Ex-Pennywise Singer Jim Lindberg’s Book Idea Adapted for Film by Jason Segel

Bryan Bedder / Astrid Stawiarz, Getty Images A great idea is a great idea, and former Pennywise singer Jim Lindberg continues to see positive returns from his ‘Punk Rock Dad’ book. Initially, the vocalist saw his book turned into a documentary helmed by director Andrea Nevins featuring several rock star fathers. Now, reports that ‘How I Met Your Mother’ actor Jason Segel has picked up the rights to adapt the premise into a traditional motion picture. The actor will both star in and produce the film, which is going by the name ‘The Other F Word.’ While the book focused solely on Lindberg’s tales, balancing fatherhood with his rock star lifestyle, the documentary expanded the story base to include Rise Against ‘s Tim McIlrath , Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘ Flea , NOFX’s Fat Mike, Blink-182′s Mark Hoppus, The Vandals’ Joe Escalante, and Bad Religion’s Brett Gurewitz among others. Fox won the rights to the film in a bidding war. Segel, who also wrote and starred in the films ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and ‘The Muppets,’ will co-write ‘The Other F Word’ for Fox. Aside from Segel, no other cast members have been revealed. Lindberg split from Pennywise in 2009 after 21 years with the band. It didn’t take him long to move on, as his band, the Black Pacific, released an album in 2010. Lindberg was replaced in Pennywise by Ignite vocalist Zoli Teglas in 2010. Their first record with Teglas was 2012′s ‘All or Nothing.’ [button href=”” title=”Next: Pennywise’s Zoli Teglas Collapses Onstage” align=”center”]

Ozzy Osbourne’s Son Jack Reportedly to Marry Fiancee Lisa Stelly in Hawaii

Frederick M. Brown, Getty Images Ozzy Osbourne ‘s son  Jack  and his fiance Lisa Stelly reportedly will be getting married this weekend in Hawaii. Ozzy and his wife  Sharon  will be welcoming Stelly, who is the mother of Jack’s 5-month-old daughter Pearl, into their family as the low-key wedding takes place either this coming Saturday (Oct. 5) or Sunday (Oct. 6). According to an undisclosed source, the New York Post has learned that Jack and Lisa recently sent out the invitations and asked their family and friends to keep the affair hush, hush. “They just sent the invites out and are asking guests to sign non-disclosure agreements,” says the anonymous source. Jack Osbourne has gone through a roller-coaster ride of emotions this year. He became a father  on April 24, but only weeks later revealed he is battling  multiple sclerosis . The first piece of news was met with the greatest of excitement by the Osbourne family, with his mother Sharon boasting, “It’s like a new life. There’s nothing like it, nothing like to witness it. It’s just an amazing event. You go through every emotion. You go through joy and you thank God that everybody is healthy and happy. You realize how lucky you are. It’s like life has gone full cycle in our family.” The reaction was quite different when Jack was diagnosed with MS, but Stelly has stood beside her future husband throughout it all. “It’s something great to focus on,” Stelly says about the upcoming wedding. “Even when I was at the hospital, we were discussing the plans. It’s going to be great. After we had the baby we decided we didn’t want to waste any more time.” As always, we’d like to give our best wishes to Jack and Lisa, along with both the Osbourne and Stelly families. Enjoy the toaster. [button href=”” title=”Next: Ozzy Osbourne to Toast Sharon’s 60th on ‘The Talk'” align=”center”]
