*WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!*
Pop culture aficionados will know it’s hard to go a day without hearing the name DJ Khaled these days. He’s involved in a ton of projects at the moment, and Khaled even has a cameo in Pitch Perfect 3. According to one of the film’s stars, Brittany Snow, even the cast found his involvement delightfully unexpected.
Khaled apparently plays a semi-exaggerated version of himself, running the contest that the Bellas reunite for. Also according to Bustle, fictionalized Khaled is supposedly on the hunt for an opening act for his tour.
Snow noted that Khaled’s role was initially supposed to be more of a cameo but gradually got bigger and bigger. As Khaled noted in a recent Instagram caption, his role became “MAJOR.”
Snow also said that he pretty much improvised all his line. “It really works,” Snow said, “he’s just doing him.”
Okay, we’re officially intrigued, and this gives us yet another reason to be psyched for this movie. Pitch Perfect 3 opens in theaters December 22nd, and — needless to say — we can’t wait.
