T.I. is entering Showtime's “House of Lies.”
The musician/actor and reality star (see: “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle”) has been tapped for a multi-episode role on the upcoming third season of the Showtime series, which stars Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell.
T.I. will play Lukas, who co-owns a clothing company with his childhood friend Dre (who'll be played by “E.R.” alum Mekhi Phifer). Lukas and Dre tap Cheadle's consultant character Marty Kaan to help them build their empire.
In addition to T.I. and Phifer, the upcoming season will feature “Home Alone” star Daniel Stern, who'll play the CEO of a natural food grocery store chain.
