Yasiin Bey Says He Won’t Play Thelonious Monk In Biopic Because Monk’s Family Doesn’t Approve
Yesterday, we reported that Yasiin Bey, the man formerly known as Mos Def, was set to star in Thelonious, a new movie about the life of jazz legend Thelonious Monk. This would’ve been Bey’s first film role in years. It won’t happen. Today, Bey has announced that he won’t move forward with the movie without the approval of Monk’s family.
