Common and daughter Omoye Assata Lynn,15, are in sync with one another. Both father and daughter show their tongues to the camera as the lens captures a beautiful moment between parent and child.


Common will take on the role of parent for a day in his new film Luv, set for release this year. In the film, Common portrays an ex-convict uncle (Vincent) who takes his idolizing nephew (Woody) around for a day to show him the ropes of the street. As the two spend the day together, Woody comes to realize that Vincent is all that he has as a father figure. As Common explains, “[The movie is] really about the cycle that happens, usually in the inner city, when people don’t have good fathers.”

Luv will be released for viewing to a limited audience on January 18, 2013. The general public will have to wait until a later date to see Common in action onscreen.

Omoye aspires to be a lawyer like First Lady Michelle and President Barack Obama.
