Drake is starring in the upcoming animated film “Ice Age 4: Continental Drift,” he provides the voice of a wooly mammoth named “Ethan.” Recently a scene was released which shows the Young Money MC’s character asking another mammoth on a prehistoric date.
The Canadian rapper previously described his character, saying “He’s a young, strapping, handsome jock…He’s really good at turtle football. He’s very popular.” He added “I get to be this over-the-top mammoth in Ice Age, and a lot of capturing these characters is going as far as you can…Because you have to realize that [the viewers are] not going to see your face. They’re not going to see you look awkward and screaming. And if you have to do things that are a little over-the-top, all they’re going to do is hear it.”
Drake has previous acting experience, he performed in the show “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” before beginning his career in music.
