Snoop Dogg

Is there anything Snoop Dogg can't do? Possibly, although it's hard to imagine what that might be. The star of stage and screen — his upcoming credits include the romantic comedy The Golden Door, Latina gang diary Por Vida and the self-explanatory Coach Snoop — now also has the No. 1 rated show on E! Entertainment Television, the hilarious Snoop Dogg's Father Hood. (Upcoming episode description: "Having been banned from the home studio for soiling the carpets, Snoop's hounds now face eviction from the small barn he calls the 'Dogg House.'") He and soccer superstar David Beckham are also, apparently, in discussions to co-finance a porno flick. Amazingly, amid all the extracurricular activities of his stranger-than-fiction life — don't forget he's head coach of his sons' youth football team — Snoop's musical career continues to thrive. "Sensual Seduction," his Vaseline-lensed homage to all things silky and '70s, is a YouTube smash and currently No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. With his ninth proper album Ego Trippin' due next month, Snoop is unquestionably still music's top Dogg. To paraphrase Vince Vaughn in Old School, give a warm Houston welcome to my pal and your favorite, Mister...Snoop...Dogg!
