We haven't seen much of Kid Cudi's acting chops since his HBO series 'How to Make it in America' went off the air, but now you can catch him in the new film 'James White,' which is premiering at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The 'Man on the Moon' creator plays the best friend of lead character Christopher Abbott -- he played Marnie's boyfriend, Charlie, on the HBO show 'Girls.'

Cudi's character plays a gay man in the film. "When he comes out of the closet it's not really a thing," he told Billboard. "I think that's something the world needs to see. 'Cause it's not a thing. We're all equal."

And when a guy-on-guy kissing scene in the film had to happen, Cudi reveals he had no problem puckering up. However, director Josh Mond cut the kissing scene, which was to Cudi's disappointment. "I'm mad [the director] cut out my kissing scene with David," he admitted. "We made out so many times, and it was good. That's my only gripe."

The Ohio native is currently working on his fifth album, 'Man on the Moon III,' and is set to star in the 'Entourage' film, which opens in June. The rhymer will play Ari Gold's assistant. You can read Cudi's Billboard interview here.
