Diddy to Star in New Comedy, Take ‘Last Train to Paris’
Got Diddy? Well if you've had enough, make room for a little more. Music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs has just announced that he will be staring in a new comedy. "I just signed on to do a comedy as a matter of fact," he said in an interview. "I can't announce who it's with, but it's with some definitely comedy heavy hitters."
This will be the first comedic role for Combs, who showed his dramatic acting chops in the Golden Globe nominated television mini-series 'A Raisin In The Sun.' Combs also recently won a NAACP image award for the role. "There's such a joy in making people laugh. I look forward to it," he said of the new role.
Combs, who says that he is "strongly pursuing his acting career," has a lot of projects in the works. The self-professed work-a-holic also dabbles in the reality television world as the executive producer of shows like 'Making the Band 4,' 'Run's House,' and 'Daddy's Girls.'
Last Thursday marked the premiere of the third season of 'Making the Band 4' on MTV. Combs also announced that he will be premiering a new reality series 'Making His Band' on the network. The show will give music hopefuls the opportunity to compete for a spot in Combs' personal band. The winners will go on tour with the producer/rapper to promote his next album 'Last Train to Paris.' The album will feature Combs singing with the help of a vocoder machine (of course).
'Last Train To Paris' will be released in September of this year.
