Diddy on “Inside The Actor’s Studio”: “I didn’t just play a record executive…[my character] is tri-polar”Posted by Miss Info under Good For Hip Hop , Quotes , Videos
Diddy appears on the legendary “Inside The Actor’s Studio” interview series tonight (Tues, May 25th) at 7pm EST on Bravo, facing off with James Lipton. In this preview, Diddy tells James that he drew from his own personality for his role as a demanding record exec in Judd Apatow’s Get Him To The Greek but also 3 other real-life rap industry tyrants.

More than likely, it’s folks we wouldn’t expect, like Irving Azoff (of the arguably monopolizing Ticketmaster/LiveNation merger). (Thanks to Maggie/BadBoy for the clip!)

“This is one of my most revealing and insightful interviews to date. It really captures my personal and professional life in the purest and most honest way. As I continue on this journey, I hope to make great films that will entertain the world,” states Sean “Diddy” Combs.

Diddy calls himself a good luck charm, because of his experiences working on the play Raisin in the Sun, and the movie Monster’s Ball: “At least I know if you’re a woman and you play against me, you’re gonna win an award…”
