Sean “Diddy” Combs is set to play attorney Derek Powell on ‘CSI Miami’ – but it seems the music mogul was looking for just the right part.
“I don’t want to play no musician, I don’t want to play a criminal, Diddy told People. “None of those stereotypical things. I want to play a lawyer.”
While Combs is as high profile as you can get in the music business, he’s humbled to have spent time on the ‘CSI: Miami’ set.
“The CSI: Miami team is like the Yankees. Me coming on the set, I’m like a Little League player with the Yankees. [David Caruso], he’s like Obi-Wan Kenobi or something! He taught me so much and let me ask questions and protected me. He’s like the coach of the team.”
The episode will air in February 2009.
