Outkast's Andre 3000 says he's ready to give his full attention to the role of Jimi Hendrix. He will play the rock legend in a movie directed by Albert and Allen Hughes. Andre has no pretensions about being able to mimic Hendrix's lightning fretwork. "I won't do my own guitar playing," he said. "It will probably be someone who knows Jimi's style inside and out." "Jimi was wild onstage," the soft-spoken singer says. "Offstage, he was really calm."
Eminem is currently being considered to play the starring role of a comic book character in the upcoming film "Wanted. Comic book writer Mark Millar is bringing this super villain comic book series "Wanted" to the silver screen and he's looking at Em for the starring role.

Millar will also reportedly be executive producer of the film. He is interested in getting Tommy Lee Jones and Beyonce Knowles for other villainous roles.
Missy Elliott is set to star in a new reality television series for UPN, tentatively called The Missy Elliott Project.

Diddy's Making the Band. Open casting calls have been set for this month in New York,Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Arlington, VA. No air date has been set for the show at this time.
