In the comedy Lottery Ticket, Bow Wow plays Kevin Carson, a poor kid in the projects whose winning numbers in a Friday night drawing on the Fourth of July 3-day weekend may make him an instant multimillionaire — if he can hold onto the ticket long enough to claim the prize with so many of his neighbo
Bow Wow says of the predicament his character finds himself in, â€śKevinâ€™s just a regular guy, going through the things that any normal teenager would go through â€¦ if they happened to hit the lottery for $370 million dollars. Heâ€™s just trying to keep it quiet and get through the weekend until he can claim his money. Of course, nothing goes the way he plans it.â€ť
Director Erik White has his own idea of what he would do with such a windfall. â€śIt sounds corny, but I would give back, personally, to people. I donâ€™t think Iâ€™d give to any organization but just make it my goal to help neighborhoods and individuals.â€ť White then adds, â€śAlso Iâ€™d buy a yacht, a football team and maybe an island. And I wouldnâ€™t tell anyone â€” at least, that would be the plan. But itâ€™s hard to keep that kind of thing a secret. Most likely, the same thing would happen to me that happens to Kevin.â€ť
