If you find yourself trying to place that familiar face in The Possession, that's Jewish rap/reggae star Matisyahu performing the Jewish exorcism on a little girl who's been possessed by a Dybbuk (a demon that's been let out of a box meant to store it for eternity). If you're surprised that the musician is now acting, consider that he's been doing so before he ever started writing original music. (He even previously shot a tiny indie film with Elisabeth Moss called A Buddy Story, but it wasn't widely distributed). Now that he's shaved his beard, he's hoping to branch out and play a wide range of characters. Matis took a break from his current Spark Seeker album tour to chat with Vulture about going full-frontal in Equus, getting rid of his facial hair, and losing a role to Justin Timberlake.What was your experience with acting before this?
