Lil Wayne will make his debut on the small screen next week in Fox’s new series, Grandfathered. Will acting be the rapper’s new thing?

Weezy will not be a series regular, but will appear alongside the show’s star John Stamons, Deion Sanders and Don Rickles for the big premiere. HipHollywood caught up with Stamos during the 2015 PaleyFest Fall TV preview event about Weezy’s acting chops.”He was really cool,” Stamos said. “Don’s filter is getting thinner and thinner over the years, but Wayne was a really good sport about it. He thought it was very funny.”

The show’s creator Danny Chun also explained that the three guest stars ended up being “the craziest grouping of celebrities I’ve ever been apart of. It was like the perfect storm of weirdness.”

And speaking of grouping of celebrities, it’s also worth noting that Weezy’s now ex-girlfirned, Christina Milian, is a series regular on the show. So we wonder: Did she help get him the gig?

On the program, Stamos plays a hot, single bachelor who finds out that not only is he a father, but a grandfather. “You watch the show, it’s not just about me being a grandfather. It’s me being a father and me being in a relationship and me trying to be a good guy that way.”

Grandfathered is just one of several comedies making it’s way to Fox this fall. Another anticipated sitcom, Rob Lowe and Fred Savages, The Grinder.
Lowe, who just celebrated 25 years of being sober, plays an actor and brother of Fred’s whose TV show comes to an end so he moves back his hometown. “We have a family law firm and he comes back after being a lawyer on TV for eight years thinking ‘oh of course I’ll just come join the family law firm,'” Savage told HipHollywood. “We try to explain to him ‘no it doesn’t work like that’ but some how he is convinced it will.'”
Both shows premiere on September 29 on Fox.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
