Diddy is first and foremost a rap mogul, but he's broadening his horizons these days and even has a new movie role. He stars alongside Russell Brand in upcoming flick Get Him to the Greek, was also asked to be featured in an episode of Inside the Actors Studio -- but he's having a hard time believing it because he says he's not the best actor. However, he's working on changing that.

He said: "They have been calling me for the last three years to do it, and I was kind of nervous and said, 'I'm not at that level.’ I'm looking at Meryl Streep up there, and Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino and Denzel Washington and Chris Rock.

They were saying they wanted to take it from a different perspective of somebody on the rise. I appreciated that. After doing Broadway and now with Get Him to the Greek coming out... the time is right. I still have fears though, I still have insecurities.”

However, Diddy, who made his film debut in Monster’s Ball in 2001 and appeared on the New York stage in a production of A Raisin in the Sun in 2004,  thinks things can only get better for him after showing his comedic talents as a record label boss in Get Him to the Greek.
He added to MTV News: "It was definitely challenging, but I had a breakthrough in this new movie. I have to admit, I just let go and I showed my a*s, people! It's funny. I'm not the greatest actor in the world, but I'm on my way to greatness!"
