Any form of legitimate acting takes significant time and effort. One might say it distracts from other areas of creative expression. Such is the case with André 3000, who, save for a smattering of rumors, some features, and a festival-dominating reunion tour, has steered his focus toward cinema.

12 Years a Slave writer John Ridley, the executive producer of ABC’s Emmy-nominated American Crime and the director of the 3000-starring Hendrix biopic, recently announced the Atlanta artist would assume a major role in the TV series’ sophomore season, which is set to air in the coming months.
