Wilmer Valderrama is ... the Dog Whisperer
Usually we're complaining that TV networks only greenlight reality shows these days, but how about a scripted show taken from a reality show? When that happens you get stuff like Wilmer Valderrama playing a character based on Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan, Variety says.
Fox is developing a show with Valderrama playing a Millanesque dog trainer with a multimedia empire. It will be written and executive-produced by Emily Kapnek, the same woman who tried to get Wilmer a show with The Emancipation of Ernesto, which you don't know about because it never went anywhere.
And why does Wilmer get to do this? Because he's so much like Cesar? After making movies like Fast Food Nation and The Condor, V does know something about working with dogs, but in this case, we'd rather stick with the real thing.
