T.I.'S ANKLE BRACELET A LIABILITY ON TAKERS FILM SET

Rapper T.I. struggled to balance his post-prison responsibilities
with his film commitments on the set of new movie TAKERS - because his
home arrest ankle bracelet kept going off and ruining takes.
The Live Your Life hitmaker shot the film, in which he plays a
recently incarcerated thief, following his release from prison on
illegal weapons possession charges in December (09).
His criminal sentence included a curfew, which required T.I. to be
at home by 1am, and he wasn't allowed to hold any guns on set.
But it was his location-monitoring ankle bracelet that presented the
biggest challenge - during one night shoot, it was set off, forcing a
reshoot, according to the Los Angeles Times.
He insists, "(It was) just another day at the office."
But the American Gangster star insists he's no longer the liability
on a film set he once was when he'd show up late and act like the
movie's star.
He tells the newspaper, "If I'm going to a concert and they say I
gotta be there at 10, and I don't show up until 12, everything all
good because the show can't go without me. Whereas, on a film, if you
five minutes late, you late.
"I had just got from music. I had just got a seven, eight
million-dollar cheque, so I was pulling up in Rolls Royces, smoke
coming out like Snoop Dogg. I didn't treat the circumstances as
delicate as they were."
T.I. is currently in talks with movie moguls Brett Ratner and Brian
Grazer about upcoming film roles. (KL/LAT/IG)
