Drake talks his upcoming projects!

Drake is ready to come back into the spotlight, but this time with a more behind-the-scenes role!

It was revealed on Wednesday that the rapper is executive producing the revival of British crime series Top Boy for Netflix, which is set to debut in 2019.

He and his manager Adel "Future" Nur teamed up for the project with the musician telling The Hollywood Reporter all about the upcoming project.

Drake shared about the show, revealing how he watched it on YouTube:

"That human element drew me in. I started just looking them up. Like, who are these people? Are these actors I should know? Are they just famous over there? I remember I hit Future, and I was just like, 'This show is incredible.'"

Sadly, Top Boy ended in 2013 — but at least Drizzy is bringing it back to life with stars Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson reprising their original roles.

The 31-year-old has much more in store, as he also revealed he and Future are working with Anonymous Content's Steve Golin for an untitled TV series, A24 films, and even Apple.

Those details are vague though for legal reasons!

Drake has even set his sights on acting again. It was even revealed he was approached by Harvey Weinstein to star in The Heist, but he turned it down long ago. His manager, Future, shared:

The Harry Potter Cast That Could've Been But Never Was!

Lots of big name actors made their way to Hogwarts throughout the Harry Potter film series.

But if just a few things went differently, audiences would have been accepted to an even more star-studded school of Witchcraft and Wizardry!

Hugh Grant was originally considered to play Gilderoy Lockhart. While the Love, Actually star's toothy grin would have been perfect for the character, Grant had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts and the role ultimately went to Kenneth Branagh.

Like Grant, many other A-list Brits were considered for roles that didn't end up happening. Some actors felt they weren't good enough for the series, and others completely looked down upon the magic! (*COUGH* Tilda Swinton *COUGH*)

So while we reflect on HP's bday, meet the Harry Potter cast that almost was (below)!

Yer in yer late 30's, Harry.

Harry Potter fans take any excuse they can get to celebrate the renowned wizard. If it's not the anniversary of J.K. Rowling's books, it's some holiday within the wizarding world.

And no holiday is greater than the birthday of the Boy Who Lived! (Not to mention, the author's birthday!)

So to celebrate the protagonist turning 37, we thought it would be appropriate to take a look at what the Harry Potter cast has accomplished in their years since starring in the blockbuster series!

Surely, most of us have seen Emma Watson as Belle in Beauty and the Beast – but some fans may have missed Daniel Radcliffe playing a magical farting corpse in Swiss Army Man.

See what other popular and obscure projects the cast has taken in recent years (below)!
