P Diddy to guest star on US sitcom ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’

Rapper will begin filming his guest role on the cult comedy series next week

P Diddy has landed a guest role on US sitcom It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the rapper will begin filming his stint on Monday (September 24). However, it is not known what sort of character he will play or how many episodes he has signed up for.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia premiered in 2005 and follows a group of “depraved underachievers” who run a struggling Irish pub in South Philadelphia. The show, whose cast includes Danny DeVito, is set to return for its eighth season on US cable network FX next month (October). Despite being a cult hit in the States, it has never been broadcast in the UK.

Using his real name Sean Combs, P Diddy has racked up a handful of notable acting roles over the years. He played a wise-cracking music mogul opposite Russell Brand and Jonah Hill in 2010’s Get Him To The Greek and has guested on US TV shows CSI: Miami and Hawaii Five-O.

Meanwhile, he is also signed up for Shoedog, an upcoming crime film also starring Heather Graham and Kris Kristofferson. The rapper’s most recent album – ‘Last Train To Paris’, credited to Diddy – Dirty Money – came out in 2010.
