There are plenty of over-the-top moments in Be Cool , the sequel to Get Shorty, which transports Chili Palmer played by John Travolta from the movie business to the music business. Cedric the Entertainer portrays the ultimate hip-hop mogul, who prefers to live in a white gated community. Vince Vaughn plays a white guy who desperately wants to be black. I loved Spider-Man, but I'm not too sure Tobey Maguire could kick my or a lot of other people's asses. With nothing to lose, the WWE reinvented the Rock as a heel.
Jess Harnell: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson
The Playboy Interview With Actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
Did you know that we were this close to seeing Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson perform a musical number at this year's Oscars? In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, the wrestler turned actor said he was in talks with the Academy to host the Oscars but couldn't do it due to scheduling. Kevin Hart was then chosen but subsequently pulled out due to the controversy over his past anti-gay comments. Johnson said that his team didn't campaign for the opportunity, but he was "over the moon" about the possibility of hosting what is arguably the most prestigious award show in the world. Johnson said he met with Oscars producers Donna Gigliotti and Glenn Weiss several times and had already begun working on what his vision for the show as host would look like — ideas so grand he said Gigliotti and Weiss loved them. The star said he and his team were going to "turn the Oscars on their head this year and make it something special and unique and different," which would usher in a new era of how the beloved awards ceremony would be enjoyed.

I feel it would be a great thing for gay actors and actresses to come out. It would be a positive step towards showing the world that as homosexuals, we are no different than anyone else. Not to mention the courage and strength it would give many gay youth to be content with themselves, just by being able to identify with someone famous just by their sexuality. A role model for them to look up to within the gay community. Especially since statistically speaking, gay youth are 10 times more likely to commit suicide over their straight counterparts.
