After years of movie acting, Common finally landed a steady television gig.

AMC's newest show, "Hell On Wheels", will feature the Chicago MC in a prominent role. Com will play Elam, "a half black, half white, freed slave hoping to find work" (RapBasement).

According to AMC's VP of Programming, Joel Stillerman:
“Common brings a layered intensity to a very complex role. This part required someone who can transcend the stereotypes of the period and bring the character to life in a truly unique way, and he brings that.”
