Badboy rapper and actor Snoop Dogg has added his own distinctive style to the character of super-snitch HUGGY BEAR in the new movie version of seventies TV show Starsky And Hutch.

The BEAUTIFUL singer says the original character was "kinda square" so he decided to make him more contemporary.

Snoop says, "I took the good that he had when he was on TV and mixed it with the good that I do and just made it more along the edges of what people really want to see on the big screen from a Huggy Bear character."

But respectful Snoop still tips his hat to actor Antonio Fargas, who originally played the role in the hit TV series.

He says, "He paved the way, but at the same time it's all about me trying to take the role to the next level, and educate the kids who've never seen Starsky and Hutch."
