Studdard To Cameo In 'Scooby-Doo' Sequel

"American Idol" winner Ruben Studdard will appear as himself in next year's mystery-comedy "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed." The cameo has already been shot. The crooner, who defeated rival Clay Aiken last month on the Fox talent contest, said he doesn't help Scooby and his gang solve the mystery. "I'm just in at the end of the movie. I'm having a party and singing in the end," he said.

In the movie, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini confront an anonymous masked villain menacing the city of Coolsville with a machine that creates ghosts and monsters.

As previously reported, Studdard's debut J Records single, "Flying Without Wings" / "Superstar," will debut tomorrow (June 19) at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
