Well you’re wrong, because the colourful chart-topper is dipping his toe into the murky waters of acting, starring alongside Mark Wahlberg and Winston Duke in action-comedy Spenser Confidential.
And from the above trailer, it’s quite clear that ol’ Posty features fairly prominently.
He’s in the opening sequence starting a fight with Mark Wahlberg’s character while he’s still in prison, meaning we get to see some inter-generational rap beef play out on screen.
(For anyone that doesn’t know, YouTube ‘Marky Mark’.)
A synopsis of the film reads: “Spenser (MArk Wahlberg) – an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it – just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur.
“That’s Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he’ll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser’s former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice.
“From director Peter Berg, Spenser Confidential is an action-comedy co-starring Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron and Post Malone. Inspired by Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.”
It comes after a landmark year for Post, who’s album Hollywood’s Bleeding debuted atop the US Billboard 200 chart.
Still, it didn’t save him from having a certified NYE nightmare, when part way through his performance at Dick Clark’s annual New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square, he decked it and fell off stage in front of a live audience and millions of people around the world.
Security and Post’s entourage were quick to help him up as he attempted to laugh off the embarrassment as he nonchalantly beamed for the cameras.
He took it like a champ to be fair.
Anyway, the film is directed by Peter Berg, who has previously worked with Wahlberg on Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day, and Mile 22; so if you’re a fan of those films you’ll likely be excited by his latest project.
Spenser Confidential premieres on Netflix on March 6th.
