Dizzee Rascal To Star In The New Inbetweeners Sitcom

March 16, 2011
Dizzee Rascal To Star In The New Inbetweeners SitcomDizzee Rascal could be set to star in a new sitcom from the creators of Inbetweeners, it has been revealed.

The rapper, who is currently working on his follow-up to 2009's 'Tongue N' Cheek', is said to be in talks with the Inbetweeners creators Damon Beesley and Ian Morris to star in a sitcom based around his life.

A source told The Sun: "Damon and Iain like the idea of making a funny show about a rapper. Urban artists are usually portrayed in negative or bleak circumstances but they want to do something different."

"Dizzee is a big personality with loads of charisma and the writers think he would be the ideal subject for the show. It's just a question of whether or not he has the acting ability to pull it off."

Meanwhile, Cheryl Cole has decided to cancel the release of her duet with Dizzee Rascal.
