Kid Cudi To Star In Rom-Com ‘Two Night Stand’

WZRD rapper continues his try at acting with a Max Nichols-directed indie flick, but don't worry, new music is still coming.

Kid Cudi is taking this acting thing pretty serious. HBO may have pulled the plug on “How To Make It in America,” but that hasn’t stopped the G.O.O.D. Music talent from making strides in Hollywood now that the “Day ‘N’ Nite” singer has joined the cast of the indie romantic comedy “Two Night Stand.”

The Max Nichols-directed flick tells the story of two characters, played by Analeigh Tipton and Miles Teller, who meet online and hook up for a one-night stand, but a snow storm forces them to spend more time than they had originally planned. Cudders will play boyfriend to Tipton’s roommate, who is played by Jessica Szohr (“Gossip Girl”), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cudi also recently wrapped up “Goodbye World” with Adrian Grenier and starred in Kanye West’s “Cruel Summer” film.

Cud’s music fans have no need to worry. In June, he took to Twitter to announce his third official full-length solo studio album Indicud. “My new album is entitled indicud, it will be my version of The Chronic 2001, some songs i’ll produce, others i’ll feat &/or play songwriter,” he wrote.

With his last release, WZRD, the G.O.O.D. Music star linked with producer Dot da Genius and went in a different direction, experimenting with an edgier, more rock sound. WZRD was released in February and debuted at #3 on the Billboard chart without much of a push from the label.

“I think it definitely proves a point, that there was a method to my madness, that the kids are out there and they want the music. It’s just like a that’s-what-I-f—ing thought-type of thing,” Cudi told MTV News. “Not just to the label or whatever — I’m not going to say the label had no faith in the project — just kind of to the naysayers and people that didn’t really believe in it.”

Can’t wait for Kid Cudi’s new role, or will you pass? Tell us everything in the comments!
