Time for more Hollywood news coming straight at ya from the Hollywood Shuffle.
week we can finally stop talking about Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds and
focus on some good stuff, including Akons new movie, Jamie Foxxs rumored hosting gig on Charm School 2 and Tyra
Banks upcoming marriage. Let the good times roll .
Denzel voted #1 Hollywood
star in the U.S.
to a recent online survey taken by official poll takers Harris Poll, Denzel
Washington has been named the #1 most popular movie star in America. Tom Hanks
was #2, Johnny Depp #3, Julia Roberts (who?) #4, and Big-Willy-Style Will Smith
#5. Denzels recent hit American Gangster
along with the critically acclaimed The
Great Debaters showed there is no slowing down for Mr. Washington. Look out for another big hit
with Denzels next movie co-starring John Travolta called Taking of the Pelham.
Akon to star in
martial arts film Slums 13
Akon has plenty of experience throwing fans off stage, surprisingly he will not
be taking part in any action scenes for his film debut Slums 13. The movie takes place and is shot entirely in Atlanta,
and combines hardcore martial arts with an urban twist. It will most likely be
a limited release, and stars many African-American martial artists. Hopefully
Akon is not taking any lessons his fans might even have more to worry about.
Tyra Banks ready to marry 50 year old
Tyra has issues committing to what wig she wants to wear for the day,
apparently she has no issues with the biggest commitment of all marriage.
Rumor has it that the 34-year-old Tyra is tired of her single life, and wants
to take the next step with her current boyfriend, 50-year-old banker John
Utendahl. Note to John: when you were twenty-one and in college, Tyra was five
years old and in kindergarten.
Hip-Hop invades Sundance Film Festival
There was a
time when the Sundance Film Festival was reserved for upper-middle class film
aficionados who only cared about one thing – indie movies. Times have changed.
This years Sundance Film Festival, which concluded Sunday 1/27, was definitely
the year that Hip-Hop came to town.
50 Cent was
on hand to announce his highly-publicized venture into film production, and he
threw a party and dinner as well. Lil Jon was the guest DJ at the Boost Mobile
Party, Method Man turned the charm on to promote his new movie The Wackness, Mos Def did the same for Be Kind Rewind – and of course Diddy had
to make his moves, as his TV movie A
Raisin In The Sun premiered at the festival. Seems like the only ones
missing were Jay-Z, Kanye and Pharrell.
Jamie Foxx rumored to host Charm School
2 reality show
Foxx is rumored to join the reality TV show club as the host of VH1s Charm School 2: From Gs to Gents.
Season 2 will start filming in Los Angeles next month and will star 15 past
contestants from Seasons 1 and 2 of I
Love New York. Along the lines of Season 1, which was hosted by comedienne
MoNique and won by former Flavor of Love
contestant Saaphyri, it will be Jamies job to turn these crazy ass dudes into
distinguished gentlemen. The winner will receive 50 Gs.
rumors are true then it seems like a step down for the Academy Award winner I
mean this is Jamie Foxx here not Gary Coleman. It would be like Dr. Dre hosting
the next season of Flavor of Love.
