Common To Play Villain In ‘John Wick 2’

Although he might not be as successful as Ice Cube, Common has done quite well for himself in the rapper-turnt-actor department.

From Wanted and Smokin’ Aces, to an appearance in American Gangster and his recurring role on Hell On Wheels, the Chicago native’s filmography continues to grow on a yearly basis – and 2015 is no different. On top of playing Tattooed Man in Suicide Squad, he also just wrapped Barbershop 3 and will take part in The Wiz Live! with Queen Latifah, Ne-Yo, and Mary J. Blige. And now, it’s being reported that he’ll be squaring off with Keanu Reeves in John Wick 2. 

Plot details are non-existent, but Common is said to portray the film’s lead villain as head of security for a female crime lord. And, if you saw the first flick, you’ll know there’s a strong chance he’ll be killed before the end credits.
