Did anyone in Vegas ever place a bet on the odds that the little kid carrying a fishing pole along a dirt path as "The Andy Griffith Show" theme whistle plays would ever work with hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.? The odds against this ever happening would probably require a number so large that it would take a week to type it out... I don't do scientific powers-of-ten notation.


Ron Howard, a.k.a. Opie, a.k.a. Richie Cunningham, a.k.a. father of the sickeningly hot Bryce Dallas Howard and his longtime partner Bryan Grazer of Imagine Entertainment have signed on to produce and direct a documentary centered around Jay-Z's preparation for his inaugural Made in America music festival this Labor Day in Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Park.

Jay-Z's eclectic festival is scheduled to take place this Sep. 1st and 2nd. Slated to appear are Drake, Pearl Jam, Run-DMC, Skrillex, Rick Ross, Miike Snow, Odd Future, D'Angelo, Dirty Projectors and Janelle Monáe. I think it's also safe to assume that Jay-Z will be performing. via NYP
