Rapper-turned-actor Snoop Dogg has announced plans to play late jazz legend Miles Davis in a biopic.

The hip-hop star, real name CALVIN BROADUS, is hoping movie bosses in Hollywood will get on board and aid him in his efforts to play the trumpeter, who died in 1991 at the age of 65.

He says, "I'm trying to do the Miles Davis story. I wanna play Miles Davis and bring him back to life. It's happening right now as we speak."
