Joey Bada$$ detailed to Angie Martinez that he will appear as Inspectah Deck in Hulu’s upcoming series about the Wu-Tang Clan. Dave East will reportedly star as Method Man.
The forthcoming series is called Wu-Tang: An American Saga, and if we’re taking Joey’s word for it, it should be a good show.
“It’s pretty on point from what I’ve seen, like just from the scenes that I’ve been apart of,” Joey tells the radio host while visiting her Power 105.1 show. “I like what they’re doing. I like how they’re doing it.” He also says that filming a show is very different from filming a music video, stating that he has to “trust” that they take the best shot.
How did the Pro Era rapper get the role? Last month in an interview with Ssence, he stated that he had three callbacks before securing his spot on the show.
“I was in high school for screen theater, so I had some experience,” he detailed of his acting journey. He’s also been seen on the shows Boomerang and Mr. Robot. “And I always knew that if music worked out, then acting would be way easier. It’s definitely one of the passions, and maybe it could become number one. I could definitely see it becoming number one, because I want to do way more films.”
