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.


Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response



HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.

The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.

We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.

After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:

“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”

He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”

The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.

As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.

Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.

The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
