Lil Wayne will make his debut on the small screen next week in Fox’s new series, Grandfathered. Will acting be the rapper’s new thing?
Weezy will not be a series regular, but will appear alongside the show’s star John Stamons, Deion Sanders and Don Rickles for the big premiere. HipHollywood caught up with Stamos during the 2015 PaleyFest Fall TV preview event about Weezy’s acting chops.”He was really cool,” Stamos said. “Don’s filter is getting thinner and thinner over the years, but Wayne was a really good sport about it. He thought it was very funny.”
The show’s creator Danny Chun also explained that the three guest stars ended up being “the craziest grouping of celebrities I’ve ever been apart of. It was like the perfect storm of weirdness.”
And speaking of grouping of celebrities, it’s also worth noting that Weezy’s now ex-girlfirned, Christina Milian, is a series regular on the show. So we wonder: Did she help get him the gig?
On the program, Stamos plays a hot, single bachelor who finds out that not only is he a father, but a grandfather. “You watch the show, it’s not just about me being a grandfather. It’s me being a father and me being in a relationship and me trying to be a good guy that way.”
