Common hasn’t really been bringing in big numbers in terms of record sales, especially with his last few projects. Although, he won an Oscar so that might make up for it. But regardless, none of that has stopped him from keeping his acting career in motion. Common got his acting feet wet on television, in shows like Girlfriends and One on One. He then moved on to feature films, like Smokin’ Aces, Wanted and Date Night. In the beginning of the year he played a villain in Run All Night, and he’ll be doing that again, squaring off against Keanu Reeves in John Wick 2.
The upcoming sequel to the unexpected 2014 hit film is expected to begin production later on this week. Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the original, will be directing with a script written by Derek Kolstad, who also worked on the original. There doesn’t seem to be any info on the character Common will be playing, but expect to hear word on that soon. As far as the cast for this sequel, outside of Keanu Reeves & Common, no one else has been announced – except for Ian McShane, who will reprise his role from this original film. He played the owner of the boutique assassin hotel. What do you guys think of this casting? Sound off with your thoughts below!
