Big Boi to appear on NBC's Law & Order, while working on solo and Outkast albums for 2009.

Outkast's Big Boi [click to read] will appear on an episode of NBC's Emmy Award winning drama Law & Order airing November 25. "Daddy Fat Sacks" will play the role of "Gots Money," a rapper who begins working as an undercover agent after becoming caught up in an animal-smuggling ring.

Big joins the ranks of fellow Atlantan, Ludacris [click to read], who formerly appeared on the show as the stepson of Ice-T's character, Detective Odafin Tutuola. While Big Boi has recently dabbled both acting and ballet [click to read], the Dungeon Family co-founder says he and Andre 3000 will shift their focus back to rhyming in 2009.

"Me and 'Dre were on the conference call [recently]," Big Boi said to MTV News. "He’s working on his album; my album is done. We're gonna wait until the top of the year — January or February — to put it out. Then 'Dre is gonna come hit y'all, and [then] we're gonna do the Outkast album. So y'all gonna get three records from the 'Kast next year."

Big Boi's solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: Son of Chico Dusty, was originally slated for a fourth quarter release. The lead single "Something's Gotta Give," [click to listen] featuring Mary J. Blige, spent six weeks on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Arista never publicly stated a reason for the album's delay, and the single peaked at the number 83 spot, before completely disappearing from the charts two weeks ago.
