Deadline reports T.I. has been cast alongside Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy in the UNIVERSAL comedy Identity Theft.  The rapper-turned-actor will play a bounty hunter who gets to track down his co-stars after McCarthy steals Bateman’s identity.  The film is slated for a May 2013 release.

T.I. has been revamping his career by adding to his acting resume.  He will star opposite Tom Cruise in an upcoming film titled We Mortals Are.  The sci-fi war film will tell the story of a solder in a futuristic war who finds himself sporadically reliving the last day before his death.

Kelsey Grammer also signed T.I. to co-star on the 2nd season of his Starz network show Boss.  T.I. will have a season-long arc as a former gangbanger with an eye on a political career.

Let’s not forget, T.I. and his wife Tiny also star in their VH1 reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle; which was picked up for its second season.

Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris is one busy man!
