Diplo is a cool dude. From the dank memes he posts to hanging out at John Mayer's fake Vanity Fair party with Halsey to the amazing beats he cooks up in his studio, now he's found the coolest movie to become a part of - Detective Pikachu.
The live action/CGI film follows Ash Ketchum's famous sidekick, except now he's a talking detective voiced by Ryan Reynolds.
The film already looked quirky from the first trailer (though we were all pretty shook at how fluffy Jigglypuff was) and now a new trailer has dropped featuring none other than Diplo.

The famous producer seems to be DJing at some sort of Pokemon battle and he's reportedly playing himself, so we hope we can expect some solid gags from/about him.
Rita Ora is also part of the cast but her role is being kept pretty mum.
playing myself in the pokemon detective movie is the first time my kids have ever thought i’m cool https://t.co/wl27DPcBEt
