Celebrity Favorites: Bryan Greenberg and Victor Rasuk
Scott “[artist id="3066140"]Kid Cudi[/artist]” Mescudi has already mastered music. Next up: acting. According to his “How to Make It in America” co-stars Bryan Greenberg and Victor Rasuk, fans will see Cudi’s onscreen growth in season two of the HBO series.
“He has his head on straight. He really saw what an amazing opportunity this was,” Greenberg told MTV News on the set of “How to Make It.” “My hat goes off to him because he is fully focused, and they wrote a lot more for him this season.”
Cudi, who plays party guy Domingo in the New York-based series, had a limited role in the first season, but Rasuk promises fans they will see more of the lonely stoner when the show returns to HBO this fall. “Definitely, for sure, Kid Cudi stepped up on season two on all different levels,” he said. “He definitely has a lot more, and his character is involved a lot more.”
Though he has given Mescudi acting advice, Greenberg takes no credit for the work the G.O.O.D. Music artist has put in, and Greenberg, who has a musical side himself, picked up quite a bit from Cudi in the studio. “I learned from him on the music tip when he came in and did that track for me, ‘You Can Run.’ It was on my record,” Greenberg said of the song that appeared on his 2011 album, We Don’t Have Forever. “It was just amazing because I thought he was going to come in and rap, and he just came in and started singing, and I was like, ‘OK.’ And then I heard it back, and I’m like, ‘Awesome.’ ”
Fans of the show shouldn’t expect Cudi’s musical influence to rub off on Rasuk, however. “I’m a fan. I have no music,” he said. “I can dance though.”
