David Beckham has signed a deal to become the face of Samsung for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Samsung couldn't have picked a hotter face!

Speaking on behalf of his new gig as the ambassador for the electronics company, Beckham said:

"I’m very proud to be part of the team that brought the Olympics to my home city, London. It is one of the greatest events in the world. Working with a globally respected brand, like Samsung, our aim will be to help more and more people to enjoy and share the excitement of the London 2012 Olympic Games.”

While we weren't too thrilled about 2012, with the whole Mayan "end of the world" prediction thing, the thought of seeing David Beckham's seksi face plastered on Samsung advertisements everywhere we look lifts our spirits a little bit! Ha!

Starz Gives Greenlight To Gus Van Sant Show Starring Frasier Kelsey Grammer

kelsey grammer to star in gus van sant political drama

This is an really bizarre inneresting combination.

Starz has greenlit a political drama, Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer, written by the Apocalypto co-writer Farhad Safinia, and executive produced by Gus Van Sant, who's also set to direct the pilot episode.

We wonder what kind of political drama you get when you combine people associated with Frasier, Mel Gibson's Mayan movie, and a film about Gay Rights activist Harvey Milk.

Should be inneresting indeed!

Grammer will star as as the Mayor of Chicago, who gets diagnosed with a degenerative medical condition, but doesn't tell anybody.

The show is being described as "a King Lear-inspired tale of power set in Chicago's political machine."

Boss was sought after by several cable networks, but Starz eventually won the bidding war after making an offer for an 8-episode series order.

We'll be very curious to check out this show. Quite the eclectic team behind it!

Will U watch Frasier go political on Starz?
