    P Diddy is set to star in an HBO movie! Oh yeah, he's going to be playing the role of Delta Blue king Robert Johnson. :eek: :rolleyes:
  2. Dude, he's a popstar! Everybody knows that popstars can act.:rolleyes:
  3. ROBERT JOHNSON?!!??!?! That is just wrong. Just....plain.......wrong.

    Did you see Monster's Ball? P Diddy played Hally Berry's husband on death row. Pretty decent job.

    If P Diddy playing Robert Johnson is what it takes to get a movie about him made, then I'll give it a shot. What the heck. No matter what--it'll be better than Mariah Carey....:D

    You're right he was pretty good in Monster's Ball. I dont think he is a great wonderful actor, but was never impressed with him as an artist either. On the other hand look at how bad of a critic I am!!

    Great bussiness man!! I just hope he doesnt choke like Prince or Mariah or B. Spears.

    Yeah, but they've never been able to determine exactly where Johnson's buried, so who knows who it was. ;) :bassist:

    Awww...man! They shoulda gotten Ralph Macchio. He killed in Crossroads. Plus, his name is Macchio...which is two letters more than "macho."

    I am really curious to know if Puffy knew who Johnson was BEFORE he was offered this movie part.....

    You can always stay home.
  11. NO! NO! NO! NO!

    Are these guys sniffing the laundry hamper again?

    Jackie Chan would probably play Robert J. better than P Diddy. :D

    What part is J-Lo going to play? :p

    The future explained:

    1) J-Lo marrys Ben Affleck.
    2) J-Lo makes another movie.
    3) J-Lo releases another CD.
    4) J-Lo gets back with Sean.
    5) Ben Affleck leaves Hollywood, opens deli in Arizona.

    Everyone's happy.

    Mike :D

    Maybe this was part of the deal when Johnson sold his soul... :eek: :D

    I haven't seen P. Diddy act, maybe he's alright. I mean Donnie and Mark Walhberg are both better as actors than they were as popstars. Maybe if he's an alright actor it will mean that he will stop releasing music.

    Well I didn't see monster's ball so I don't know if he is a good actor or not (from my point of view anyway) but that is an interesting choice...

    I don't really see a physical resemblence but who knows how it will turn out. You never know.

    I heard this crazy rumor years ago that one of the stars of "Bosom Buddies" was going to be in a Speilberg movie about WWII.

    That one of the Sweathogs was going to play a hitman.

    That some "TV star" was goiing to play Bond.

    I saw Puffy Daddy in Monsters Ball and thought he did a good job. It takes a special talent to make movies as bad as Prince or Britney or Mariah, really special talent. Or maybe just being surrounded by people who wouldn't tell them the truth.

    Note to Josh: Have you seen "Under the Cherry Moon"?

    They had to do an international recalibration of the the suckosity meters after that one... and Kristen Scott Thomas was in it.

    P. Diddy seems to do a good job at acting like a rapper...

    I thought that if Puffy were going to be in a movie, it would be a remake of an insanely popular movie (like Star Wars) done almost exactly the same as the original, just with a different beat.
