Diddy apparently had auditioned for the role of black Sgt. Lincoln Osiris in Tropic Thunder but he got beat by a white guy-Robert Downey Jr. I’m sure Ben Stiller, who directed and starred in the film, didn’t have to think long and hard on this one. I mean, let’s face it. Diddy isn’t what you’d call a good actor (sorry Diddy). And Downey was genius in this role. There’s no way Diddy could have pulled off playing, as Downey’s character says in the movie, “the dude playing the dude disguised as another dude.” Nope, sorry Diddy. Maybe try concentrating on your music (it’s been pretty crappy lately). That way you can save your precious private jet fuel by not flying back and forth to LA and you won’t have to ask your “Saudi Arabian brothers and sisters” to send you some oil. Leave the acting to the people who actually have talent.
Tropic Thunder is out on DVD and it’s a hilarious movie. Check it out.
