Rap mogul Sean Combs is eager to test his comedy credentials with a cameo role on hit U.S. TV series 30 ROCK.
The hip-hop star loves the Tina Fey-created show and has become pals with 30 Rock funnymen Tracy Morgan and Jack MCBrayer.
And he's been lobbying the stars for a guest spot on the programme.
MCBrayer says, "He is a big fan of 30 Rock and he's like, 'Can I be in the show?' and I was like, 'What if we played best friends?'"
Combs has previously showed off his acting skills with roles in 2008 TV movie A Raisin in the Sun, based on the play by Lorraine Hansberry, and a two-episode stint on TV crime drama CSI: Miami earlier this year (09).
