If you happen to be named Ke$ha, today's your lucky day! CBS is creating a reality series about average Joes who bear the monikers of celebrities.
According to New York magazine's Vulture, "The Same Name" hopes to take everyday citizens and have them temporarily trade lives with their famous counterparts.
But could Florida pinball whiz Justin Bieber carry a tune and belt out all the lyrics to "Baby"? And would the bevy of Betty Whites in Boston be able to pull off a "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig with such aplomb?
We may get a chance to find out next summer, when "The Same Name" – still under consideration at CBS – hopes to air on the network.
how come linsday lohan gets away with stealing a necklace but say like if i did i would be put in jail not saying i did i never stole anything in my livr.
My real name is Chris Brown ... and i look like Fred....lol
My real name is Harvey Wallbanger
I just want to add that I absolutely love the word 'bevy'. I believe this word should be used as much humanly possible.
Can i live in the whitehouse?
I know a college president name Jack Daniels and this name provides jokes for days. Funny if this is the same person. I agree, you should get something for this name :}
i love justin bieber
eat my shorts
She has a cute face for a tomboy.
Tv just continues its descent down the drain of vapidity! They have no ideas or creativity anymore. Time to hang it up, network execs.
And here you are again, following me around. You must have a crush. Sorry, I'm not into terrible Internet trolls. So go fu_ck yourself.
Who's Justin Bieber? Oh, just a teenager with a 1970's women's hair style.
I had a really snarky comment, but this kid's going to have enough problems.
The name is Roll. Rick Roll.
Now is my chance to dunk on his excellency!!!!!! My name is Michael Jordan and I will need a 6 foot step ladder.
If my name was Ron Jeremy, would I finally get to play hide the Twinkie?
i feel bad for the pinball wizard bieber. Well, the gay one who sings in front of teenage girls too. That guy probably suffers a lot since this little kid came out. He's not going to last. Teenage girls grow up. No one likes him for his singing, anyways, It's just because he's "hot". I can't stand that crap. I would love to watch Florida Bieber play pinball though.
I'm bobby brown, but have no desire to trade lives with the famous one... I'll keep my life, thank you.
I bet he's built like a Ken doll.
he probably had genitalia like a ken doll too.
Justin Bieber would be the worst name to have currently....that kid is screaming to come out of the closet, so I'm sure every other Justin Bieber is getting some interesting phone calls from those who out the real Justin Bieber
No, but it could be . . . for the right price.
My name is Yanni.
hay look i commented on this yay im famous
They, they took my stapler. It was a red Swingline and I want it back, or I'll burn the building down one day. You'll see.
My name is Yanni
My name's Mabel Schwartz too!
That's right. Obama dinner... and none for you, John.
....well that makes no sense.
But just to keep everything in the spirt of this blog topic. If your name is Barack Obama you get to be President of the US on this show. If your name is John McCain you get to be Govenor of AZ on this show.
I guess that makes you one of the idiots that voted him in, huh? MORON!!! I have more respect for people that didn't vote at all, as I do for people that voted for Odumbo.
As George Bush said after winning his second term, "to the victor go the spoils". I'll translate that for you, Winner Winner OBAMA dinner!
Yeah, we can see how important it is to be respected by a clown like you.
Please, please, please not another "reality" show. Guess I should appreciate them since I never watch them. I've gotten in great shape since these things took over TV. Now I rarely turn it on and spend more time in the gym. These are mindless shows and are making our county sedentary.
I'm Bill Clinton... close but no cigar
U SHOULD HALF SAID YOU WHERE PHIL CLINTON CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN BEETER
My name is Bruce Lee.......'nuff said
Does CNN own stock in Justin Bieber? Seems like everyday there is a new article on JB. ENOUGH ALREADY!!! This kid isnt the second coming nor is he the fifth Beatle! He's just some dumb luck kid who has a bad haircut and Im assuming he will probably copywrite his hair style soon. Please, please, please for the love of Pete, NO MORE BIEBER!!!
Please detail me on President Obama's allegation against the Republicans as having led Americans into a ditch economically. Thanks
When you republicans are so stupid that you can't even win a presidental election against a non-citizen black man with a funny name and Biden as his back up, you really don't deserve a response to any of your concerns. Maybe your party can come up with a better ticket than "a nice old guy and dumb broad" for the next election.
Pretty obvious. They wage failed wars. Reagan's against drugs (can never win), Iraq & Afghanistan (countries that did not attack us). These trillion dollar wars are responsible for much of the economy – all waged by republicans. They deregulated the banks and we all know what happened then, the bottom fell out of the housing market. Need anymore examples?
my name is portalpunk, and thats just what I need, another imitator.
My name is Pamela Anderson, do I finally get a boob job?
What a geeky little talentless loser. I think he'll fade off the scene. Today would be nice.

Guess what, on the next show you get to get your gin on, roll with some dealer under the sheets, then get thrown in jail.

$100 a month for cable and this is the crap they put on?! I refuse to watch shows like this!
It would be lovely to pull up CNN.com one time without seeing the name Justin Beiber. The guy's a no talent tool bag and I have better things to read about.
Lol Then dont click it you loser .
Agreed Eric...totally agree!!
Unlike the other two replies, I agree with you. They need to keep reporting on Kanye West. CNN, please, one moron at a time.
This crap aired on television is hardly what I'd call reality.
Dis is crazy
Hey Fonz, can I hang out wit chu? Can I, huh? Can I?
I'm Charles Manson. He's a celebrity of sorts. :)

Victoria, wait until you get older. You won't ever admit to have liked this pseudo-boy.
Should be Justina. I didn't know it was a boy... Tweeny girls are going to be disappointed when he comes out and says who his boyfriend is. He looks so much like a little girl.
lmao @cheefsfury..... Thanks for the laugh. I am sitting at my desk cracking up.
My name jasline -_-
Oh Oh! I'm Jon Macenroe but there's no way in hell I'm playing tennis.
