You may best know him as hip-hop artist Kid Cudi — and rightfully so — but Scott Mescudi, the actor, is pretty cool too.
The Cleveland native first hit the music scene in the 2000’s, releasing his debut album — Man on the Moon: The End of Day — in 2009. From the get go, there was no question that the entertainer was a talented musician; having said that, I don’t believe anyone was aware of just how gifted Kid Cudi was all-around.
Meet Scott Mescudi…
As an actor, the now 30-year old’s first feature role was on HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” as rugged free spirit Domingo Brown. Mescudi portrayed the character from 2010-11 — as long as the show lasted.
Since, Mescudi has been featured in a pair of short films — one directed by Shia LaBeouf (Maniac), and the other by Kanye West (Cruel Summer). However, it is 2014 that will undoubtedly serve to be the entertainer’s breakthrough year, on-screen.
First up, Mescudi will co-star in the upcoming action-drama Need for Speed — alongside Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul, and Dominic Cooper. The film hits theaters March 14. Shortly thereafter, Mescudi co-stars in another thrilling drama, entitled Goodbye World. The film also stars Entourage phenom Adrian Grenier, Mark Webber and Gaby Hoffman.
Of Mescudi’s several upcoming films, the one SCO is most eager for is Two Night Stand — which is still awaiting an official release date. A romantic comedy, the film also features rising Hollywood star Miles Teller, and Jessica Szohr of Gossip Girl fame.
Although even with all the actor has had on his plate, the musician has been hard at work as well. Mescudi recently confirmed on his Twitter account that he will be releasing his fourth studio album — Satellite Flight — sometime this month.
Bracing for a whirlwind 2014, Scott Mescudi is set to become a household name.
