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.

Vince Vaughn Speaks About Controversy Over Movie Trailer

Photo Courtesy - Universal Pictures(NEW YORK) -- Vince Vaughn is the latest celebrity to take a stand against bullying, though it comes just a week after a theatrical trailer for his new film received criticism for containing what many people deemed to be an insensitive remark regarding homosexuality. 

The original trailer for The Dilemma was pulled from theaters after CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation complained about a scene in which Vaughn's character tells a group of people, "Ladies and gentleman, electric cars are gay."

In a statement released to Deadline.com, Vaughn said, "Let me add my voice of support to the people outraged by the bullying and persecution of people for their differences, whatever those differences may be.  Comedy and joking about our differences breaks tension and brings us together.  Drawing dividing lines over what we can and cannot joke about does exactly that; it divides us.  Most importantly, where does it stop?"

The Dilemma, directed by Ron Howard, focuses on a man who finds out his best friend's wife is having an affair.
