T.I. will be starring alongside Kelsey Grammer in "Boss" on Starz cable channel

Go ‘head Clifford!

Atlanta rap star and actor T.I. has joined the cast of “Boss” on pay cable network Starz starring Kelsey Grammer as the mayor of Chicago hiding the fact he has a degenerative neurological disease.

Production for season two begins in Chicago Monday. His part will be in a season-long arc as a former gangbanger with an eye on a political career.

According to the story in Deadline.com, “he is the conduit between a local Alderman and the only group powerful enough to function as a grassroots organization in the projects – gangs.”

Starz, like other paid cable networks that rely on subscriptions rather than advertising, doesn’t necessarily focus on overnight ratings but more about pleasing its subscribers. “Boss” was quickly renewed last fall despite modest numbers. (It opened at 659,000 viewers, then fell to 319,000 viewers week two. With repeated viewing, the debut drew about 3 million viewers over its first three days.)

Grammer won a Golden Globe earlier this year for his role on ‘Boss.”

T.I. has acted in three major films: “ATL,” “American Gangster” and most recently 2010’s “Takers.”

He is currently on a reality show, “T.I. and Tiny,” on VH1, which averages about 2.5 million viewers a week. Though the network has not said anything about a renewal, if T.I. is willing to move forward, I can’t imagine VH1 would say no for a second season.

Fresh out of jail and already running at full speed, Tip is focused maaaaaaan!
