— Cryme Tyme member Shad revealed in a blog post on his MySpace account that he passed the first round of casting calls for a role in the upcoming Conan the Barbarian remake, Conan. He is hoping to land the role of one of the movie’s main villains, Ukafa. Should he land the role, he will star alongside Stargate Atlantis actor Jason Momoa, who is playing Conan.
He wrote: “Good News, I’m past the first part of casting for the new Conan the Barbarian movie as one of the main villains “UKAFA”. Now it’s down to me and several others to see which one of us will go head to head with Jason Momoa. This role is as important to me as playing The Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns was for Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. I never ask my fans for much, but if you think I would be the best opponent to fight Jason Momoa in the new Conan the Barbarian film then I need you guys to hit the Conan chat rooms, forums, blogs, tweets, and message boards and let them know Shad Gaspard is the man when it comes to kicking ass and taking names on the big screen…..”
