Dark Man X is indeed a man of many talents, easily vacillating between seasoned rap veteran and captivating thespian to anointed minister in recent times. While he's been busy making his rounds as the former and the latter, he'll soon be returning to his work as an actor in a new psychological thriller.

HNHH has learned that DMX is set to join a cast that includes the likes of Brendan Sexton and Tara Reid for Chronicle Of A Serial Killer. Directed by Steve Stanulis, the film will follow Sexton as the central lead Henry Brolin, a serial killer who targets women that he believes will ultimately turn out to be like his mother. In his role, DMX will be playing one of the lead detectives tasked with track Brolin down.

"When my casting director suggested DMX it immediately resonated with me as a perfect fit" Stanulis tells us. "I have no doubt he is going bring a different dynamic to the role and I'm excited to have him part of this talented cast. I'm looking forward to working with him and everyone else this summer.

Filming for the flick is set to take place in NYC, beginning in June.

Until then, DMX will be busy fulfilling a schedule of appearances on the musical side of things as he continues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of It's Dark And Hell Is Hot. The itinerary includes stops in Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Chicago before things come to a close with his set at Rolling Loud Miami.
