Scandal star Guillermo Diaz loves to boast about going "on tour" with Jay Z and Beyonce, despite missing out on the chance to meet the hip-hop supercouple while filming their On The Run tour movie.

The actor, who previously appeared alongside Britney Spears in her 2011 promo for I Wanna Go, was cast alongside Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively and Emmy Rossum in the crime-themed short, which featured Jay Z and Beyonce as gun-toting fugitives.

The four-minute film, set to the sounds of their duet Part Ii (On The Run), was screened to fans attending the musicians' joint concert tour over the summer (14), and although Diaz is proud to have taken part in the project, he regrets not having the opportunity to meet the famous couple face-to-face.

He explains, "I thought I was gonna get to meet them, I was chasing them in the video, and I showed up to set and they told me they had wrapped the day before, so I never got to meet Beyonce and Jay Z.

"But it was amazing. The video was part of the tour so I was on tour with them for months! Didn't make all the money they made, but... it was awesome, such an amazing experience.

"I'm so lucky, Britney Spears and Beyonce... it's all good."
