Method Man is having another TV moment
Roughneck rapper. Sitcom star. Pretty pimp. Congenial game show host.
If career hopscotch were a sport, Method Man would be its world champion.
The performer, who rose to fame as a member of ’90s New York rap collective the Wu-Tang Clan, has played gangsters, stoners and gangster/stoners in feature films, starred in his own wacky Fox sitcom “Method & Red” and been one of the few fortunate actors to land recurring roles in three critically lauded HBO series, including “Oz” and “The Wire.”
Over the next few weeks alone, Method Man (given name, Clifford Smith) will wrap up his first season as “the pretty pimp” Rodney on David Simon and George Pelicano’s HBO series “The Deuce,” debut as host of TBS’ new competition “Drop the Mic,” and drop a new album with his old crew, the Wu-Tang Clan.
