Jack Harlow feeling “magical” about upcoming acting debut
Harlow bagged his first acting role in the upcoming remake of ‘White Men Can’t Jump.’
The 65th Annual Grammy Awards are here and rapper Jack Harlow hit the red carpet to talk fashion and hint at his upcoming acting debut in the ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ remake.
Harlow, who is nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album, looked dapper in a tan suit and black gloves while he did multiple interviews at the award show.
Speaking with E! News’ Laverne Cox, Harlow explained he chose a simple outfit he felt the most confident in for the event. “I don’t know,” he said. “I guess I just looked in the mirror and felt good about this one.”
Besides praising Harlow’s style, Cox also took the chance to bring up the fact that the ‘First Class’ singer will be appearing in the remake of the 1992 film ‘White Men Can’t Jump,’ asking Harlow how he felt about the film’s director saying the world will know him better for his acting than his music because of how talented he is.
“How does it feel to get that type of praise from your director?” Cox asked.
“It’s high praise,” Harlow said. “I’m trying to decide whether I want that to be the case or not. We’re gonna see how things flow.”
“I will say this though, when I’m on set there’s something in me that feels magical and natural so I’m hoping to follow it.”
What is ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ about?

When he pulls one over on Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes), his victim sees a lucrative opportunity, and they become partners in the con game, plying their trade across the courts of Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Billy has to keep one step ahead of mobsters, to whom he owes money, while staying on the good side of his “Jeopardy!”-obsessed, motormouth wife (Rosie Perez).
