Snoop Dogg would do anything to alter his appearance for a film - except cut his long hair.

The rapper is trying to expand his acting repertoire after an impressive performance in hit comedy STARSKY + HUTCH - but values his trademark flowing locks above any big screen ambitions.

The 33-year-old says, "I would gain weight, but I would never cut my hair because James Brown once told me something, 'Snoopy, let me tell you something, your hair is your strength.'"
