Kid Cudi lands role in Entourage movie

Rapper Kid Cudi is set to replace actor Rex Lee as an assistant to Jeremy Piven's character Ari Gold in the forthcoming big screen adaptation of TV hit Entourage.

Lee's character Lloyd was promoted to a talent representative in the show, and now Cudi has signed up to step into his shoes as talent executive Gold's right-hand man.

The hip-hop star, real name Scott Mescudi, is no stranger to Hollywood - he previously appeared in TV shows How to Make It in America and Brooklyn Nine-Nine and will play himself in new street racing film Need for Speed.

The Entourage movie, which stars Piven, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon, is set to hit theatres next year (15).
