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!

    Perez only likes and APPROVES of this shitty movie because a character is gay, otherwise he would just be saying, ”hope it doesn't bomb"

    If Ice can pull it off, he will likely have an amazing career as a character actor ahead of him. *fingers crossed*
