André Benjamin (Clarence)
André Benjamin is best known for his work as half of the world-renowned, pioneering, Grammy Award-winning duo, OutKast. Their album "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below" sold over ten million copies, propelled by Benjamin's number one single, "Hey Ya!" For their distinguished body of work spanning over a decade, OutKast has received multiple Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below" in 2004.

Fueled by his artistic passion, Benjamin now has turned his attention to other creative outlets and is making an indelible mark on the film and television world, having recently starred in Universal Picture's Idlewild, a musical set in the prohibition-era South in which Benjamin stars and for which he co-created the story and co-wrote the soundtrack with his OutKast partner, Big Boi; the drama Four Brothers for director John Singleton, in which he received rave reviews for his portrayal of an adopted brother opposite Mark Wahlberg; and Be Cool the sequel to the smash hit comedy, Get Shorty and co-starring John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn, and Cedric the Entertainer. Benjamin also lent his voice to the anime feature Whasango and Paramount Picture's live-action/CG feature, Charlotte's Web.

Benjamin will next be seen in the drama, Battle In Seattle, co-starring Charlize Theron and directed by Stuart Townsend.

Benjamin is also creator and executive producer of "Class of 3000," an animated series for the Cartoon Network which is entering its second season. He also provides the voice of the series' main character as well as composes the series' music.

André Benjamin is also an accomplished painter and clothing designer, further solidifying his role as a true multi-media artist and entrepreneur. Among his many accolades, Benjamin has been named the World's Best Dressed Man by Esquire Magazine and was named as one of Premiere Magazine's "New Power Players."

André Benjamin, a musician and actor who is half of the acclaimed, multi-platinum selling music duo Outkast and has appeared in films such as Four Brothers and Idlewild, plays Clarence Withers, the flamboyant "superstar" of the Tropics. "I guess he's the most athletic of them all," says Benjamin. "He has this natural ability from the neighborhood or from the playground style of playing. He likes to go for all the shots and doesn't like to pass the ball. He doesn't even run down the court to play defense."

Will Ferrell was impressed by Benjamin's contributions to the film. "For André to be thrust into a comedy like this and have to be the best player on the court, he's been amazing. He brings his whole charisma to the film. And he may be the most stylish person I will ever meet in my life!"
