Damn, Comm is really putting in work this year. He's just coming off Street Kings (which unfortunately he had a small role in), he'll be seen later this Summer in A.Jolie's Wanted, and now will be in the upcoming Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins which also stars Batman himself Christian Bale. The film is set to release May of 2009.

The story centers on John Connor (Bale), now in his 30s, who leads what is left of the human race in a battle against the machines. Common will play a freedom fighter and member of Connor's inner circle.

At the rate Comm is going, he can become a big player in the next few years.

    I wrote about Common being in Terminator 4 over at Highbrid Nation and I was interested in seeing what others had to say on the matter. All I have to say is that Common must have a heck of an agent because he's constantly getting good roles though he doesn't appear to be that great of an actor. I've also already convinced myself that T4 will be a very different beast than the Terminator movies I grew up on. They are including rappers in the cast and have anounced PG-13 rating. Even as a hip hop blogger I have to say "no thanks". Give me the blood and gore and keep the kiddies out.

    Nah I feel you. Terminator has to get an R Rating.
    Hollywood likes to candy coat shit a lot and doing that to a series like Terminator just ridicules it.

    But I'm glad for Common...and yea, Comm must have a hell of an agent (or agency).
