HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Another A-list star is visiting our islands to guest star on an episode of Hawaii Five-0. But what do you call him? Diddy? P-Diddy? Puff Daddy? Sean Combs?

Well, according the man himself, when he's acting, he told me he goes by Sean Combs. When he's singing or rapping, it's Diddy. It's reported that, in the United Kingdom and New Zealand, due to some legal issues regarding someone else with the name Diddy, he goes by P-Diddy. And then, some in his close circle call him Puffy.

So, now that that's all straightened out, we back to the reason why Sean Combs is in Hawaii. He trained at the Magnum Firearms gun range in Honolulu – in preparation for his upcoming role as an undercover cop on Five-0.

He arrived in town late Monday night and will be shooting scenes with the cast over the next few days. It's a quick trip with no time to relax.

"I haven't been able to see the sites as much as I've been able to see the people, and it's definitely a beautiful people," Combs tells me.

I said, "Listen, I'm inviting you now to come back for a vacation!"

"I need to come back for a vacation," he said. "I was only here one other time for a concert. Had to do the concert and then, I had to leave. Now, I have to shoot for four days, and then, I have to get back because we're in rehearsals. I'm about to go on tour."

Combs' episode will air sometime in the spring. We'll have more on his guest-starring role as the airdate draws near.

We're also going to be revisiting the Hawaii Five-0 set soon, and would like your help. Here's your chance to get in on the act. We would love for you to send in some questions that you would like us to ask the four main stars: Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, and Grace Park. Your questions could be part of our news story!

We invite you to send those questions to our Hawaii News Now Facebook page or email me at tokita@hawaiinewsnow.com. Don't delay!
