Controversial hip-hop star Eminem is poised for a new incarnation - as a prankster puppet.

The OSCAR-winning rapper is such a huge fan of cable network COMEDY CENTRAL's crank-calling puppet show CRANK YANKERS, he called up and requested a guest appearance.

The producers were so flattered they gave Eminem his own puppet - and the rapper proceeded to make crank calls to unsuspecting folks all over America.

A source says, "It's hilarious."
