Pras Michel, of the hip-hop band The Fugees, has just finished shooting the documentary drama, First Night, about living on Skid Row in Los Angeles.
According to Variety, Pras, who is also a producer, stars as a homeless man living on $1 a day for nine days. During the shoot, Pras carried a hidden camera around while several other cameras were positioned in vans. In one shot, Pras is panhandling as he stands beneath a huge Fugees billboard; no one recognized him from his towering image above.
Producers are hoping to have First Night ready in time for the Toronto Film Festival in September.
