Common continues his reign!

Oscar-winning rapper Common has closed a deal to join the cast of Warner Bros.’ highly-anticipated action flick, Suicide Squad.

Here’s the scoop via the Hollywood Reporter:

David Ayer is directing the feature, which already boasts actors Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Also in the lineup are Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Viola David, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Scott Eastwood.

There will also possibly be cameos of Jesse Eisenberg who plays Lex Luthor and Ben Affleck as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, who are rumored to appear as Warners builds its own cinematic universe.

The story tells of imprisoned villains recruited by a government agency to perform covert operations.

Common’s role and the details of his deal have not been disclosed, but he’s still winning and I’m very happy for him!

Suicide Squad is slated to hit theaters on August 5, 2016.

I definitely plan to check it out.
