“Training Day” Director Says Lil Wayne Should Go Into Acting [EXCLUSIVE]

I really liked Lil Wayne a lot, I think he’s really talented.  What I loved about him is that he was totally professional.  I would give him some direction and he’d say “I got it.”  He had an actor’s way about him– he was very serious.  He came on set and asked me what I thought.  It was similar to some of the great actors I’ve gotten to work with, that have an instinct about them.  The things he does in the video like shaking hair or gritting his teeth, you think that’s  Lil Wayne being Lil Wayne , but he’s a really cool cat.  I told him he should really look into doing some acting.

Are there any other artists you’d like to do music videos with?

I think Alicia Keys is really talented.  Frank Ocean is interesting and of course  Eminem.

You’ve been married to actress Lela Rochon for over 20 years.  As a director, do you feel that having a wife who’s also in the business makes it easier?  That they understand your workload and time constraints?

I can only speak for the two of us, but yes it helps, definitely.

What has been the key to having such a long lasting marriage in Hollywood?

I’d have to say love and commitment.  It’s a crazy business and people do crazy things.

“Olympus Has Fallen” opens nationwide March 22nd.

One thought on ““Training Day” Director Says Lil Wayne Should Go Into Acting [EXCLUSIVE]

  1. I occasionally write comments, however, I read
    through a great deal of opinions here on Antoine Fuqua Says Lil
    Wayne Should Go Into Acting | Black America Web but
    had a couple of thoughts for you if you wouldn’t mind. Is this just me or do some of these remarks seem to be as if they’re coming
    from really dumb folks? And, if you are composing on some different sites, I
    wish to stay in touch with you. Would you put up a listing of all of your social
    network pages such as your linkedin account, Facebook site
    or twitter feed?
