Cee-Lo Green cast as Raekwon’s father in biopic

Cee-Lo Green the actor?

Many musicians seem to be making the leap from music to film, because if you can sing then you must be able to act too, right?  Well the latest musician hitting the silver screen is ‘The Voice’ judge, Cee-Lo Green.

The biopic ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ based on Raekwon has started casting the film and  Cee-Lo was asked to play the role of the ‘Wu Tang’ member’s father in the movie.

Rae talked about the call he made to Cee-Lo to tell him he landed the part, saying;

“When I called him and told him about it he was just overwhelmed.”

Casting for the main role of Raekwon has not been locked down yet, but it is said that Chuck Inglish of ‘The Cool Kids’ is leading the pack, but won’t be offered the part until he completes a screen test.

The script is complete and Raekwon is now in talks with studios to get some financial backing so they can go to camera.

Our question is; does anyone know if Cee-Lo can actually act?
