Scott Mescudi, known to most of the world as rapper, singer-songwriter, producer Kid Cudi, has added yet another new role to his fledgling acting resume, joining the cast of the rom-com Two Night Stand, which stars Analeigh Tipton and Miles Teller.

To be directed by Max Nichols, his feature directorial debut, the film follows two people who meet online, connect in the real world, have a one-night stand, are snowed in the next morning and have to spend much of the day together, inside.

Cudi will play the boyfriend of Tipton's roommate, played by Jessica Szohr

Presumably, both couples are snowed in, stuck in the same location.

Shooting has begun.

Cudi also has roles in an apocalyptic indie comedy titled Goodbye World, starring Adrian Grenier, as well as an indie thriller titled Tacoma, with Patricia Clarkson.

The first, which has wrapped principal photography, under Denis Henry Hennelly's direction, follows a group of college friends who reunite in a remote Northern California town as civilization collapses.

Kid Cudi plays one of the college friends, an eccentric computer hacker.

No ETA yet on when Goodbye World can be expected to debut - likely in 2013, on the film festival circuit.

And secondly, Kid Cudi was cast in an indie thriller titled Tacoma - described as a feature length narrative thriller about a real estate agent who wanted to be a dancer.

Stewart Thorndike is directing from his own screenplay.

Cudi will be playing a character named Yanni, who's said to be Cynthia's lover. But who's Cynthia? The synopsis doesn't mention her, and neither does IMDB. But I'm sure we'll find out soon. 

Cudi is still relatively new to acting; from 2010 to 2011, for 2 seasons, he co-starred in the HBO comedy series How to Make It in America, as part of the main cast, until its cancellation last year.

The 3 above new projects will mark his entry into big screen, feature film acting.
