Diddy: 'Raisin in the Sun' Trailer

Diddy is reintroducing himself to the world as an actor. Now that he has a starring role in the upcoming film A Raisin in the Sun, he would now like to be called by his birth name, Sean Combs.

Diddy says, “The reason why it’s very important to me is ya’ll know me for a lot for different things–music, fashion, television and films. But you don’t really know me as an actor. I’d like to introduce my actor to you. That’s me! Sean Combs! My name is Sean Combs! You know I’ve got a lot of split personalities.”

Watch the trailer for A Raisin in the Sun below! Catch the premiere on Monday, Feb 25th @ 9PM ET/PT on ABC.

    pretty white girl – obviously you’ve never seen the play. And with that thinking, is The Wizard of Oz racist too? I don’t recall seeing any blacks in that film. Stop being ridiculous.

    :O

  • SadieLady

    wow.
    im ONLY gonna watch it because of John Stamos (he is fine) and Sanaa Lathan (LOVE & BASKETBALL..loved it) and i cant forget Phylicia Rashad (loved her on The Cosby Show)

    BUT P.DIDDY SUCKS. he cant do nething…act, sing/rap, or dance. he is soo bad. (i literally laughed out loud when i saw him cryin in tha trailer, he is BAD)

  • Frenchy

    Uh… this is not his first film. plus he was in the Broadway version of this film. He’s also one of the producers.

  • lula29

    Sanaa Lathan is so gorgeous! I want to be her when I grow up.

    P Diddy always suprises me with his acting ability. I can’t wait to see this. I love Langston Hughes and a Raisin in the Sun is one of my favs.

  • luckyL

    They wouldn’t hire a poor actor. I’m sure he can play the son very well, he has some of that character’s negative personality traits.

    Anyway, always loved Sanaa, I love this play when I read it, and I just hope they all do it justice.

    And lol at all his name changes.

  • luckyL

    God, after watching the video, he really is even more f****** lame than usual. He’s so freakin’ annoying. I may have to take back my words. He may ruin this film single-handedly.

    Oh God, PLEASE let them do this play justice.

  • B.

    Shut the ef up, Puffy, you are sooo full of yourself, it’s not funny anymore. And stop rapping, you’re awful at it.

  • He-who-shall-not-be-named

    Dear Diddy, we are flattered you will premier this movie on Tv for free, but it doesn’t make us forget how still prove to be a cheating, promiscuous scumbag, hiding behind the face of mogul. You can never undo the fact that you have 100 kids from different mothers!

  • Life is good

    Wow!! it looks like this movie deserve to be watched

  • http://none Pamela

    I want to say hello to the entire cast, I was not able to see the play so I am so looking forward to the movie. I am sure the entire cast will do justice. I am more certain that Sean Combs will do a fantastic job as I heard he had did on Broadway. Good Luck to all. Diddy I need your help on a more personal matter, If y ou could get back to me that would be a blessing.

    Thank You and God Bless

    Just watched P Ditty on a episode of Hawaii 50. Every real actor on the show put him to shame. Has he ever had an acting lesson? I don’t think so.
