Today's news you might've missed:
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is on the hunt for the next big American “hero.”
Variety reports that the actor and former WWE heavyweight has signed on to appear in the new reality show, aptly titled, “The Hero.”
On the “Survivor”-like program, three teams are picked to traverse three continents in an effort to demonstrate their strength and heroism.
It's been nearly three decades since the Jackson brothers went on tour together, and they're remedying that this summer.
The Jacksons, including Tito, Marlon, Jackie and Jermaine, will hit the road for their Unity 2012 tour, the group announced Tuesday.
The last time the brothers toured together, it was for 1984's Victory Tour.
There’s a whole lot of celebrity skin on display in the May issue of Allure magazine.
Five actresses and TV personalities - Debra Messing, Taraji P. Henson, Maria Menounos, Leslie Bibb and Morena Baccarin - appear in the publication, totally in the buff.
The ladies took their clothes off for the Body Images feature, and not too surprisingly, some were more comfortable than others getting naked for the cameras.
Breakout author E.L. James - the woman behind that deliciously racy novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” - admits that the motivation behind her steamy storylines was actually her own “midlife crisis.”
"It's all my fantasies in one thing," the British writer said of her publishing hit and its two sequels in a recent interview with ABC’s “20/20."
“It's a contemporary, romantic fiction, with quite a lot of sex in it," James, who is married with two teenage sons, said of the trilogy's popularity. "I think it's the love story... I hope it's because of the love story."
The virtual version of Tupac Shakur might soon take the show on the road.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the technology that made a 2-D illusion of the late rapper appear to perform at Coachella over the weekend created so much chatter that Coachella headliners Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are reportedly planning to talk over the logistics of a tour. (And as it's a 2-D image and not 3-D, it's technically not a hologram.)
Tupac, and other virtual versions of artists we want to see on tour
One idea, the paper cites, is to do a smaller tour with just Dre, Snoop and virtual Pac, with another thought being to go big and include other hip-hop stars like Eminem, 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa, who also performed during Dre and Snoop's Coachella set on Sunday. However, a rep for Dr. Dre tells CNN that any talk about a potential tour is "premature."
