Get Him Outta Here!

11:40 AM -- Having been gotten outta office, Rod "Hair Helmet" Blagojevich has set his sights higher, as NBC has set its sights lower (and who could have thought that possible?). James Hibberd's Live Feed blog has the latest infotainment poopadoodle:

    Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has made a deal to star in NBC's upcoming summer reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here, the network confirms.

    "Rod Blagojevich will be a participant on the show pending the court's approval," said NBC in a statement.

    NBC has been looking for household names for its version of the U.K. hit, which launches June 1...

    Official Celebrity description: "Ten celebrities of various backgrounds will be dropped into the heart of the Costa Rican jungle to face challenges designed to test their skills in adapting to the wilderness and to raise money for their favorite charities."
Blagojevich's favorite charity? Sounds promising. I'd guess that'd be his lawyer or his bail bondsman. Or maybe his pool boy...
