Hollywood Shuffle: Nas Has The Vapors? Lauryn as Mrs. Marley? Shar Defends K-Fed

Now that the Grammy’s, Academy Awards and the writer’s strike are all over, the

new talk of the town ‘round here in Hollywood has actually turned to the Lakers

and their winning streak.

 

Popularity is key, as it seems like half the crowd at a Lakers’ game is made up of celebrities instead of real

fans. What do you make of that?

 

Fortunately, we always have a lot to talk about, so let’s let the Hollywood Shuffle begin!

Nas rumored for The Vapors movie

It’s

all rumor at this point, but it’s been talked about that Nas might be playing

the role of Kool G Rap for the upcoming biopic The Vapors, which is based on the lives of the famous Hip-Hop

collective The Juice Crew.

 Many rumors

have been surfacing about this movie that have proven untrue though. David

Banner was said to play the role of Biz Markie, but that was discredited. Other rumored cast members include Idris Elba as Fly Ty and Julito McCullum as

Tragedy Khadafi.

Thus far, Cuba Gooding Jr. is confirmed to play

Marley Marl, along with Talib Kweli as Scott La Rock, Clifton Powell as Mr. Magic, Jackie Long as Big Daddy Kane, Evan Ross as MC Shan and Keke Palmer will be Roxanne Shante. Big Daddy Kane also recently signed on as an Executive Producer for the film alongside Marley Marl and Roxanne Shante.

 

Shar Jackson defends an overweight K-Fed

Even after

all that K-Fed put her through, Shar Jackson is still sticking up for her former man.

Recently pics of an overweight Kevin Ferderline surfaced the net. Shar’s

response?

“It’s daddy weight! When you are a full time parent, sometimes you

can’t focus on you. If gaining a few pounds is your only problem, life’s not

too bad! He’s a stay-at-home dad, and people tend to gain weight when they are

home with the kids. He’s very happy with the way he looks.”

 

Shar is

being way too nice if you ask me. I know deep inside she is saying “This is

what you get for leaving me, you fat a**!!”

 Bob Marley movie finally in the works, Lauryn

Hill to star?

Bob Marley’s

widow Rita Marley has finally released the movie rights to her book No Woman, No Cry, which is based on her

life with Bob. Mrs. Marley will be on board as an executive producer to the

movie, and will be an integral part of the casting and movie-making decisions.

 

Rita even

went so far to say that she would love Lauryn Hill to play her in the movie.

Rumors have the likes of Ben Harper to play Bob. No official word on any

casting yet.  

You could be in the Notorious B.I.G. movieAs AllHipHop.com

reported last week, Jamal Woolard a.k.a. Gravy has been cast as the lead to

play the Notorious B.I.G.

 

Now the

production company is out there looking for extras to be featured in the movie

- specifically people who look like rappers, thugs, hot girls,

crackheads, big beefy security/bouncer types, basketball players, students, and

lookalikes for Jay-Z, Mary J Blige, former Mayor David Dinkins, Busta Rhymes,

Craig Mack, DJ Mister Cee, DJ Enuff, Faith Evans, Total and Charlie Baltimore.

 

If you think you can make the cut, e-mail your head and body shots to TECCASTING@gmail.com for a shot. I’m just dying to see the casting auditions for the part of Busta Rhymes. Wooohah!

Wooohah!

 

J-Lo kinda spoils her new kids…with diamond

encrusted baby rattles

Now

that Jennifer Lopez has delivered her twins, she can now continue the celebrity tradition

of spoiling them rotten. Rumors have surfaced that J-Lo has hired an entire

“baby team” which includes a baby masseuse, a color therapist (whatever that

is), $1000 sheets and even diamond encrusted baby rattles.

 

Well, her

babies better not come around the hood…. someone would jack those baby rattles

in a second! Shoot…I’ll settle for them nice sheets. Egyptian cotton is niiice.

Toccara back for Celebrity Fit Club

Oh

Toccara…you make my job worth it. The vixen who has graced the

covers of magazines such as King and Smooth first made her mark by appearing

in reality shows such as America’s Next

Top Model and Celebrity Fit Club. She also became an on-air personality  for BET.

 

Well, now

she’s back in a new season of Celebrity

Fit Club: Boot Camp where the challenge is to lose 10-20 lbs with the goal

to “burn fat, get buff and look better naked.” I’m really excited to see if she

achieves that last goal there. Go Toccara!

 

Kimora Lee Simmons’ demands

No

edition of Hollywood Shuffle would be complete without some dirt of Kimora

Lee Simmons. Maybe Kimora and J-Lo should hang out more together. Word is that

Kimora makes some pretty lavish requests when making any public appearances.

 

Insider

sources say, “She demands that someone stand by and refill her champagne glass

whenever it gets below one inch, that the water is Fiji only and that the place

provide fans that blow on her in case it gets hot.”

 

Simmons’ rep

said, “She does only drinks Fiji Water, but these reports are completely false

and inaccurate.”
