    Ya'll may have heard a few days back Samuel L. Jackson dissing rappers who earn leading roles in films. Jackson thinks this is taking away from those who have received special training to act. Since his comments, some have chided him because he's been in films with rappers -- in fact, he'll be in the upcoming film "XXX" with Eve. Jackson points out that the rappers he's been in films with have not had leading roles. (Eve's, who's currently on the charts with Gangsta Lovin' featuring Alicia Keys, has a supporting role in "XXX"). So, what do ya'll think about rappers acting? Hey, what if a bunch of actors decided they would start taking rapping seriously -- do you think the rappers would be so kind to them?

    To a certain extent, I agree with Samuel. Too many rappers AND singers are given the unauditioned for parts over those who've been working hard at their craft. Only to have these big name rappers get the roles. That's not right.

    Then again, if they can do it better, why not? But they must audition by the same channnels as everyone else. If not, they don't deserve the part.

    i feel that we need to be fair as much as possible

    yet when it comes down to actors competing for

    different roles how fair are we as individuals? :confused:

    KEBAH like you never snubbed your competition before :lol:
