The Day 'n' Nite hitmaker, real name Scott Mescudi, has landed several appearances in TV and movie projects, including Need for Speed and the Entourage film, since 2010, and he had hoped to step up his acting career by scoring a role in the highly-anticipated space series, but he was unsuccessful.

Cudi revealed the news to fans on after a user told him he would be good in the new movie, replying, "I auditioned!! That whole experience alone was wild. Happy I was able to get in the room and try! Blessed!"

The film is set for release in December (15).
