Tyga Nabs a Role in ‘Scream’ Series Reboot Alongside CJ Wallace
MTV recently announced a soft reboot for Scream’s Season 3, and it looks like they’ve found a new leading man in Tyga!
The rapper is taking his acting career to the next level with a starring role in the teen series.
Read on to find out who Kylie’s ex will play in the horror reboot.
Tyga has a bevy of IMDb credits to his name, but the majority of his work has focused on soundtrack contributions.
All that is about to change, though.
In 2015, the rapper made his feature film debut in the small role of De’Andre in Dope.
But now he’s ready to take center stage.
In May, casting calls announced MTV’s search for actors to fill five new roles in Season 3.
Two male leads and three female roles were up for grabs.
But not anymore…
Jamal is new main character Deion's fiercely loyal step-brother with a heart of gold.
The Kardashians are def going to be watching this one…
Alongside Tyga, C.J. Wallace has been cast in a previously unknown role.
The Notorious B.I.G.’s son will play good kid Amir, who is expected to live up to his strict parents’ high standards.
But floundering ratings and a cast of up-and-comers with multiple side projects prompted MTV execs to start over entirely.
MTV kicked things off by bringing in a surprising new showrunner. Queen Latifah was tapped to produce the overhauled series.
We’re excited to see the results of these three legends working together.
Scream returns to MTV March 2018.
