Cedric the Entertainer to star in 'Hot in Cleveland' spinoff

Move over, Betty White — Cedric the Entertainer is about to get "Hot in Cleveland."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the comedian will appear in episodes of the popular TV Land show this summer before getting his own spinoff.

The upcoming series will see Cedric playing a minister who gets caught up in the adventures of the "Hot in Cleveland" cast, which includes White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves.

"Cedric is hilarious and I'm so happy to do this show with him," said Suzanne Martin, the creator, writer, and executive producer of "Hot in Cleveland." "We are going to have a lot of fun developing and exploring his role as a minister."

Besides starring in the untitled TV Land series, Cedric will also act as one of the writers.

Are you looking forward to Cedric's spinoff?

    At first, I thought, how can he star in this when he's already dead? Then I realized it was Bernie Mac that died. Whatever, they all look the same to me.
