C to the Artoon, S to the Eries!
We've just learned that Jay-Z has signed on to star in Hub TV network's upcoming cartoon series called Secret Millionaires Club (after the jump), in which he'll "offer financial advice to a group of young children."
Warren Buffett will also be featured on the animated series, as a business adviser.
Interesting concept! We'll be curious to see how many kid millionaires we'll have by the end of the first season! Ha!
Will U tune in for Secret Millionaires Club?

Oh no! So, does this mean that the new manager of Dunder Mifflin won't be Warren Buffett? Ha!
We've been hearing about lots of different contenders to replace Steve Carell on The Office, including Will Arnett, James Spader, Ricky Gervais, and Will Ferrell, but NOW we've learned that Doctor Who star Catherine Tate is a strong candidate for the job.
Tate is reportedly the favorite amongst the show's producers, but there's some question as to whether or not she'll have enough time for the part due to her role in an upcoming run of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing in England.
The antici….pation is killing us! We want answers and we want them now! LOLz.
Would U like to see Catherine Tate as Steve Carell's replacement? Who is your favorite candidate for the job?

Don’t Worry, George Lucas will still have plenty of billions leftover.
The creator of the multi-billion dollar Star Wars franchise has agreed to take part in The Giving Pledge, which consists of a group of billionaires who agree to give away half of their wealth to charity.
The pledge was started by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, who could easily part with half of their respective fortunes. For those members who feel they need to shed even more billions, there is no cap on how much money one can donate to the pledge (Buffett has pledged 99% off his wealth).
We’re very impressed.
All of a sudden, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace seems slightly more watchable, and we might be less inclined to roll our eyes the next time we watch one of those Windows 7 “I’m a PC” commercials.
Would U donate half your money if U were a multi-billionaire?
