Common's extensive resume includes his work as a celebrated rapper, actor and activist -- and soon, the multi-hyphenate will extend his reach to a whole new territory: comic books.
The rapper has teamed up to produce a new digital comic book series titled Caster, with LINE Webtoon, a digital comic book platform. Caster centers on a rare antiques dealer who heads down a destructive path and ultimately finds himself caught up in international espionage. Common will not only serve as the titular subject, but will also provide an exclusive soundtrack for the series.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly about Caster, Common revealed a few tidbits about his character's background. "The dude is fashion-forward and cool, but he’s in a world of antiques," Common told EW. "Then the depth of him is, his father was a hustler/gambler. He has that same knack, but he’s really about art and humanity."
