Ving Rhames has joined the cast of Football Wives, based on the BBC show Footballer's Wives, for ABC. The show revolves around a group of women who marry football superstars, and the lives that they lead as a result. On the BBC, the original show was a pretty racy soap, filled with sexy women, affairs, and illict joys all around.
Also cast on the show, as some of the wives, are Bring It On's Gabrielle Union, and Xena: The Warrior Princess herself, Lucy Lawless. If it kind of sounds like Desperate Housewives, but with a background in sports, you're kind of right. So, judge accordingly.
In other news, this pretty much puts the kibosh on Pulp Ficion: The Series, in which Rhames is sodomized by a special guest star each week, while The Gimp sings pop songs of the day.
