Rap star Coolio is to play a lead role in forthcoming feature film 'Retirement'.
The comedy centres around four grumpy old men who head out on a road trip to stop one of their daughters from marrying the wrong guy. Coolio will be in familiar territory, playing the part of rapper Flow.
The 41-year-old has become increasingly involved in acting in the last four years, acting in over 21 features. His most notable roles are for 'Daredevil', 'Batman and Robin' and 'Judgement Day'.
