Rapper Bow Wow is joining the cast of television’s ‘Entourage’ for it’s fifth season, and intends to shift his career into acting in an effort to become "the next Will Smith."
Bow Wow, born Shad Moss, will play a new client of Eric (Kevin Connolly), a stand-up comic named Charlie.
"After 16 years in the music industry and six successful albums, I’ve decided to shift my energy to something else I’m passionate about – acting," Moss explained to Reuters.
"I’m going to try to be the next Will Smith."
However, the budding actor is not throwing away his musical roots just yet, and plans to return to the studio later this year to record his new album, ‘H.I.M (History In Making)’.
