Ready, set, drag! How does a
man compete at becoming the next hot, glamorous thing? The answer,
we're certain, will be uncovered when RuPaul's Drag Race hits
MTV Networks' cable channel Logo.
The hourlong reality series will
feature men competing to become America's next superstar drag queen.
Quintessential drag queen RuPaul herself is set to play judge and
jury. Watch out!
RuPaul is not messing around. In a
video promoting the show she goes straight for the throat of the
reality divas that came before her, “Hey Tyra, step back girl. The
queen has returned. And you can tell Heidi, clear the runway. Miss
RuPaul is back to pump some realness into reality!”
At rupaulsdragrace.com, hopefuls can
post a profile, which consists of a head shot and video, and visitors
can vote for their favorite. The online winner of this drag lap will
proceed to the show.
“RuPaul's history-making turn as a
groundbreaking glamour sensation opened the door for a new generation
of drag superstars,” Brian Graden, President of MTV Networks Music
Group Entertainment and Logo told The Hollywood Reporter. “We
hope to find the next one.”
The checkered flag of RuPaul's Drag
Race is set to hit Logo next year.
Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are set to
star as a pair of star-crossed lovers in the upcoming movie I Love
You Philip Morris.
Steven Russell (Carrey) is a married
father whose exploits land him in jail where he falls in love with
his cellmate (McGregor). Russell, longing to reunite with his lover
after he is released, becomes a habitual escapee.
Filming of I Love You Philip Morris
has already started in Florida.
The dark comedy marks the debut of
directing team Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and is based on the book
by Steve McVicker. The movie is currently being sold at the Cannes
International Film Festival.
