Snoop Dogg to Star in Guitarist-Pimp Biopic

Vulture is still waiting for our signed copy of the Wiz Khalifa–Snoop Dogg direct-to-DVD feature High Times, but Snoop is wasting no time with his Serious Acting career: He's just signed up for The Legend of Fillmore Slim, a biopic based on the life of blues guitarist and San Francisco pimp Clarence Sims. Snoop will play Sims, who was better known as Slim, "the West Coast Godfather of the Game," or "the Pope of Pimping." Justin Timberlake is currently trying to imagine cool czar-based nicknames for his next movie. [Deadline]
