Jack Harlow landed another film role before his first film, white men can’t jump, was even published. According Deadline, the Louisville rapper-turned-actor will appear in Apple’s original movie “The Instigators” alongside Matt Damon and Casey Affleck. The film, written by Affleck with Chuck MacLean and directed by Doug Liman, will also feature a lineup of killer cinematic talent, including Alfred Molina, Hong Chau, Michael Stuhlbarg, Paul Walter Hauser, Ron Perlman and Ving Rhames. The plot will follow a pair of thieves on the run after a failed robbery (those Afflecks love their heist movies, huh?).
Harlow may be relatively new to acting, but he’s pulled off some great looks so far. He has also shown an ability to activate the charm in smaller doses; he played commercials for Doritos and New Balance, as well as a few fun spots during his time as Saturday Night Live host. Jack and Bowen Yang drew stellar reviews in their lopsided “Bartenders” skit, so provided his upcoming roles don’t require a lot of heavy acting, the on-screen rookie should do just fine.
We’ll find out just how good he is – as an actor and at basketball – when white men can’t jump hits Hulu on May 19.
