If you follow “Hart of Dixie” hunk Wilson Bethel on Twitter, you’re probably wondering about that, er, questionable Vanilla Ice haircut he debuted on Monday. Don’t worry — Wade isn’t getting a new look, exactly — the ‘do is for Bethel’s summer project. Now, Zap2it can exclusively reveal this first look at Bethel’s new web series, “Stupid Hype.”
The series follows a break dancer turned rising early ’90s rap star. Expect parachute pants, old-school boom boxes, and, if this sneak-peek video is anything to go by, plenty of sweaty close-ups.
“Stupid Hype” is part of The CW’s new digital platform, CWD, and will be available on CWTV.com this fall in short-form episodes. Bethel is not only starring in the show, but he also created it, and he and brother Charlie Bethel — also known as Chuck Wild — will write all the music. Dugan O’Neal is set to direct.
If “Stupid Hype” is even half as funny as “Call Me Doctor,” Rachel Bilson’s “Thug Lite” FunnyOrDie video that was written by Bethel and directed by O’Neal, it’s sure to be a viral hit.
