L.L. Cool J To Teach "Crazy" Kids In New Film

After appearing in six films in the last two years, L.L. Cool J has signed on to star in a new project, "Crazy Town," that will re-team the rapper-turned-actor with Warner Bros., the same production company behind his 1999 flicks "Deep Blue Sea" and "Any Given Sunday."

According to "The Hollywood Reporter," Warner Bros. has snatched up rights to a script written by Andy Lieberman and which is described as a mixture of such films as "Dangerous Minds" and "To Sir With Love."

In "Crazy Town," L.L. will apparently portray a teacher who is brought in to instruct some high school students who have been institutionalized at a mental hospital. L.L. Cool J's most recent role was that of Miami Sharks running back Julian Washington in Oliver Stone's pro football flick, "Any Given Sunday."

L.L. Cool J recently traded the gridiron for the hard-court when he appeared at the NBA All-Star Game over the weekend, performing at the halftime extravaganza alongside Mary J. Blige,

98 Degrees, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Montell Jordan, and Martina McBride.
