Diddy on 'Downton'? Sort of
"Downton Abbey" has added a ton of new actors to its cast for season four, and some fans might've thought Sean "P. Diddy" Combs was among them.
The music mogul (and hip-hop's wealthiest) sent out a flurry of tweets on Wednesday that suggested he was the newest resident of "Downton," along with a supposed picture of himself on set:
"I have to admit that 'Downton Abbey' is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today," he posted Wednesday. "MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i'll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!"
But then PBS, which airs the hit British series in the States, went on the record saying that the Diddy on "Downton" casting just wasn't true.
As it turns out, the mogul *has* been cast ... but in a Funny Or Die spoof of the period drama (which has strong language). The nearly five-minute clip jokes about "Downton's" recent casting of its first black character, Gary Carr. Diddy, a self-professed "Abbey-head" who still can't help but call it "Downtown" instead of "Downton," says he broke that barrier first:
Downton Diddy from Sean Combs
Season four of "Downton Abbey," sans Diddy, will premiere January 5.

Their comments are disgusting, I can just imagine how they were brought up.
Apparantly there is going to be a black man in the next series of Downton Abbey – I dont know why they thought they had to do this, he certainly isnt going to improve the series.

Is Diddy going to be playing the British version of Benson?
puffy is a huge success i wish him all the best
He's a huge something.
A huge turd. He's trying to be James Franco. Tired of his face popping up everywhere like beyonce.
Hahahaha! He IS a turd, an overexposed turd.
I like puffies. Pokies too.
Lot of angry broke m0r0ns below
WHEN, oh WHEN, will these crass, vulgar, uneducated d-bags no longer be headlines. I shudder at the thought that people like him (LA family, whose name I REFUSE to speak) are admired and emulated by our young people. No wonder this country's in the toilet.
This country is 'in the toilet' because people are too lazy and stupid to do what needs to be done. Like voting out the ignoramuses in government and refusing to buy/support greedy corporations like Monsanto.
blah blah blah.
I have a strong desire to drop a corn studded trouser Twinkie squarely on P Diddy's face.
And then you eat it.
Awesome! He has a great sense o humor. I LOVE "Diddy" he is great, I would love yo have him as my employer!!!! BRILLIANT! I had a great time watching it! I am a housekeeper myself and I it is a very hard job....I never watch this show....it gives me butterflies in my stomach...It is a good show! Don't take me wrong!
Me too. I clean offices. It's fun. You meet alot of nice peoples.
"I never watch this show..." then. "It is a good show!" If you never watch the show, idiot, how can you even form an opinion about its quality?
Print and file....viewed as ignorable....thanks

Why do Black people choose such ridiculously funny names for themselves?
My moms give me this name and it isn't funny. It's a proud African American name that reflects my heritage. Our culture is strong and wonderful, rich with science and literature. Our peoples be decendents of the kings and queens of Africa. The birthplace of civilization.
Qwaneesha isn't a name. It was your mother's feeble attempt to spell "Mary".
THIS IS ABOUT P.DIDDLE A GOOD ACTOR.

Whoop ! President Obama is looking sharp in this photo ! He looks great in a tux ! Wish he could run for prez a third time. He a fine looking man.
I agree girlfriend.
Who give a hoot-n-hell what "Diddy" has to say. I personally think he should change his name to "P. Dummy."
I love the feeling you get when you need to poop. It just feels good.
I like the feeling AFTER you've pooped and neglected to wipe – that squishy, itchy feeling between your cheeks...mmm.
You like the caked effect? I prefer smudges on my face – people just don't know how to react! I also love letting one out when im sleeping with someone for the first time. I love to see their reaction.
I enjoy pooping in the shower and pushing it down the drain with my big toe.
