Vanilla Ice is set to play Captain Hook in a pantomime performance of Peter Pan at a theater in England later this year. No, really. The show will begin its run at the Central Theater in Chatham, Kent on December 9th and will run through January 2nd.

This will be Vanilla Ice's first-ever pantomime performance, though he has experience as a dancer and has acted before, most notably in his 1991 star vehicle Cool As Ice. He has also appeared as a contestant on the British figure skating show Dancing On Ice, and will participate in a U.K. tour for the program beginning in April.

Here is a video of Vanilla Ice ice skating to his signature hit "Ice Ice Baby" on a recent episode of Dancing On Ice.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
