"Freeway" Rick Ross
    Nick Cannon might not have been old enough to drink milk alone when convicted drug kingpin "Freeway" Rick Ross was at his height, but now he will be able to see what is like to be a major dealer in a new film. The charismatic comedian/rapper/actor/host will depict the street legend in the "real Rick Ross" upcoming biopic, as well as being installed as Executive Producer of the movie.

    While on the surface some may believe Nick Cannon seems like an odd choice to play a drug lord, the man born Ricky Donnell Ross believes it was perfect. "I chose Nick based on a few factors. The role is 17-25 in age, many of our award-winning actors are much older than that range. Nick is a guy who captures my character when I was in custody in San Diego."
