Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg is not only a platinum-selling hip hop and rap star, but has starred in a number of feature films and has made several television appearances. He is currently featured in his own comedy/variety show Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, on MTV and was seen on the big screen most recently as himself in Todd Phillips Old School.

Snoop Dogg was born Calvin Broadus in Long Beach, CA in October 1971. His rise to fame began in 1993 with the release of his debut album Doggystyle. Fueled by the rapper's street credentials and criminal infamy, the anticipation for the album was unprecedented - selling 1.5 million albums in advance of the release. It was the first debut rap album to hit the charts at number one. His sixth and most recent studio album is entitled Paid Tha Cost To Be Da Boss. In addition, he has contributed songs to a number of movie soundtracks including Bad Boys II, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, Dr. Dolittle 2 and Save The Last Dance.

Snoop Dogg expanded his resume to include acting in 1998 with a small role in the comedy Half Baked. He has gone on to appear in numerous feature films including John Singleton's Baby Boy, the critically acclaimed Training Day opposite Denzel Washington and The Wash with Dr. Dre. Snoop could also be heard as the voice of Ronnie Rizzat in Malibu's Most Wanted starring Jamie Kennedy. His first feature role in a major motion picture was as the title character in the urban horror film Bones, co-starring Pam Grier, in which he received very positive reviews.

Up next, Snoop stars in an urban remake of the classic comedy Airplane entitled Soul Plane.
