Ol' Dirty Bastard Film Star Named

Actor Michael K. Williams has been tapped to star as fallen rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard in the film Dirty White Boy. Williams is best known for his roles as Omar on HBO's "The Wire" and Chalky White on "Boardwalk Empire." The film is being produced by company Parts & Labor (Beginners) with Ocean Side Pictures' Todd Hagopian and is based on a screenplay by Brent Hoff.
The film tells the story ODB through the eyes of a 22-year old VH1 employee named Jarred Weisfeld who becomes friends with the rapper. ODB's mother and Weisfeld have signed off on the project.
"We both knew full well who Ol' Dirty Bastard was but this story completely floored us. As filmmakers, we knew that this would make a great film and that Jarred Weisfeld would offer an actor a complicated and compelling character to play. This felt to us like 'Risky Business' and '8 Mile,' with equal elements of darkness, humor, and humanity," said Hagopian. "We are thrilled to have the genius of Joaquin Baca-Asay behind the camera, directing this incredibly original screenplay by Brent Hoff. I know Michael K. Williams will leave audiences completely in awe as Russell Jones, the man behind the character ‘Ol' Dirty Bastard."

Mobb Deep's Knicks Connection

Mobb Deep are among New York City's most respected hip hop acts, and the Queens-based duo's influence can now be traced to the sports world. The New York Knicks, in the midst of fighting for the final playoff spot in the NBA's Eastern Conference, have dubbed their role players "Mob Deep," much to the amusement of Havoc and Prodigy.
"I've heard them play our music before at different games, maybe during the highlights on the news and certain things like that," Prodigy told ESPNNewYork. "But this is the first time where the team actually called something 'Mobb Deep.' That's the Knicks. That's what's up."
"I thought it was like a one-time thing," Havoc added, "but then I started hearing about it and people kept on telling me that they mentioned it on MSG every time they have a game."
"It was a saying that we used to use in Queensbridge, describing how many of us it would be when we all went out, or if we saw another crew that had a lot of people rolling with them," he said of the term's origin. "We would be like, 'Yo, we were mobb deep last night at the movie theater,' or whatever have you -- as in a mob of us, that we were rolling deep."

Rihanna On Ashton Rumors: ''I'm Happy and I'm Single''

Rihanna bristled at a reporter's question regarding her rumored late night fling with Ashton Kutcher. The gossip mill went into overdrive after the sexy singer was spotted visiting Kutcher's home late at night, but at a press conference in London, Rih-Rih dismissed any notion that she was in a relationship with Ashton.
A British journalist remarked to Rihanna, “You’re so good at connecting with people that I think that we actually feel we know you. Things are clearly going brilliantly in your career. I just wondered if you are as happy in your private life, and will we see a certain Mr. Ashton Kutcher perhaps making a trip over here?”
“Wow, how disappointing was that question?” she added, with obvious irritation, before responding sharply. “I’m happy and I’m single, if that’s what you’re really asking.”
