Snoop Dogg to Play TV Dad in a Sitcom: What Took Him So Long?
Snoop Dogg is reported to play a dad on a multi-camera family sitcom that's being developed by Don Reo (creator of My Wife and Kids and The John Larroquette Show), according to Deadline.
The project has been set up at Warner Bros TV but hasn't been pitched to the networks, so it could be a while before it actually makes it to the small screen.
Snoop has appeared in various movies and TV shows before, including Old School, Starsky & Hutch, Weeds, Monk, Glee and 90210, and has played a similar role on TV on the E! reality series Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, which chronicled his family life with his wife and his three kids.
Snoop Dogg has been focusing on acting recently and was just cast in the title role in the biopic The Legend of Fillmore Slim. On TV, he did an arc on the Fox sitcom Brothers, which Reo created.
The only question we have for him is what took him so long? We can't imagine this wouldn't be a hit...kids smoking up with their dads on network TV is pure comedy gold.
