Kid Cudi Wanted Scenes Of Him Kissing Another Man To Remain In "James White" Film


(AllHipHop News) Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi’s latest turn to acting has the Cleveland native playing a gay man in the new movie James White. The Josh Mond-directed drama screened at the Sundance Film Festival last week, and Cudi spoke about his part in the film during a Q&A session.

“I’m mad [Mond] cut out my kissing scenes with David [Call],” said Cudi. “We made out so many times — and it was so good! That’s my only gripe.”

Billboard also caught up with the “Day ‘n’ Nite” performer during the premiere’s red carpet. Cudi discussed how he was pleased to play a homosexual character in the Christopher Abbott led motion picture.

“This was way different than anything else I’ve ever done,” Cudi stated. “It was dope to do that. I felt like I had a responsibility to present a different walk in life from that world.”

James White does not focus on homosexuality as its main theme. The film revolves around Abbott as the title character. A Kickstarter description refers to the film as “a frenetic coming of age story about a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his reckless, self-destructive behavior in the face of momentous family challenges.”
