Billy Dee Williams stars in Snoop Dogg film

Billy Dee Williams will be hitting the screen with rap star Snoop Doggy Dogg in 2006. "Hood of Horror" is classified as "a hip-hop horror anthology," according to the IMDb. Williams, our own Brady Lloyd of "Dynasty," plays Pastor Charlie in the film, directed by Stacy Title. The Snoopster serves as executive producer of the movie, which also stars "Seinfeld" alum Jason Alexander.

Williams has, in recent years, co-authored a science-fiction novel, "PSI/Net," and, when BRB interviewed him back in 1999, he had just been working with a website, Art in the Dark, to showcase his paintings. Looks like the site no longer exists, though you can still find the book on Amazon.

Another interesting little tidbit, by the way, from the IMDb: Williams and his "Dynasty" costar, Diahann Carroll, attended the New York City High School for the Performing Arts together.
