Alright times three: Who wants to witness another gloriously gonzo Matthew McConaughey speech? The chest-thumping, Oscar-winning actor — who has scored on screens big and small over the last year (Dallas Buyers Club, The Wolf of Wall Street, True Detective) — is being honored at Spike TV’s Guys Choice 2014, EW has learned. He will be named Guy of the Year, an award whose previous recipients include Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney. READ FULL STORY

Bazinga! A&E has greenlit a Boston-set reality pilot called The Big Brew Theory, which follows four MIT grad students who team up with an MIT undergrad to create the micro-brewery of their dreams.
Mark Wahlberg is signed on to executive produce, along with Stephen Levinson, Stephanie Drachkovitch, and Bill Thompson. Wahlberg most recently appeared in (and executive produced) Wahlburgers, an A&E reality show about his family’s burger business.
Just call it the real-life Entourage… with extra cheese.
A&E announced today that brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg have inked a deal to appear in and executive produce a new unscripted series called Wahlburgers, which will go behind the scenes of their family’s Boston-based burger joint. Donnie broke the news about the series during an appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show Monday night. (And yes, that was indeed one of the most ’90s sentences ever written.)
In addition to the two most famous Wahlbergs, the show will also feature real-life characters including their brother Paul, who serves as the restaurant’s executive chef, their spitfire mother Alma, and Wahlberg cousin Johnny Alves — a.k.a. the real Johnny Drama.
Wahlburgers, produced for A&E by 44 Blue Productions, will premiere Jan. 22 at 10:30 p.m. Watch Donnie give a few hints about the show in the clip below.
Colorado residents, this one is for you.
Fox is developing a sitcom, The Happy Tree, based around the legalization of marijuana, Deadline reports. The show, from former Entourage and How To Make It In America executive producers Rob Weiss, Mark Wahlberg, and Steve Levinson, centers on a young corporate attorney who relocates to Venice Beach, Calif. and finds himself the voice for the “legalize it” movement, per Deadline.
Getting high is fertile ground for comedy, and it’s no surprise that after the election a few weeks ago — where Colorado and Washington State voted to allow legal marijuana use — that a sitcom deal would spring up. Fox had not responded to requests for comment at time of publication.
