Mos Def is Bobby Zero

He’s done the acting and soundtrack stuff, and now Italian Job funny bloke Mos Def is aiming to add a producing credit to his resume.

He’s executive producing his next starring role, in the drama Bobby Zero. It sees the title character – a down-on-his-luck satirist who shoves his artistic style side away to get a proper paying job at an advertising agency.

Alfre Woodard has also joined the cast for the movie, which will start shooting in August with director Caran Hartsfield behind the megaphone.
