The White House Down star admitted he looked to the hip-hop mogul for his portrayal of billionaire Benjamin Stacks in the upcoming musical remake, based on the 1982 film.
"And to be honest with you, I'm letting the cat out the bag just a little bit, I'm sort of mirroring Puffy a little bit," he added.
Oscar-nominated Beasts Of The Southern Wild star Quvenzhane Wallis is set to star as little orphan Annie, with Cameron Diaz as cruel orphanage owner Miss Hannigan in Will Gluck's version, produced by Jay Z and Will Smith.
Will's daughter Willow was originally in line for the title role, but Quvenzhane stepped in when she decided to leave the project.
Shooting for Annie began in September, with a release expected in December 2014.
