Tip 'T.I.' Harris Will Guest on 'Hawaii Five-0'
Rapper and actor's list of credits keep growing
Tip "T.I." Harris loves being on television.
The rapper and actor is currently stealing scenes on Starz's edgy political drama "Boss" and his reality show, "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle," returns for a second season in September on VH1.
But the hip-hopper, born Clifford Harris, is just getting started. TV Line reports he'll be guest-starring on season 3 of the CBS cop-procedural "Hawaii Five-0" this fall.
His character on "Hawaii Five-0" is a crime-syndicate member who will appear in a series of flashbacks from Danny's (Scott Caan) days as a police detective in New Jersey. The episode airs in October and also includes guest stars Terrance Howard and Kendall Jenner.
While Harris said he is enjoying his foray into acting, the Atlanta native's reality show is closer to his heart.
"It's very special because I get to share it with my family," Harris, 31, told MSN TV, about "T.I. & Tiny," which features him, his wife and their three kids. "They enjoy it so much."
Prior to taking the role as Trey Rogers on "Boss," Harris said he hadn't considered scripted television but the drama was too juicy to pass up.
"The storyline and the arc were so compelling I had to make an exception," Harris said. "The cast was impressive. The whole show is impressive."
"Boss" airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Starz. "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle" kicks off a second season Monday, Sept. 3, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1. And season 3 of "Hawaii Five-0" returns, Monday, Sept. 24, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
