Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may not be poppin’ out babies right now, but it’s gonna happen.

“We’re definitely into planning a family and stuff but when everything calms down and we get the time,” Cannon told me earlier today after finishing up a workout at Gatorade’s G Gym at Village at the Yard at Sundance. “We’re just running and gunning now and enjoying being newlyweds.”

Also on the couple’s agenda? Working together! But not on a musical collaboration. So what gives?

“It’ll be something more out of fun than serious,” Cannon said. “We’re going to do some comedy stuff together. You’ll see us this year doing some really funny stuff.”

Cannon is not only deejaying tonight’s House of Hype party for Carey’s new movie, Push, but he also has his own flick at Sundance to promote, the indie psycho-thriller The Killing Room.

He plays a young homeless guy opposite Chloë Sevigny and Timothy Hutton. “It was my first real chance to be a serious method actor,” Cannon said. “I lost like 20 pounds for the role. I didn’t eat. I slept outside. I didn’t comb my hair for a month. I went into seclusion.”

(He’s not expecting his wife to dig Killing too much because “she likes fun, lighthearted comedies.”)

And after the film festival, it’s off to Washington, D.C., for the Inaugural and some big dreams. Cannon laughed, “I want to be the official White House deejay.”
