Jackie Long may play an egotistical hard ass in his latest big screen venture The Comebacks, but in reality, hes just a regular guy who enjoys good friends, good food and some good ol sexy music. While many may recognize his face and humorous shenanigans from supporting roles in film hits such as ATL and Idlewild, Long is determined to show his supporters that he is far more than the class clown. While he attempts to portray a tough guy in Trey Songz video for his latest single, Cant Help But Wait, he cant seen to shake that inescapable boyish charm.We caught up with the nebula to have some casual conversation, in which he expresses his love and support for T.I., addresses the rumors surrounding him and Serena Williams, and sends a fair warning out to Sean Diddy Combs. AllHipHop.com: Hey you. What have you been up to?Jackie Long: Working, working, working. My new movie, The Comebacks, just came out-which is hilarious! AllHipHop.com: Are you excited about being on the big screen again?Jackie Long: Im excited. I still get a little nervous though. I dont like to watch myself on the screen sometimes, because I know there are a lot of people out there critiquing me. But its definitely exciting. I actually just finished wrapping a movie, Doorman, starring me and Gary Dourdan. I dont know when itll be released, but yeah I play a beat boxer. AllHipHop.com: In many of your films, you tend to have a comedic role. Is that something youd like to stick to?Jackie Long: Nah, I definitely dont want to stick to it because I have too much talent to just be sticking to one thing. Im able to do everything. For instance, if you happened to see the Trey Songz video [Cant Help But Wait]; you can definitely see the other side of me.AllHipHop.com: Its weird because I wanted to laugh when I saw you in that video too. Maybe its just me.Jackie Long: See, people that know me know what type of dude I am. People that dont know me are thinking Oh my God! Who is this dude? So I dont want people that know me to think that I cant play a certain role because of how I am. Like, I dont think I was a funny guy in ATL. Some of the things I said might have been funny, but it wasnt funny like Jason Weavers role. Now in Idlewild I played the funny, over the top type. AllHipHop.com: Well its cool that you still have that light hearted quality, since becoming Hollywood, you know?Jackie Long: Yeah. My personality is always great. Youll never know when Im down. AllHipHop.com: Thats a great thing. Now we spoke briefly about your role in ATL, which starred T.I., and as Im sure you know, hes facing some serious charges. Do you guys have a personal relationship?Jackie Long: Yeah, we definitely do. AllHipHop.com: What are your personal thoughts on the entire situation?Jackie Long: I think not being a celebrity, its important to pick who you hang around. And sometimes you can be hanging around a bad person, that may not be doing anything bad, but you can still learn something good out of that. So you just have to be at the right place at the right time. And its hard, especially when a lot of people look up to you. Im not saying T.I. was hanging with the right people or wrong people, but sometimes when youre a celebrity and people arent at your status, they hate on you because they arent doing well and you are. And it all comes down to money or fame, just like Scarface-money, power, respect. And when someone dont got that, and they want it so bad, theyll do anything to hurt you. So with T.I., I wish him the best. I love that dude. I just hope he learns from his mistakes. I know T.I. is a smart dude. I know that if he did whatever he did and it was wrong, he knows its wrong. And if it was right, he knows its right. All I can say is that you have to watch what you do, say and who you hang around, because you cant trust nobody. Its a hard world when youre in the limelight. You work for AllHipHop.com; theres someone hatin on you right now. AllHipHop.com: You have a personal relationship with Diddy. How did that come about? Jackie Long: I dont know. You know how we were just talking about being around the right people, and choosing your friends? I was always the guy that kind of stayed to myself. I would see Diddy all the time, and wed speak. And I would walk away feeling like a little a** kid, like, Thats Puffy. [Laughs] But then it was like, were all the same people. Like, the first time he called me, I dont even know how he got the number, but he called me up and was like, Yo! N***a, this Diddy! I thought I was the hardest person to get a hold of. He invited me some place, and its been a few years now and weve been real close every since. Like his home is my home. Hes a good dude to be around and learn from. Hes a very smart dude and I look up to him a lot.AllHipHop.com: Okay, so about this You Tube clip y’all have on the net Jackie Long: [laughs] Man, he called me up as I was leaving the set of The Comebacks and said he was at the Jimmy Kimmel and for me to come through. So I went through. We were chillin, and then I took my hat off. He was like, N***a, what in the hell is up with your head? He didnt even say hi or nothing, [he] just went straight for my hairline. But see, me and him are always talking about each other, doing what boys do. That was a good day. He got me that day with the forehead. Its cool! You got me on that one Diddy. I got you on the next one.[Story continues below…]AllHipHop.com: Now whats this I hear about you and Ms. Serena Williams?Jackie Long: I dont even want to talk about it. Not true.
