DMX has lined up his first movie since his jail release earlier this year (19) - he'll star alongside Tara Reid and Michael Madsen in a new psychological thriller.
Ironically, the rap star, who has appeared in the movies "Cradle 2 the Grave" and "Romeo Must Die," will play a detective on the hunt for Brendan Sexton's character in "Chronicle of a Serial Killer."
Director Steve Stanulis tellsThe Blast,"Casting DMX as Detective White to me is a perfect fit. As a director, I always like going against the grain a bit.
"Also, being familiar with his work over the years, I have no doubt he is going bring a different dynamic to the role. It will be fun working with him and the rest of the cast on this one!"
The film also features The Predator star, Jake Busey.
A film spokesman adds, "It’s going to be awesome seeing DMX onscreen with Tara Reid. Factor in Jake Busey, Michael Madsen and Brendan Sexton... such a dynamic group of talent."
DMX, real name Earl Simmons, was released from prison on January 25 after serving a one-year sentence for tax evasion.
