Percy “Romeo” Miller has been quite the jack-of-all-trades in the last couple years, juggling music and acting careers with playing basketball and being a student at the University of Southern California.
When MTV News caught up to the multi-hyphenate to find out what film is his pick for Best Movie at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, he revealed a bit of a bias — because he’s in talks for a part in “Breaking Dawn.”
“The one thing is, I might be in the last ‘Twilight,’ so I’m going to have to go with ['New Moon' to win over 'Avatar'],” he said, ready to give Team Edward and Team Jacob a fight. “That’s a little secret out there to all the ladies. Will y’all be Team Romeo?”
Romeo said he’s talking about taking on a small role in the last of a possible two films being made out of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling book. “We’re talking to some of the executive producers right now,” he said. “It’s a small [role], but you might see me in there.”
The former Nickelodeon star said he’s ready to give muscled-up werewolf Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) some competition. “I’ve been working on my physique, I’m getting ready,” he said proudly, lifting up his sleeve to show off a bicep. “Team Romeo is here, baby.”
In the meantime, Romeo is busy promoting a new album due in July and the horror movie “The Pig People,” set in his native Louisiana. It’s a movie Romeo described as both “spooky and sexy” that revolves around creepy half-pig creatures that go on a murderous rampage in a small town. The film also stars Romeo’s dad, Master P.
