Just ask Big Boi, half of Grammy-winning hip-hop duo OutKast, whos guest starring on Law & Order: SVU tonight (Nov. 18) on NBC.
Big Boi plays a hip-hop artist involved in an exotic animal smuggling ring, and getting into character was easy for him since hes had tons of alter-egos throughout his music career.
Big Bois personas include hood king Daddy Fat Sacks, leader and fighter General Patton, ladies man Hot Tub Toney, and down-home country boy Francis the Savannah Chitlin Pimp.
He explains, Theyre all extensions of my personality, just like acting roles. Its myself in different dimensions, at different times of my life.
Big Bois favorite persona is his latest one, Sir Lucious Left Foot, whom hes introducing on his new album that drops next year.
He says, Sir Lucious is a mature, seasoned, world traveler. Hes seen it all and has it figured out. Hes me all grown up, but still fun and sexy.
