    A$AP Rocky already has one foot apiece in the worlds of fashion and music, and now he's branching out even further. His next venture is acting, as he has a supporting role in "Dope," an indie film produced in part by Pharrell and Diddy that will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend.  The Rick Famuyiwa-directed flick tells of a music geek living in Inglewood in the '90s, and also features Zoe Kravitz and Chanel Iman (not so coincidentally Rocky's ex) in supporting roles.
