Trump Creating Drama

Fox is adding another big fat obnoxious reality series to it's lineup. Next month the network will debut My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss, an Apprentice - like sequel to last winter's hit My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé. The show will feature a dozen CEO wannabes competing to win the approval of N. Paul Todd, a made-up, eccentric, ecumenical founder and CEO of the fictional Chicago company Iocor. (Actor William August plays Todd). Fox will premiere the series 9 p.m. Nov. 7th as part of it's Sunday comedy block.

Donald Trump has had so much luck bringing the realities of boardroom politics to TV, that now the famous tycoon may try his hand at DRAMA. The Boss in NBC's popular Apprentice series is in talks with the network for a primetime drama. The show, tentatively titled The Towers, would reportedly involve storylines taking place in his world-renowned Trump Tower in Manhattan. Trump is expected to executive produce the potential project. No word if Omarosa will be seen washing windows outside the towers, wearing a hard hat.

The latest parole attempt by JOHN LENNON's killer, MARK DAVID CHAPMAN, has failed. Chapman, who's now 49, had his third request for freedom turned down after the parole board criticized his "extreme malicious intent" in gunning down Lennon. He'll have to stay behind bars for at least two more years before he can file another request for parole.

Here's a great story: The NY Daily News reports JAMIE FOXX glued his eyes shut to play RAY CHARLES in the upcoming film biography about the recording star. Jamie told a lecture crowd Saturday night that "Ray couldn't see, and we didn't want to cheat."

Jamie, who plays the piano in real life, described his first meeting with the legend: "he shook my hand and said, 'Hmmm... Strong fingers,'" said Foxx. " 'Let's play the blues.' We sat down to two pianos and soon I realized he was testing me. I hit a wrong note. He said, 'Why the hell did you do that?! The notes are there right under your fingers. You need to take the time to learn them.' And I realized life is like that, too."
