However, Drake is being careful about who he works with and is said to be looking for projects that resonate instead of big names. "What part?" Then, as if to talk himself into the purchase, he says: "I should get it". But right now it feels like we just started, so I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. "Maybe I'll buy it for myself as a treat", Drake told THR over a series of interviews in September.
In his new cover story for The Hollywood Reporter, published online on Wednesday, November 8, the 31-year-old revealed that he's teaming up with Netflix to revive the short-lived British crime series Top Boy. Additionally, the 6 God will be co-producing Vince Carter's documentary, The Carter Effect.
During a recent Hollywood Reporter interview, it was revealed that Drake is working on multiple film and TV projects for Netflix and Apple.
"I vetted him with five people and got bad feedback about working with him."
Future said that Drake has received "a script a week for acting" since he can remember, adding that the studios know his background in acting and have offered up "everything from rebooting the "Barbershop" franchise to superhero sidekicks". But no matter how many masks we wear, an essential foundation remains underneath everyone's surface and Drake is no exception. I try to show it through different outlets, like Saturday Night Live, showing people that I can be amusing. "I think I'm going to really start to position myself in the acting world and, hopefully, take some great roles".
"I identify as Jewish", Drake explained.
However, what fans might not know is that he is a die-hard Harry Potter fan - so much so that he's considering spending $160,000 on a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. According to Jimmy Iovine, Drake has the freedom at Apple to "produce whatever he chooses".
Drake also executive produced The Carter Effect, a documentary on National Basketball Association legend and former Toronto Raptors star Vince Carter's effect on the city of Toronto.
