Kid Cudi In 'Ninja Turtles'? Rapper Drops Hints About Potential Involvement In Michael Bay's Remake

Posted: Updated:

Kid Cudi is dropping hints about his next big project, and it might not have anything to do with his music.

The 28-year-old hip-hop artist (whose real name is Scott Mescudi) recently took to his Tumblr to post a photo of an original ninja turtle sketch he received as a gift from Andrew Form and Brad Fuller at the production company Platinum Dunes.

Form and Fuller make up two-thirds of the company; the other third is owned by Michael Bay, who is producing the upcoming live-action "Ninja Turtles" film.

Cudi ended the post by writing, "Hint hint mane."

If we're to take Cudi's post at face value, then it would appear that Cudi has been cast in Bay’s "Ninja Turtles."

Cudi is no stranger to acting. He broke into the music industry with his 2008 single “Day ‘n’ Nite,” but has since starred in a few video shorts and, most notably, the HBO series "How To Make It In America."

Cudi's insinuations are unsubstantiated thus far, but his Tumblr post wasn't the only hint he dropped.

Cudi also posted a telling tweet about the latest film in the TMNT franchise, implying that he knew a bit more than the masses.

Whether or not Cudi signed on to play a role or provide a soundtrack for the upcoming film is anybody's guess, but he certainly seems excited about the possibility.

Until Bay takes to his website again, it looks like TMNT fans will be in the dark about Cudi's potential participation in the reboot.

What say you TMNT fans: Would Cudi be a good addition to the cast? What role should he play?
