Nick Cannon, Charlamagne Tha God, Nessa and Dan Soder on set.
A few months ago, Charlamagne Tha God braved the “Wild ’N Out” stage, and now, Nick Cannon’s returning the favor. Tonight, the host with the most will appear on an all-new episode of “Charlamagne and Friends,” and in this sneak peek, Nick validates some rumors about a project of his that longtime fans of the triple threat will be super happy to hear: “Drumline 2″ is in the works, y’all! Is it too meta to request a marching band to celebrate the news?
In the video, C Tha God asks Nick if there’s any truth to the gossip that he’s planning a follow-up film to his 2002 flick, “Drumline.” Nick admits that the sequel question comes up often, and takes the opportunity to drop some big news. “I can announce it now,” he says. “It’s officially happening.” Man, Charlamagne really knows how to get inside people’s heads!
Since 12 years have passed since the original film premiered, though, Nick admits he has no intention of acting like a college kid in the sequel. “I’m not in it,” he insists, adding that he’s only planning to produce, and even hopes to take “Drumline” to the airwaves, as well.
“My whole goal is to do the ’Drumline’ TV show,” he says. So, when is the Nick Cannon Network launching?
Check out the clip, and don’t miss “Charlamagne and Friends” tonight at 11:30/10:30c on MTV2!
