Eve Cast In Ice Cube Comedy, Wraps Up Vin Diesel Action Flick

Philly rapper will star in 'The Barbershop,' but first she'll hit theaters in a smaller role in 'XXX.'

If Eve were a professional athlete, you would say she's in the zone.

The sexy Philadelphia MC not only signed on for a starring role in Ice Cube's upcoming comedy "The Barbershop" earlier this month, but she just finished up an appearance in the Vin Diesel and Samuel L Jackson action flick "XXX" (or "Triple X"), due in late July.

According to her spokesperson, Eve has a small role as J.J., Diesel's partner in an underground Internet Web site. Don't expect to see to any sparks fly between the two with a love scene, though, Eve said they are strictly "homies."

Fans can still get a dose of Eve at her day job as a rapper — she and her Ruff Ryders family just released the compilation Ryde or Die Vol. III: In the "R" We Trust.
