Bow Wow, who currently stars in Malcolm D. Lee's Roll Bounce recently told the website Zap2it that he'll star in Universal Pictures' Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo, the third installment in the franchise.

"Me and Lucas Black are actually starring in that movie," he says. "It's gonna be hot and different. My first action movie, so it's gonna be great."

Directed by Justin Lin ("Better Luck Tomorrow"), the story revolves around a not-so-ugly American who flees to Tokyo to avoid prison for his illegal racing ways. He discovers the next level in rubber-burning adrenalin rushes: drift racing. The underground motor sport challenges drivers to accelerate through hairpin turns and then spin out of them, making for hair-raising races through city streets.

"It starts filming in the first week of October," says the rapper. "After [promoting 'Roll Bounce'] I go to Europe for a week and then I'm back over here for three and a half months. Then we're over in Tokyo and Japan for three and half weeks."

Although his movie career is advancing swiftly, Bow Wow isn't turning his back on his hip-hop roots. The teen has four albums to his onomatopoeic name, with the latest, "Wanted," released in July. He would also like to add to his soundtrack resume, which includes songs for "Wild Wild West" and "Big Momma's House."

"Definitely," he says. "I got to get on the 'Fast and the Furious' soundtrack."
