In order to slip into the character well, the rapper reportedly trained with a real Navy and took part in weapons training.
The first sneak peek of P. Diddy as an NYC cop on CBS' "Hawaii Five-0" has been released via a behind-the-scene footage. The video opens with Diddy's character Reggie Williams in an interrogation room with Alex O'Laughlin's McGarrett and moves on with a character insight from the rapper and the cast.
According to a casting news made by TV Guide, Williams visits Honolulu to hunt down the men responsible for a brutal crime against his family. But this vigilante's one-man war for justice sets him on a collision course with Team Five-0.
The official synopsis from CBS says, "When a crime lord moves against the family of an undercover NYPD detective who'd infiltrated his organization, it's up to McGarrett and Five-0 to stop the policeman from exacting revenge." Titled "Ho'opa'i (Close to Heart)", the episode which would be aired on April 18 features Diddy's songs.
