Diddy to Star in Comedy with Jonah Hill

Bad Boy mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs will hit the silver screen next year in Universal Pictures’ comedy flick, Get Him to the Greek.

The film, helmed by Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller, centers on a fresh-out-of-college record company intern (played by Superbad star Jonah Hill) hired to transport a reckless rock star (played by Marshall actor Russell Brand) from London to his gig at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre. Combs plays Hill’s boss, a record company executive.

Diddy starred in 2008’s made-for-TV movie A Raisin in the Sun, which was well received by critics and earned him an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor.
