Kid Cudi is going to be a movie star...well, not exactly movies--more like television. Kid Cudi will star in a new HBO series directed by Mark Wahlberg (you may know him as Marky Mark of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch). Wahlberg also directed some episodes of the critically-acclaimed HBO series Entourage. Cudi will be credited as Scott Mescudi in the new series tentatively titled "Making It In America." He will NOT play a rapper.
