Unfortunately he's not, but it does look like Drake is getting back to his acting roots. He's reportedly in talks to star alongside Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon in a new movie.

The actor/rapper rose to fame playing a high school student in Canadian teen drama "Degrassi: The Next Generation". Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, then went on to sign a music deal with Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment and record with artists including Rihanna, Kanye West and Eminem.

The hip-hop star is now set with a part in upcoming thriller Arbitrage, about a corrupt banker played by Pacino, reports TheWrap.com.

Former Bond girl Eva Green will also star in the movie as Pacino's onscreen mistress but it is not yet known what part Drake will play if he signs the deal.

Filming is due to begin in March.
