Joining both Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo, Cee Lo Green has been added to the cast of John Carney’s Can A Song Save Your Life?. The film follows a simple formula: a producer (Mark Ruffalo) finds a star-stuck and struggling singer named Gretta (Keira Knightley), and it’s easy to speculate they become more than just business partners.
Green will portray Troublegum, a successful hip-hop star who works with Ruffalo and lends advice to Knightley’s budding musical career. The film features another musical appearance from Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, who portrays Gretta’s long-term (soon-to-be-ex) boyfriend.
Green has been building quite a cinematic résumé recently starring in the upcoming musical drama, Sparkle, and also voicing Murray the Mummy in Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania.
