We all know that Drake is no stranger to the acting world. Before making it big in the music business, you could catch Drake flexing his acting chops as ‘Jimmy Brooks’ in Degrassi: Next Generation. Drake was on the show from 2001 to 2007 before leaving to focus on his music career, but it seems like he may be ready to get back to his roots.

Drake sat down with University of Kentucky basketball coach, John Calipari, for an interview for Calipari’s podcast. In the interview, Drake said: “Acting is another thing that I just can’t wait to really dive into, I think after I release ‘More Life’, which is this playlist I’m working on and finish this tour. I think I’m going to really start to position myself in the acting world and, hopefully, take some great roles.”

Drake has been working on his ‘More Life’ playlist since late last year. He explained to Calipari that the playlist is intended to “bridge the gap” between albums so that fans can continue to hear new music.

With so many new projects already in the works, Drake’s return to acting may not happen anytime soon – but let us know what you think! Would you be excited to see Drake return to acting? What kind of roles do you think he should take on?
