Common Joins The SUICIDE SQUAD


Oscar-winning rapper-turned-actor Common has closed a deal to join the cast of Suicide Squad, Warner Bros.' all-star action movie featuring DC Entertainment super-villains.

David Ayer is directing the feature, which already boasts actors Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Also in the lineup are Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Scott Eastwood.

There will also possibly be cameos of Jesse Eisenberg who plays Lex Luthor and Ben Affleck as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, who are rumored to appear as Warners builds its own cinematic universe.

The story tells of imprisoned villains recruited by a government agency to perform covert operations. Details for Common’s role have not been revealed.

Warners had no comment on the deal. The movie is in production in Toronto.

Common is currently on screen with Warners’ Liam Neeson thriller Run All Night and was part of the cast for acclaimed civil rights movie Selma. For the latter he won an Oscar for best original song, which he shared with John Legend. He is due to shoot Relativity's Hunter Killer with Gerard Butler in July.
