Kid Cudi

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 Dreamworks' adaptation of the video game Need For Speed, to be directed by Scott Waugh.

Cudi joins Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek and Harrison Gilbertson, in a story that follows a man (played by Aaron Paul) who races across the country at high speeds, seeking revenge on the man who killed his best friend.

Mescudi plays the best friend - so I guess it's no spoiler at this point to say that he dies before the film is over.

It kind of sounds like it'll be a Fast & Furious-tyle romp.

Kid Cudi can also be seen in the upcoming rom-com Two Night Stand, as well as an apocalyptic indie comedy titled Goodbye World, starring Adrian Grenier, as well as an indie thriller titled Tacoma, with Patricia Clarkson.

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.

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