Just when you thought Diddy did just about everything imaginable (except maybe sky dive or eat bizarre foods) he hits you with a message about his latest business or career move.
The music mogul / entrepreneur took to his Twitter page on Wednesday afternoon to randomly announce that he has just been added to the cast of the PBS hit series, Downton Abbey as the first African-American cast member:
MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i’ll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST! [...] I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today
Little did his excited followers know, Mr. Combs actually filmed a Funny or Die spoof where he plays Lord Wolcott, the new owner of the Downton Abbey estate. In the clip, Diddy hosts his very first All-White Party, proposes that Lord Grantham invest in a company named IBM and says a lot of funny quotes like:
“Good God have you lost yourself, man?!” – “How about a sip of some libation?” – “This fancy cake is divine. Do I detect a little nutmeg?”
And of course, bottles of Ciroc made a cameo in the show. If you’re a fan of the actual series, then peep the hilarious clip up top. Season 4 of Downton Abbey premieres on Sunday, January 5, 2014 on PBS.
