*Freestyle* Common & Lin-Manuel Miranda

Disney’s “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” a film by Peter Hedges, is currently on location in Georgia. On Saturday, Jennifer Garner surprised her co-stars Joel Edgerton, CJ Adams, Odeya Rush and the rest of the cast and crew by treating them to a live lunchbreak performance by the local southern rock band Fiasco. As Fiasco was creating a lively mood, two of the film’s other stars — Common and Lin-Manuel Miranda — spontaneously joined the band and begin to trade the microphone by freestyle rapping to everyone’s delight!

Common Set To Star In AMC’s “Hell On Wheels”

Move over Will Smith…Here Comes Common!!!

Rubicon’s small-but-devoted audience mourned the show’s cancellation last month, but it wasn’t all bad news for AMC, since it gives the channel an opportunity to launch a new series at a time when Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead already occupy much of the year’s Sunday slate. The lucky winner will be Hell on Wheels, an 1860s-set drama about a former Confederate soldier (Anson Mount) who seeks vengeance while working on the railroad. (Also, there’s Common!) The internally well-received pilot has been picked up to series; expect a bow sometime late in 2011, unless the network’s other new series, crime drama The Killing, sucks up the available schedule space.

Common will play a half-black, half-white freed slave working on the Transcontinental Railroad.
