Jack Harlow says that he wants to continue acting after the release of his debut, White Men Can't Jump. The Jackman rapper discussed the future of his career during a screening of the movie in New York City.
"Through this film I was able to gain my confidence as an actor, and to me, this shit is not a side quest," he said, as caught by PEOPLE. "This isn't a side mission that I'm tacking on just to keep the entertainer thing going and make some extra money."

The NYC Screening Of "White Men Can't Jump"
He continued: "I really got the bug and fell in love with this, and I'm developing a deep passion for the craft of this the same way I had in music. I don't want it to be a side hustle, I want to full-on go after this, and I'm going after it and I'm going to continue to do more." Harlow also described the Los Angeles set as being like "summer camp or school" each day. He further admitted that "acting is way harder than music, if you ask me; way more grueling, so I loved the challenge and so grateful that this was the start."
The screening comes a month after the release of Harlow's third studio album, Jackman. With minimal promotion as well as no features, he dropped the project on April 28. It peaked at No. 8 on the US Billboard 200.
While White Men Can't Jump is Harlow's first appearance in a feature film, he will also appear in Wednesday night's episode of Dave. The Hulu series was similarly started by Lil Dicky, another rapper who has found success in the acting business. White Men Can't Jump will release on the platform on Friday.
