Sean Diddy Combs is set to star in the next Judd Apatow movie! He, Elisabeth Moss, Rose Byrne, Jonah Hill, and Russell Brand have all signed on to the cast of Get Him To The Greek.
The story is about a recent college grad who interns for a record company and has to convince an out-of-control British rock star to show up to his gig at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.
Elisabeth Moss plays Jonah the intern’s girlfriend, while Diddy will play the label boss, and of course Brand is the British rock star. No stretch there! Rose Byrne will play Brand’s Courtney Love-type girlfriend. That’s definitely a departure from her prim and proper role in Damages.
Russell will actually be reprising his role of Aldous Snow from Forgetting Sarah Marshall. And you may remember Jonah Hill’s charater’s obsession with the rocker from that film, which will make their interaction in Greek even that more hilarious!
Another cool tidbit is that Jason Segal, who was also in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, has written the music for this movie. Apatow movies always have a way of bringing everyone in the comedy brat pack together! Diddy’s must be psyched to be a part of it!
