“I was just sitting down, I’m doing a scene with Queen Latifah…She gave me a real opportunity, not just on some — some real lines I’m just tapping into this. And just her response to how I’m moving, she gave me a lot of credit for it and I’m just thinking as I walk away ‘Wow who could’ve imagined this,’ I didn’t recite no lines or read the script until that morning I’m on the set smoking a blunt.”

The good news is that the rapper isn’t replacing The Equalizers partner, Chris Noth. Noth was fired after his sexual assault allegations, but Ross is sure to leave an impression on Queen Latifah and company.

Catch the 1 hour episode of The Equalizer on CBS and Paramount+ to see if Robyn McCall can help Dilemma out of his, well, dilemma.
