Q-Tip to play an Ethiopian drug dealer in the film ‘Holy Rollers’

February 4, 2009

Q-Tip returns to the world of film with Holy Rollers, a character-driven drama, inspired by a true event from the late 90s when a young man from the Hasidic community was caught trafficking ecstasy into the US. Q-Tip will play an Ethiopian drug dealer in the indi drama, alongside Jesse Eisenberg (Sam Gold), a young Hasidic man seduced by the money, power and misplaced sense of opportunity; Justin Bartha (Yosef), a young man in his community who is already mixed up in the complicated and dangerous world led by an Israeli drug dealer played by Danny A. Abeckaser. (Source: EURweb)
