Sean “Diddy” Combs may not be venturing too far outside his comfort zone in his upcoming movie role in Get Him to the Greek—Puff plays a record exec named Sergio Roma—but the entertainer got a big cosign from costarring funny man Jonah Hill

“He’s awesome in it,” Hill told VIBE last month at the Sundance Film Festival, speaking on his onscreen boss. “He’s so funny. Yeah, he’s great.”

While out in Utah for Sundance, Hill made his debut at one of Diddy’s fabled “white parties,” whose guests included the likes of Mariah CareyDemi MooreAshton Kutcher, and Khloe Kardashian.

“It was the first time and possibly the last time,” Hill recalled.” It’s a little big and crazy; there’s a lot going on there.”

Get Him to the Greek, in which Hill stars as a record label intern accompanying Brit rock star (played by Russell Brand) to a concert, hits theaters June 4. —Caroline Acosta, with additional reporting by Jamal Munnerlyn
