The trailer to the Lion’s Gate film ‘A Day In The Life’, written by, directed by and starring Sticky Fingaz, has been posted online. Other cast members include Omar Epps, Mekhi Phifer, Michael Rapaport, Ray J, Clarence Williams III, Malinda Williams, Fredro Starr, Faizon Love, and Michael K. Williams. Sticky Fingaz describes the film as ‘Godfather Meets Romeo & Juliet’. When asked why he decided against straight dialogue, he explained, “I’m an artist and I create music and at the same time, I’m an actor so it made sense to try something innovative and merge the two together. We’ll be doing the same with Onyx’s ‘Black Rock’ album, merging hip-hop and rock. It’s a way of tapping into both sides of myself.” The film is set to hit theaters in early 2009. Watch the trailer below.

Sticky Fingaz is featured in Entertainment Weekly’s ‘It List’. The rapper actor was asked what he plans on primarily doing in the future. “I think acting might last longer because I can’t be 50 years old, on stage rapping, diving in the crowd, and having people slam-dance,” he explained. And if he could do neither, Sticky says he’d be “some George Clooney con-man type sh** [apparently a reference to ‘Oceans Eleven’. I always wanted to rob a bank, too.”
AllHipHop.com caught up with Sticky Fingaz and asked the former Onyx frontman what happened with his Def Jam deal. “When we started getting into the business side of things. When I signed my first contract I was 15 and a 1/2. n**gas had a double platinum album and I’m 16 in Japan,” Sticky explained. “I didn’t really give a f*ck about business. As long as I had money to buy clothes, weed and liquor it was all good. But as n**gas got older we had more responsibilities. Then you start questioning. What the f*ck am I doing? n**gas wanted to eat off the fruits of their own labor. Its either you let n**gas keep pimping you or you put your foot down and do something. That’s the right step. Right now we are getting seven dollars for every record sold. That’s a big chance because we on an independent label. For a new artist it’s hard to be on an an independent label because you only got so much money for marketing. But if your group is established like we are it works to your benefit.”
