Diddy’s Going ‘Greek’

By: Celebuzz / April 16, 2009

Forget Seth Rogen. Prepare to get your comedy fix from a new player in town.

Sean “Diddy” Combs has just signed on to star in the new Judd Apatow movie, Get Him to the Greek, with Jonah Hill, Russell Brand and Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss. The movie, a spin-off from last year’s hit movie, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, will follow Hill, who is put in charge of the safety of the out-of-control rock star (Brand) as he makes his way from London to a concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Diddy will play the role of “Sergio,” the owner of the record label and Hill’s boss.

While Diddy’s character isn’t too far from his reality, it will be interesting to see him paired alongside the likes of Brand and Hill.

Diddy has previously acted in the Broadway play Raisin in the Sun.
