BURBANK, Calif. (AP) _ Sean ``Puffy'' Combs would like to thank the Academy.

The rap mogul has his first movie role _ a small part as a Manhattan gangster in the upcoming crime comedy ``Made'' _ but he fully expects to win not one, but two Oscars someday.

``You know, I don't want to come off cocky or arrogant, but I'm gonna really (work hard) to be the best actor that I can be and I gotta set my goals and my dreams high,'' Combs, 31, said on ``Access Hollywood'' Tuesday night.

``And then we can play this (interview) back the night when I win my first one. And we can just be like, I really worked hard for it.''

``Made,'' written and directed by Jon Favreau, who also co-stars, is due in theaters July 13.
