How Long Before Chevy Chucks T.I. Under the Bus?

By Published on .

General Motors might be looking for a new face to pimp its Chevy Impala SS model to replace rapper and sometimes actor, T.I., reports

Feds over the weekend cuffed T.I. (real name Clifford Harris) on charges of illegal gun possession, just hours before a scheduled appearance at the BET Hip Hop Awards.

Chevrolet, which late last year brought in T.I. to be featured in various new promotions for the new Impala, including a TV commercial featuring racer Dale Earnhardt Jr. and a Superbowl spot, is apparently "reviewing the situation," a GM representative told the online gossip site.

Finding a worthy replacement could prove tough. According to TMZ, the automaker said earlier this year: "Chevy is a brand that represents a voice of American Revolution, and T.I. shares some of those same values."

Um, like the right to bear arms? May we suggest Charlton Heston?
