2. The IFC Gets "Trapped" With R.Kelly
Despite a pending child pornography trial coming sometime this century, R. Kelly is biding his time well with a new deal with the Independent Film Channel. Daily Variety
The deal falls in line with Kelly’s original intent for the "Trapped" saga, as he told Variety
The singer will play an old man named Randolph, complete with a pot belly and a fake white beard that nearly falls off mid-scene, according to Billboard. com, which also revealed that Kelly will also portray a preacher in a gray Jheri-curl wig and garish orange suit. In one of the final chapters of the saga, Kelly's Sylvester character talks business with a Sopranos-esque mobster who is eating a giant plate of spaghetti.
While I applaud Kelly for signing the deal, I have to ask, how many more chapters does he have in him? "Trapped in the Closest" is entertaining, but is Kelly trying to run the saga into the ground? I could be wrong, but I’d hate to see it messed up.
