Ice Cube excited to star in ‘Rampart’ with Ben Foster

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Ice Cube is eagerly anticipating unsheathing his edge as an actor later this summer, when he goes before the cameras with Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster in “Rampart” – Oren Moverman’s adaptation of James Ellroy’s novel about L.A.P.D. corruption in the early ‘90s.

“I’ve been looking for these kinds of roles,” says the multi-talented rap star, producer, director, writer and cuddly “Are We There Yet” movie lead. “I’ve been doing comedies and family kind of deals lately, and I’ve been looking for dramas. As an actor, I’m really looking forward to being part of a heavy story.”

Heavy it will be. What makes it all the more interesting is the fact Cube will be playing a homicide detective who is on the trail of a dirty cop (Harrelson). It’s an ironic turn for a guy who rose to fame with gangsta rap pioneers N.W.A. and their “Straight Outta Compton” first album that contained such cuts as “F— tha Police.”
