It's rare to see a real success story like Armando Perez aka Pitbull's epic climb from singing in local Miami venues to appearing on the world stage, but this is one journey to remember. Now appearing in his first film role, "Epic," this Miami rapper has truly shot for the stars.
Rapper Pitbull has taken his blend of American pop music fused with Latin beats from the clubs of Miami to international pop charts, but he now is crossing into film with his first acting role as an animated character in the movie, “Epic.”
Pitbull, whose real name is Armando Perez, has become a staple in the pop music field with lively dance-floor tracks including recent chart hits “Feel This Moment” with Christina Aguilera and “Live it Up” with Jennifer Lopez.
The rapper, 32, plays street-smart toad Bufo in “Epic,” which explores a secret universe where the natural world is battling evil forces.
