In a role that mirrors his real life, Bad Boy Entertainment CEO Diddy has been chosen to star in the upcoming Forgetting Sarah Marshall sequel, Get Him to the Greek.

The rap mogul will join a cast of many comedians.

Get Him to the Greek features Elisabeth Moss, Rose Byrne, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Russell Brand and Jonah Hill. (New York Magazine)

Diddy will take on the role similar to his own life as a record company executive.

It centers on Brand's outrageous character from Marshall, the out-of-control British rock star "Aldous Snow," and "Aaron," a music-company intern, who must accompany "Snow" to a concert at L.A.'s Greek Theater. Moss is set to play "Daphne Binks," Aaron's girlfriend, while Byrne will be a promiscuous pop musician named "Jackie Q," who may perform a duet with Snow. Combs has been cast as "Sergio," the head of the entertainment company for which Hill's character works. (Hollywood Insider)

The film will reportedly begin production this summer.

Writer/director Nicholas Stoller will direct this follow-up, based on a screenplay he also penned. Judd Apatow is producing. Rodney Rothman and Phil Eisen are executive producing. The movie will be from Universal Pictures. (Variety)

Aside from films, Diddy has recently been seen promoting Day26 and Jadakiss' new album.

"It's a big, big, big, big day tomorrow," Diddy said in a recent video. Tomorrow this comes out right here, The Last Kiss. You gotsa have that. We just did deal we just probably sponsored a tour, some of the videos everything else. The family is back together." (P. Twitty TV)
