TLC's Chilli Gets Reacquainted With The Silver Screen

As TLC looks to wrap up its current North American tour after shows this week in Minneapolis and Indianapolis, fans can look forward to seeing the individual members of TLC branch out with different solo projects.

T-Boz has released a book of her poetry, titled "Thoughts" (and which includes the lyrics to group's current hit, "Unpretty"). Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes is planning her debut solo album, and Chilli has reacquainted herself with the cinematic world.

"I did a small part in this movie that's coming out," Chilli told the MTV Radio Network. "[It's] called 'Snow Day,' and it's a Nickelodeon film, starring Chevy Chase. It's hilarious and I really enjoyed doing it. And it was a lot of fun for me."

Even though she enjoyed the recent film experience, Chilli, who had a cameo in 1994's "House Party 3," was quick to point out that she plans to choose her acting projects

very carefully.

"I [have] received a lot of scripts," she said, "but I don't want to do just anything. I'll know when it's the right [role]. And I'm really hoping that Will Smith and Martin Lawrence would do a 'Bad Boys 2,' because I'm gonna claim that one." [RealAudio]

"Snow Day," which also boasts appearances from Pam Grier, Iggy Pop, and Chris Elliott, tells the story of a group of students who hijack a snow plow to keep their upstate New York school closed.

Chilli should also be happy to know that a "Bad Boys 2" has recently been announced, and will be lensed by original "Bad Boys" director Michael Bay, along with newcomer Tom Dey.
