Jack Harlow‘s acting career is poppin’ — the rap star just reportedly landed the lead role in the “White Men Can’t Jump” reboot … after his FIRST EVER audition.
The “Nail Tech” MC will play Billy Hoyle, which was Woody Harrelson‘s role in the original film back in 1992, according to Deadline.
23-year-old Harlow — who has zero acting experience — apparently wowed producers from the jump … helping pave the way to his first on-screen gig.
Of course, the OG flick starred Harrelson and Wesley Snipes — which followed the story of two on-court rivals who team up to start hustling people on the court.
Harlow is known to be a pretty solid hooper in real life — he’s been in numerous celebrity basketball games over the years … most recently, the NBA Celeb Game during All-Star Weekend in Cleveland, where he showed off his range with multiple 4-point plays.
The reboot is produced by Kenya Barris and his Khalabo Ink Society banner … and executive produced by NBA star Blake Griffin, NFLer Ryan Kalil and Noah Weinstein of Mortal Media.
The project was first announced in 2017 … and a release date has not been revealed at this time.
