Mark Wahlberg once produced a show for a top-tier cable network that was inspired by his own experiences in Hollywood. Now another top-tier cable network will tip its hat to Wahlberg and his experiences in Hollywood--just as he promotes a movie based on that show. That entertainment-world ouroboros will raise its head for the "Entourage" producer at next month's MTV Movie Awards, where Wahlberg, 42, will accept its “Generation” prize, the show's version of a lifetime achievement award.

Conan O'Brien will host the youthful, pop-oriented MTV Movie Awards for the first time on April 13 at the Nokia Theatre, the late-night host announced on "Conan" on Tuesday. At 50, he is the oldest performer ever to host the show, which tends to favor twenty- and thirty-something comedians for its podium gigs.

Actor Jamie Foxx made a silent but powerful fashion statement at Sunday's BET Awards , where he opted out of the usual red-carpet finery in favor of a T-shirt bearing the image of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teen whose shooting death last year sparked intense national debate over gun control and racial profiling. Foxx beat out the likes of Denzel Washington and Samuel L.

Foxx's fashion statement arrived as the trial of George Zimmerman , the man who claims to have shot Martin in self-defense, enters its second week.
