Lottery Ticket premiere Bow Wow hit the "Lottery Ticket" red carpet Thursday in Hollywood to launch his star vehicle, accompanied by the likes of Brandon T. Jackson, Naturi Naughton, Ice Cube, Keith David and Terry Crews outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

"I'm just on a roll," Bow Wow told KABC. "I just want to be the next Will Smith. That's all I want to be." (He also had a tip on Twitter to fans who might try to follow in his footsteps.)

Director Erik White, writer Abdul Williams and producer Jermaine Dupri made the scene, along with, to name a few, Bill Bellamy, Vince Green, Leslie Jones, Charlie Murphy, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Teairra Mari, P. Diddy, "House of Payne" star Lance Gross and "The Blind Side" star Quinton Aaron, whose red carpet appearance frequency is becoming truly impressive.

"Lottery Ticket," about a guy in the projects who holds a you-know-what worth $370 million, opens in U.S. theaters on Aug. 20.
