Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has signed on with CBS to star in a new sitcom, which he will also co-produce. The show, which has the working title Douchebag, will be about an aging rock star attempting to balance his life as a celebrity with the pressures of raising his family. At this point, the program is still being developed, but it could appear as part of the network's fall lineup.

Durst has a limited resumé as an actor. The rocker has appeared in a handful of episodes of the Fox hit House as a bartender, and had a role in the NBC mini-series Revelations back in 2005.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
