Ludacris spoke with Rebecca Louie of The New York Daily News about his role in the race-relations drama ‘Crash’, out Friday. “People automatically think that I am going to come around with a large entourage, smoking weed, coming to the set late,” he said. “I’m trying to kill the stereotype. I always got there on time, made a point to let everybody know how serious I was. I gained a reputation of being a professional person who is easy to work with.” As part his move to be taken seriously, Luda is credited as his birth name in the film, Chris Bridges.
