American rapper and singer André Benjamin has joined the cast of Noah Baumbach’s White Noise. Benjamin is the latest addition to the ensemble, which already includes Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig, Jodie Turner-Smith, Don Cheadle and Alessandro Nivola.
Benjamin’s acting credits include High Life, Jimi: All Is by My Side, Scary Movie 4, and Fracture to name a few. White Noise is an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s acclaimed 1985 novel by the same name and follows a year in the life of Jack Gladney, a professor who has made his name by pioneering the field of Hitler studies.
It is Baumbach’s third film for Netflix, after the Oscar-nominated Marriage Story and The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).
Meanwhile, it has been reported that Benjamin will also be appearing in Kelly Reichardt’s Showing Up, starring Michelle Williams, Hong Chau, Judd Hirsch, and Maryann Plunkett.
