Kid Cudi's made a name for himself as an actor in recent years, appearing in the likes of Don't Look Up, We Are Who We Are and Westworld, and he's set to add another acting credit to his CV.
He's one of the stars of A24's Ti West-directed slasher film X, alongside Brittany Snow, and the pair have revealed that he'll be starring in September 17th, Brittany's directorial debut.
Speaking to Variety about the film, Brittany revealed, “I can’t really speak to it too much, except that Scott’s doing a part in the movie, so that’s cool. Kid Cudi added, “I couldn’t believe that she wanted me in it.
"She had told me about the movie while we were on set [for X], but she never asked me to be in it. I was like, ‘Maybe she’s waiting to see how [X] turns out.’ It’s gonna be awesome. Really great script.”
According to Variety, September 17th "follows a woman. named Riley, who struggles with food and body image issues and has recently been discharged from rehab. She soon meets Ethan and must navigate the line between unconditional love and a new addiction." We're intrigued.
Not one to stay still for too long, Kid Cudi's also launching an animated series on Netflix later this year. Entergalactic is set to be based on his upcoming album of the same name. The album and the series will be released simultaneously, and it's recommended that you watch the series first and listen to the album second.
