Wow! He's really taking the acting thing seriously, no?!
Vanilla Ice is on his way back into the limelight, as we reported that the former rapper was would be getting involved in a pantomime production of Peter Pan next December, and now, we've gotten word that he's been cast in the upcoming Adam Sandler comedy, I Hate You, Dad!
The flick will focus on Sandler, who moves in with his son (Andy Samberg) and future daughter-in-law (Leighton Meester), only to immediately start butting heads with her!
Ice will surprisingly not be playing himself, but instead, the substantial supporting role of Antonio, a gay wedding coordinator from Long Island!
Meanwhile, James Caan is in talks to play Leighton's actual father!
Holy shiz! Pretty impressive cast!
Sounds as though it has a lot of potential - if they don't eff it up!
Here's hoping Ice can hold his own! He may not have much experience, but if he pulls it off, we have a feeling he may have quite the lucrative acting career in front of him!
Best of luck!
