Kid Cudi continues to expand his Hollywood resume. The rapper turned actor has been announced as the latest cast member to join John Woo’s upcoming action-thriller Silent Night. Deadline reported the Cleveland native is set to star alongside Joel Kinnaman, Harold Torres, and Catalina Sandino Moreno.
“Based on what we’ve seen from set so far, it’s clear that Scott has a presence and gravitas that is incredibly captivating,” said executive producer Joe Gatta according to the outlet. “He is a powerful addition, and perfect complement, to this stellar cast.”
The film is described as sharing the story of a father on a mission to avenge his young son who was tragically caught in the crossfire of gang violence on Christmas Eve. The father is portrayed by Kinnaman while the “Pursuit Of Happiness (Nightmare)” rapper will play a detective named Dennis Vassel.
