Vince Vaughn, Glenn Beck Team Up for Reality Show

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Here’s a Hollywood couple you probably didn’t see coming: Vince Vaughn and Glenn Beck. The Wedding Crashers star and former Fox News host announced Wednesday that they’re developing Pursuit of Truth, a reality show for Beck’s network, TheBlaze TV.

The show will pit 20 documentary filmmakers against each other as they compete for financing and distribution for their film. (Ben Affleck and Matt Damon did a similar series with HBO, Project Greenlight, in the early ’00s.) Vaughn and Beck’s nine-episode series will launch on TheBlaze TV in spring 2013.

Aspiring documentarians, take note: Beck said he’d “love to see something on the Federal Reserve, the game that’s being played there. I would love to see something on why capitalism is actually a good thing, why it’s not a bad thing.”

Beck, Vaughn, and their production partners will review applications for contestants, according to the show’s website.

Vaughn has expressed his conservative leanings before. He supported Republican presidential contender Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012.

For Beck, the show is his latest eyebrow-raising project. Earlier this year, he launched a line of jeans.

Glenn Beck Ending Fox News Channel Show

Michael Caulfield/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Glenn Beck will end his daily show on Fox News Channel by the end of the year, according to a statement released by Fox News and Beck's production company.

The exact end date for Glenn Beck, the third highest rated program on cable news, was not released. Fox News and Beck's production company, Mercury Radio Arts, said that they will continue to collaborate on television projects.

"Glenn Beck is a powerful communicator, a creative entrepreneur and a true success by anybody's standards," said Roger Ailes, chairman and CEO of Fox News.

Beck's contract is set to expire in December, the New York Times reported.

"I truly believe that America owes a lot to Roger Ailes and Fox News...I look forward to starting this new phase of our partnership," Beck, 47, said in the statement.

Beck's popular show, launched in January 2009, has become a rallying ground for conservative Republicans and drawn the ire of liberals.
