Ryan Seacrest, the new hardest working man in show business, adds to his already bountiful repertoire with a film project with Reese Witherspoon, the Hollywood Reporter reports.
Seacrest, who hails from metro Atlanta and got his start on Star 94 here, has an ever expanding empire including a radio show of his own and hosting gigs on “American Idol,” numerous red carpets.
He comes home fairly regularly. His charitable foundation launched a radio program for the young patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Here’s a link to a story about that project, “The Voice.”
He was seen around town quite frequently last year, when gal pal Julianne Hough was here filming the “Footloose” remake. Here’s a link to a story about where the two were spotted.
Seacrest and Witherspoon will serve as co-producers of the as yet unnamed project. It’ll be a romantic comedy.
Seacrest is a pretty prolific tweeter, officially confirming for the world the tragic news of Kim Kardashian’s failed marriage earlier this week. But he hasn’t (yet) tweeted about his new film project with Witherspoon. We’ll stay tuned.
Meanwhile Seacrest did just tweet this photo of himself and Justin Bieber ringing in the holidays. The Biebs has a new Christmas album out of course, so the two fired up the yule log to celebrate. (The electronic yule log, that is).
“Anyone feel like we go right from Halloween to ramping up for Christmas?” Seacrest tweeted.
