Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg employed bizarre tactics to secure his role on upcoming STARSKY + HUTCH movie - he pretended he already had the part.

The BEAUTIFUL rapper - who appears as police informant Huggy Bear in the film, alongside Ben Stiller and OWEN WILSON - decided he'd embarrass bosses into giving him a role.

He says, "When I heard they was in development... I put the word out that I already had the role. I forced them in a corner so they had to give it to me or they'd make themselves look bad."
