Paul Krugman and P. Diddy….Together In A Movie??

(Before It's News)

Yes, I’m talking about a cameo by the Nobel Prize winner, famed economist and New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman and Sean P. Diddty in an upcoming summer comedy with enough sex and drugs to kill a small commune–”Get Him To The Greek.” (Trailer below, and I’m quoting from some of the movie reviews since I’ve not seen the movie.)

The story line goes something like this: An ambitious young record company executive (P. Ditty) attempts to transport an unpredictable rock star, Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) to L.A.’s Greek Theatre in time for his hotly anticipated comeback performance. 

Critic’s reviews are mixed so far.  Below is one from MSN, so you’ll get the idea.

“…Aldous is interviewed by Meredith Vieira, whose other guest is economist and New York Times writer Paul Krugman. Vieira and Krugman are stiff and slightly embarrassed and given the circumstances — Hill has trails of vomit on his clothing by this point — this is a sensible reaction. They probably signed on thinking this would be the next “Hangover” or “Pineapple Express.” Not so much.”

Since a moderator during a discussion at the London School of Economics once introduced him as “rock star”, perhaps this is just one attempt of Krugman to cement that image

I’m sure Krugman’s MIT mentor Jagdish N. Bhagwati, who expressed his disappointment of his former student in a World Affairs article, would be immensely pleased with Krugman taking on a new Hollywood career.

I personally can’t wait to see Faber and Roubini in a doomed Armageddon sci-fi flick.
