I’ll admit, we are a few months late (give or take), but when we caught this trailer, we just had to share. If you’re a fan of seeing 40-year-old rapper Common (real name Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr.) on the big screen, you’ll be intrigued (to say the least). His latest film, LUV, is Common’s first as a producer.
Starring Danny Glover, Charles S. Dutton, Dennis Haysbert and Michael K. Williams, the Sundance Film Festival drama is about an ex-con who leaves prison and strives to mentor his troubled nephew upon release. The film represents a lot of firsts for Common: It’s his first starring role and it’s the first movie he’s ever acted in and produced to appear at Sundance. Peep the trailer below.
