‘Offset’s character is important to the storyline and we couldn’t be more excited to have him working with us behind the scenes as he works with Ian and the team at STX to help us define the sound of this film. We could not be in better hands,’ Fogelson added. 

‘This is my first feature film as an actor. After doing NCIS, I knew I wanted to do more acting,’ Offset said in a statement.

‘Landing this role in American Sole is dope. Not only do I get to star in the movie, but I get to bring my skills to the table as the curator and executive producer for the soundtrack. I’m bringing my world to the big screen. I hope the world is ready,’ he added.
