do."
