Snoop Dogg Is Also Making a Family Sitcom


Two days, two major projects for Serious Actor II, Snoop Dogg: After landing the title role in the bluesman pimp-biopic The Legend of Fillmore Slim, Snoop is also in talks to produce — and star in — a multi-cam family series. So much actorly range! He'll play the patriarch, which is familiar, if scripted, territory for the Snoop Dogg's Father Hood alum, but there's no word on whether the dad character will have any cool nicknames to rival Slim's excellent "Pope of Pimping." The Sultan of Sippy Cups? Uh, we'll work on it. [Deadline]
