One of our favorite moments in all of 2009 came when we laid eyes on this video of Sean Combs selling his wares on the Home Shopping Network. “Wow!” we thought. “It doesn’t get much lower than this!” Only, people, it has gotten way better than that. Because tonight, the artist formerly known as Diddy will appear on the once-revered, now-train-wrecky show, Inside The Actor’s Studio. (Which coincidentally airs on the once-revered, now train-wrecky network, Bravo.)
We can’t decide what’s more amazing in this clip, how proud Combs is to create such memorable characters (such as the “tri-polar” record executive he plays in the upcoming Get Him To The Greek) or how far up Combs’ a** host James Lipton manages to crawl to praise him. Lipton also says that Combs’ appearance in the Actor’s Studio is “one of the most remarkable in the sixteen-year history of the series.” We’ll be sure to pass that note along to Meryl Streep and Al Pacino.
