Kid Cudi, also known as the actor Scott Mescudi, co-stars in the film, “James White,” which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
Christopher Abbott stars as the title character who struggles to take control of his reckless life as he deals with major family challenges.
The “Day ‘n’ Nite” rapper plays his gay best friend, and he made himself clear when he spoke to Billboard about his role. He is comfortable in his own skin and is all about the art.
“My thing is what story are we trying to tell here,” Cudi said. “I didn’t flinch. I’m secure with mine. I’m an artist — it’s all about playing characters that are intriguing and stimulating.”
He revealed on Twitter there were deleted scenes from the film — including make-out sessions with a male friend and when his character comes out of the closet. He didn’t find this out until he arrived at the festival.
“When he comes out of the closet it’s not really a thing,” he said. “I think that’s something the world needs to see. ‘Cause it’s not a thing. We’re all equal. I’m mad [Mond] cut out my kissing scenes with David, We made out so many times — and it was so good! That’s my only gripe.”
