Looks like Dwayne Johnson’s next project is taking him back to his humble origins, and is further proof that either the actor/producer never sleeps, or has cloned himself at some point in the past five years.
Variety is reporting that Johnson’s next project comes in the form of a currently-untitled comedy, which has already been nabbed by Fox for a pilot commitment. This project will be produced by Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions and Will Ferrell’s Gary Sachez Productions, and will chronicle the real experiences of Johnson and former WWE head writer Brian Gewirtz.
The project was described as follows by Variety:
“The series offers a behind-the-scenes look at a fictional professional wrestling outfit and chronicles the one-of-a-kind odd couple relationship that develops between a charismatic young character, like the The Rock, and a painfully awkward comedy writer new to the world of wrestling. A fish-out-of-water »

While earlier this week we pointed out how a whole fleet of stars from Rihanna to Kim Kardashian are loving their waist-length hair, inspired by Cher’s own flawless mane, it seems that not every star has jumped aboard the long-hair-don’t-care bandwagon. Not only did Diane Kruger recently reveal a slightly shorter bob on Instagram, as didÂ Entourage star Emmanuelle Chriqui, but now it appears thatÂ America FerreraÂ is not only campaigning for Hillary Clinton, but actually turning into her.
Although Diane Kruger first teased that she’d made an alteration to her coif about a week ago, »

Chrissy MetzÂ is more likely to makeÂ youÂ cry these days on her inspiring role inÂ This Is Us, but the actress reveals she was the one dealing with the waterworks after bookingÂ her firstÂ guest-starring gig.
With a small role opposite Oscar-winning director James Cameron on a 2005 episode ofÂ Entourage, Metz told People Now on Tuesday that she was paralyzed by fear when her line turned out to be trickier on set than at the audition.

Debuting on HBO a dozen years ago, Entourage proved to be an enduring hit on the premium cable network, following Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his lifelong friends from Queens as they endeavored to carve out successful careers in the entertainment business. The comedy series was inspired by Mark Wahlberg's experiences during his early years in Hollywood. After the show completed its eighth and final season in 2011, a movie adaptation followed last year. Grenier and the other leading actors have faced a tall order in finding other distinctive roles. In between filming seasons of Entourage, Grenier appeared in smaller roles in The Devil Wears Prada and others, though he also busied himself making several documentaries. His latest starring role is now heading to...

Citing both the 1969 original and its subsequent 2003 remake as inspiration, Paramount is said to be revving up a new interpretation of The Italian Job for TV.
Deadline broke the news yesterday evening, confirming that Rob Weiss (Ballers, Entourage) and Benjamin Brand will join forces to flesh out the script, before going on to executive produce alongside Donald De Line, the producer involved in that 2003 remake headlined by Charlize Theron and Mark Wahlberg.
If you’re unfamiliar with the property, The Italian Job is a British crime caper centering on a make-shift family of expert criminals. Forced out of retirement to complete one last job – a time-honored action trope if ever there was one – their mission involves rescuing their beloved “patriarch” from a long sentence behind bars. Charlie Croker, played by Michael Caine and later Wahlberg, is the crooning ex-con at the heart of the story, with Deadline noting that the »

Another day, another reboot: NBC has given a script commitment plus penalty to The Italian Job, a potential series inspired by the 1969 film of the same name and the 2003 remake, which starred Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron, our sister site Deadline reports.
The drama project — written/executive produced by Rob Weiss (Entourage, Ballers) and Benjamin Brand (Bollywood Hero) — is described as “a noisy, sexy thrill ride” about a makeshift family of expert criminals who are forced out of retirement when an opportunity arises to get »
NBC is working on a TV version of iconic heist caper movie The Italian Job. That’s per Deadline, which says that the network has given a script commitment to a new crime drama based on the 1969 Michael Caine classic. The show is being written and produced by Ballers’ Rob Weiss, whose old Entourage co-producer Mark Wahlberg starred in the original’s 2003 remake.
NBC is promising a “noisy, sexy, thrill-ride” with its new show, along with—presumably—a whole host of product placement for BMW’s Mini Cooper. Coopers—originally produced by the British Motor Corporation—were a key component of the climax of both films, with the Quincy Jones-scored Cooper chase from the original a regular entry in lists of the best cinematic car chases of all time.
A sequel to the 2003 film, tentatively titled The Brazilian Job, has been in the works for years, but ...

How will the heist film classic translate to the small screen? NBC is planning to find out...
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that NBC has given a script commitment to a TV series based on The Italian Job. The show will follow a found family of expert criminals who come out of retirement to try to save their beloved patriarch from jail. Like the previous films, the TV show will feature the character of Charlie Croker at its centre, a criminal trying to go straight, but who can't help but get pulled back into this adrenaline-fuelled world of high-stakes crime. You know how it is.
Unlike the movies, it seems that the show will feature a prison break rather than a heist. But, hey, who says we can't have both? According to the report, the show hopes to "preserve the action, humour, romance and picturesque international locales from the movies. »

When you think Mandy Moore, early 2000s probably comes to mind. She was everywhere. Mandy popped up in The Princess Diaries, tore our hearts out in A Walk to Remember, made us laugh in Saved! and even got a little raunchy in her arc on the HBO hit series Entourage. Needless to say she a successful actress and singer. Mandy released hit songs such as "Candy," "I Wanna Be With You" and "Stupid Cupid," officially making her a double threat in Hollywood. But as quickly as Mandy rose to new Millennium fame she just as quickly faded into the abyss, unable to maintain such a streak of hits. She appeared in License to Wed and Because I Said So, both rom-coms that didn't really perform up to box »
At the Atx Festival this summer, I had the privilege of sitting down with four different sets of couples who make up the wonderful talent behind Younger.
I hope you enjoy the conversation.
What was the genesis of Younger?
Darren: Well, it was originally a book that I found several years ago, and I was always really intrigued by the premise of a woman who left the workforce to have kids and raised a family and then, basically, 14 years later wanted to get back to work and found that doors were closed and she was too old. I knew women who had basically had that same experience in Hollywood. You know, after 12 years or even longer, you come back and find it's really tough...
