Hollywood veterans sign on to teach NFL players
John Singleton, Robert Townsend and Keenen Ivory Wayans are among the Hollywood veterans who will lead sessions in a new NFL program for players interested in the movie industry.
The first NFL Pro Hollywood Boot Camp will run April 2 through 5 at California’s Universal Studios. The league said Monday that 20 current and former NFL players will take part.
The four-day event will offer an overview of creative disciplines in the film industry, including screenwriting, directing, producing and film financing. The players will have the opportunity to shoot and edit a short film.
The program is being run by NFL Player Engagement, which assists players in preparing for their post-football careers, and Film Life Inc., a New York-based film-production company.
More than 700 NFL players have participated in the NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program since 2005, and 106 players have taken part in the five NFL Broadcast Boot Camps. The Business of Music Boot Camp debuts in February 2012.
On singer Jessie J’s list: Gain weight in 2012
Most New Year’s resolutions include dieting. Not for Jessie J.
According to the Associated Press, the British singer said her goal for 2012 is to gain more weight.
Jessie J said she’s “been working hard this year” and that “it’s important to know when you need to gain weight, or when you need to lose weight and be healthy.”
The 23-year-old is known for her slim figure and skin-tight outfits.
She released her debut CD, “Who We Are,” earlier this year. It’s double platinum in the United Kingdom, where she has four top-10 hits, including the No. 1 tune “Price Tag.” That song has reached the Top 40 in America.
The singer also said she plans to shave her head for charity.
Said Jessie J: “I want to make a difference in the world.”
