Jamie KennedySometimes actor, sometimes rapper and always funny Jamie Kennedy will soon embark on his first USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour to the Persian Gulf region to perform for service members. Kennedy will be joined by rapper Paul Wall, comedian Bill Dawes, Stu Stone, DJ Joey Nicks and breakdancer Casper on "Jamie Kennedy's Hip-Hop Comedy Tour."

Currently preparing to begin promoting his latest film, Kickin' It Old Skool, Kennedy is known for his role as Randy Meeks in Wes Craven's Scream and Scream 2, and the hit television show The Jamie Kennedy Experiment. Last spring, Kennedy produced and starred in "Blowin' Up," a comedic reality series for MTV about achieving his dreams of becoming a rapper. He also has published an autobiography "Wannabe ... A Hollywood Experiment" and toured the country performing stand-up comedy.

Paul Wall hit the scene when he appeared in "Still Tippin'," the No. 1 single from rapper Mike Jones. The single's success led to the release of The Peoples Champ, Wall's first major label album, which debuted No. 1 on the Billboard charts and reached platinum status. His sophomore album, "Get Money -- Stay True," will be released April 3. Wall also will be on the 2007 Honda Civic Tour, featuring rock band Fall Out Boy, later this year.

This tour continues the USO's tradition of bringing celebrities to troops stationed far from home.
