Meek Mill's Probation May Have Cost Him A Role In A Will Smith Movie

He was set to appear in '12 O'Clock Boys.'

A conviction on probation violation could send Meek Mill back to prison, but it was his obeying the terms of his probation that may have cost him a role in a Will Smith movie.

According to Page Six, Meek was supposed to fly to Los Angeles in November regarding a part in “12 O’Clock Boys,” which is being produced by Smith's Overbrook Entertainment. However, because of his probation, which called for him to take a urine test on the day of travel, the Philadelphia native didn't make the trip out west.

The movie is a Hollywood adaptation of a 2013 documentary on dirt bike riders in West Baltimore, with Meek up for the role of Wheelie Wayne.

The role probably wouldn't have been too far outside of the rapper's comfort zone: He has often posted videos of himself and friends riding dirt bikes, and even released an app called "Bike Life."

Judge Genece Brinkley is yet to determine the punishment for the violation.
