Master P and his son, Lil Romeo, have a sitcom debuting on Nickelodeon in Feb. 2002. "It's a modern day Partridge Family," Master P said of the new sitcom. Seems like the acting bug has really hit Master P. After he directed, produced and starred in such flicks as Bout It, Bout It, I Got Da Hook Up, MP DA Last Don as well as appearing in Gone In 60 Seconds, Master P is now trying to succeed on the big screen the way he did in the music business.
In the Spring of 2002, Master P will appear in "Dark Blue," which was originally titled "Plague Season." While the film is based on the Rodney King beatings, the executives at MGM didn't want to frighten away possible movie go'ers, afraid they would associate the films title with the current anthrax scare. The movie, which was due in theaters this past September, also features will Kurt Russell (Sgt. Eldon Perry, Jr.), Scott Speedman (Bobby Tedrow), Ving Rhames (Deputy Chief Arthur Holland), Brendan Gleeson, Kurupt and the lovely Michael Michele.
Currently P is also starring in "Popcorn Shrimp," which was written and directed by actor/director Christopher Walken (Pulp Fiction, The Opportunist), and also stars Ralph Maccio. Master P is a busy man, signing a deal with Universal to distribute his new label New No Limit. His son, Lil Romeo snagged two Billboard Awards two weeks ago, taking home awards for Rap Artist of the Year beating out fellow kiddie rapper Lil Bow Wow.
Poppa P's "Game Face" LP drops Dec. 18th.
