When we interviewed Method Man for his iconic ESSENCE cover last March, he told us about his hopes of starring in an action flick. Lamenting how the film industry still doesn’t take him as seriously as it should, the NAACP Image Award-nominated actor said, “I’ve done the training; I’ve done the fitness; give me my Michael B. Jordan in Creed moment.”
Well, that moment has come, Method Man revealed to us on the Grammy red carpet Sunday night. “I’m in a movie with Kerry Washington and Omar Sy and Da’Vine Joy. She’s dope. She’s fire. It’s tentatively titled Shadowforce, done by the people that did Smoking Aces, and Kerry’s kicking ass, Omar’s kicking ass, Da’Vine is kicking my ass. It’s dope.”
Reminding him that he shared his ambitions of being an action star with us in our cover story, Method Man, who currently appears on Power Book II: Ghost, added of his desire for this type of role, “I want to show off this body.”
