Rapper T.I. debuts Magnum, T.I. role in hilarious Jimmy Kimmel sketch: Watch here

magnum-tiImage Credit: ABCAtlanta rapper T.I. paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel‘s late-night show yesterday to promote his latest movie, Takers. Before bringing T.I. out Kimmel spoke about how busy the artist is–noting that he’s also got an album on the way. And he added that, “He has a new TV show premiering this fall on CBS, I think. It’s a remake of an old show. But with a younger, hipper, more urban twist. Check it out.”

Then came the classic theme song and intro to classic 80’s action drama Magnum, P.I. In a Hawaiian tee shirt, T.I. played Tom Selleck’s role as private investigator Thomas Magnum–mustache and all. For someone who’s known to be too cool for such a skit, T.I. provides some side-splitting humor here. Give it a look after the jump.

How do you think T.I. did? And will you be going to see Takers when it hits theaters?

    Can’t see the video from work but I will be going to see Takers and hope that others will support it too so that more black actors can get serious roles and there might be less “Lottery Tickets”
