Post Malone: Spotify chart-topping rap artist, champion of Crocs, and now, actual actor. The rapper is setting his sights on the streaming screen, following his acting debut in the upcoming Netflix film, “Spenser Confidential.”
Starring alongside Mark Wahlberg and Winston Duke, Post Malone’s first acting credit involves a dose of action, mystery, and a “twisted murder conspiracy.” The film is an adaptation of Ace Atkin’s 2013 novel “Wonderland,” which follows Spenser, an ex-cop fresh out of prison. His route towards peaceful civilization hits a snag, when two of his ex-colleagues are found dead and presumably murdered.
Post Malone plays an inmate who maintains communication with Spenser despite the ex-cop’s bailout. Spenser is played by Mark Wahlberg, while Winston Duke portrays Spenser’s newest boxing partner. The rest of the “Spenser Confidential” cast includes action veteran Colleen Camp of “Die Hard” and “Fargo’s” Bokeem Woodbine.
The film is slated for release on Mar. 6. In the meantime, check out a snippet of Post Malone’s acting chops in the trailer below:
