Wu-Tang Clan member and aspiring actor Method Man is working on a new album - with help from his friends.

The LP will feature other members of the Clan and a host of secret stars.

He is also teaming up with American Idol contestant TAMYRA GRAY on high school TV drama BOSTON PUBLIC.

Method will play a record producer who is trying to sign Gray's character, AISHA, to a record deal - as well as attempting to romance to the pretty singer.
