Common continues to add more film credits to his resume, and the newest project is placing him inside a school.

The 45-year-old is set to star in A Happening of Monumental Proportions alongside Katie Holmes, Allison Janney, and newcomer, Storm Reid. It will be the directorial debut for actress Judy Greer.

As reported by Indie Wire, taking place over the course of one fateful Career Day, an unassuming elementary school is thrown into turmoil when a dead body is discovered.

As the bumbling administrators attempt to hide the corpse, Daniel Crawford (Common) finds himself in the middle of all of it when, after being unceremoniously fired, he heads to his daughter’s school to speak about a job he no longer has.

In the clip Common is seen going over his resume as an accountant manager that shows little initiative to lead projects. For the role he shaved that beard that we love, but is still a sight for sore eyes with a fresh face.

In addition to his 2016 album Black America Again, the star has seven film and TV projects he's been in this year.
