DAILY TRANSRACIAL: LL Cool J

the-deal-2preview

No, rapper/actor/muscle dude LL Cool J doesn’t have some mystery white mama. But our white mama is proving once again that age is no barrier to coolness.

On a family visit today, she told Transracial about a new movie — The Deal — that she snagged a sneak preview this week.

The movie — an inside Hollywood flick in the spirit of Altman or Mamet — stars bold-facers such as Meg Ryan, William H. Macy and LL Cool J who plays an African-American action movie star who’s recently converted to Judaism

How Sammy Davis, Jr!

As a new Jew, LL’s character wants his next role to be Jewish — and concocts a majorly-mad scheme to star in a bio-pic of former British (and Jewish) Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.

Meg stars as his female lead, Elliot Gould plays a rabbi and Macy’s in there as a down-on-his-luck producer.

It’s all mixed and messed up — but in a totally trans-fun and funky kind of way.

Nice tip mom!
