French Montana pull a James lebron, sort of, with his last gig – walking past the camera for an acting role… in which he’s ready to play a fictional version of himself.
The New York rapper was spotted on set on Friday at NOLA’s Hyatt Hotel, filming a new movie in the works titled “National Champions” – a college sports drama that has a star-studded cast and is slated for release. next year. because they are currently in production.
Look at these pictures of French we got … the guy is behind a piano next to a media personality, Andrew Baccalaureate (AKA King Bach), which gives it a high five as French pieces. Bachelor is also part of the film – one of the many famous faces that will be in the film, alongside people like JK Simmons, Stephan James, Timothy Olyphant and others.
As you can see, there are also a ton of crew members, all wearing masks. Production sources told TMZ that hotel guests who were nearby while the cameras were rolling were quite surprised to see French people there… and in actor mode, nothing less.
You might think it’s easy to act like yourself for a movie – but fair watch LBJ (who did this for the 2015 “Trainwreck”) … and you’ll find there’s plenty of room to flex the chops.
Anyway, if French is good here … you must be wondering if this isn’t a whole new path that he wants to explore. If so, he certainly wouldn’t be the first rapper to break into comedy … there is a long list of those who came before him, some of whom were very successful.
