Justin Timberlake has already seen his latest album ’20/20 Experience’ open to blockbuster sales and continue chart dominance nearly two months since its release, but now the pop prince is looking to extend his reign to another tally – box offices.

Indeed, the singer/actor is set to take his talents to screens once more with the film ‘Spinning Gold’ – the story of recording industry icon Neil Bogart.  Bogart, whose illustrious career saw him launch or guide the early careers of legends Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, KISS, The Village People, and many more, will have his story told by son Timothy Scott Bogart.

Producers tapped for the film are Mark Damon (“Monster”), Laurence Mark (“Dreamgirls”), and more.

No tentative release date has been announced.

If reports are to be believed, America’s favorite alien crimefighters ‘Men In Black’ may be donning their black suits once more for a new installment of action.

With stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones presumed to be at the forefront of the action and director Barry Sonnenfeld in tow, word has it Sony has already tapped screenwriter Oren Uziel to script part 4 of the series and that it won’t take a decade to surface like its predecessor (which nearly grossed $200 million in North American box offices alone and $445 million abroad).

TGJ:  4) What’s been your favorite role so far?

Kym:  My favorite role to this day was on the ‘Wayans Bros‘. We did an episode called ‘Misery’. I got the chance to play a woman who kidnapped Marlon [Wayans]. I got to be so silly and ignorant!  So, I think that’s definitely it!

TGJ:  5) After years of film and television under your belt, what’s left for you to do? What’s your dream role?

Kym:  Probably more behind the camera. I’d love to do more production and directing.  My dream role would be to play a civil rights leader or something historic. No matter the time period, I am fascinated by African American history.

TGJ:  Wow! That was really unexpected!  So, bringing this all home, give us one reason why we should watch Raising Whitley?

Kym:  Two L’s – to laugh and learn!  Also, to be inspired!

‘Raising Whitley’ airs Saturdays, 10/9c only on OWN TV!

Initially projected to generate 95 million dollars, momentum generated for the project by the star’s sold out ‘Mrs.Carter Show‘ world tour has helped push US projections to 130 million dollars- marking the latest win for the ‘Chime For Change‘ spokeswoman.

…but it gets better.

As to push its total projections to 375 million dollars, the movie is on course to generate 245 million dollars across the globe in its release week.

With his new album ‘Love In The Future‘ hitting sonic shores in the coming months, John Legend has embarked on a venture that will see him branch outside of music…in partnership with Time Warner‘s ‘HBO‘.

Joining forces with ‘24′ producer Tony Krantz, Legend has signed on to craft the brand new TV series ‘Down Lo’, set in Miami’s South Beach – ‘exploring the intersection of three worlds — the party town’s popular music scene and sports and fashion circles. It deals with fame and secrets, with the stories told from multiple points of view’.

One of these view points- Vulture explains- will come courtesy of a closeted gay Rapper battling with his sexuality, a theme previously tackled on The CW‘s short lived ‘The LA Complex‘.

While its launch date is yet to be announced, we do know the series will be produced by John’s ‘Get Lifted’ film company, which has enlisted ‘How To Make It In America‘s Seth Zvi Rosenfeld to serve as one of its writers.

‘Party Up’ performer DMX was not in a festive mood after viewing his highly anticipated episode of ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ last week on Oprah Winfrey‘s network OWN.

In fact, the former hit rapper was so displeased that he is threatening legal action against Winfrey and co., claiming he was deliberately shown in a negative light.  Yes, X (as he is affectionately known) has had his fair share of run-ins with the law and a number of drug rehabilitation centers over the past decade.  But, according to sources, the rapper was due to chat with Vanzant about his addiction to sex, not drugs (as the episode displays).

He reportedly told TMZ:

“Iyanla set the whole thing up to make me look bad for ratings.” “That lady is toxic … My last words to her were that she can suck my d**k and she still can.”
