The producers of extremely popular Masterpiece Theatre soap opera Downton Abbey told fans they were adding their first black character for the show's fourth season. If Diddy's tweet is to be believed, he'll be playing that role, a jazz musician Jack Ross. Apart from the promised "sneak preview," you're still going to have to wait a while, as Season Four won't premiere until season which will premiere January 5, 2014 when it will be back for eight episodes.

UPDATE: PBS denies Diddy's involvement in Downton Abbey! NY Mag says, "Diddy, meanwhile, is still retweeting various congratulation posts, as if this is really a thing. Maybe he just read The Secret?"

Diddy even posted a "sneak peak" picture to Instagram, ha. Maybe a Funny or Die video is on the way?

UPDATE: Yep, that's exactly what it is.

In England Diddy's still the hype.

Learn to act would be a good start (and I totally agree with the above comment on making good music.) He plays himself (and not even good at that) in everything, regardless of the character.
Why or how this man made it to the stature he is, is beyond me.
(and it would be nice if you quit talking about Kanye , Diddy, Beyonce and all that crap.. let mainstream crap follow them, there is good music you could be focusing on posting about.)

Wow... quite amazing that this part of history is so overlooked. Thank you for posting this. Amazing how the abolition and increased rights for house maids are still being debated even to this day, of course, todays' maids and cooks are from other nations, but still the discuss still goes on. One would think that things have improved, but in reality they haven't. Also I love the correlation between the rights of house maids' rights has helped make improvements in home sanity conditions or bring into light the importance of sanity conditions for all workers, not just those within hospitals, factories and stores.
