Tony Hawk flirts with Google, 20th Century Fox

Tony Hawk is very busy flirting with media those days… A couple of weeks ago, Google announced a major deal ($100 dollars) with Tony Hawk wher Tony Hawk is supposed to produce original skateboard clips fo the new company…

Now its seems that a deal was announced between Tony Hawk and 20th Century Fox about a new movie entitled Parental Guidance. It seems that Tony Hawk will star as himself alongside side Hollywood legends Bette Midler, Billy Crystal and Marisa Tomei. The movie's storyline centers around two grandparents, played by Midler and Crystal, who must care for their three rambunctious grandchildren. The movie is currently being filmed in Georgia, close to Alpharetta and additional filming with Hawk will take place later this year in Atlanta. At least part of Hawk's appearance is supposed to take place on an X Games set so that can only mean one thing; he will undoubtedly be filmed skateboarding.

Tony Haw, apart from doing a contest at Venice tomorrow, is a busy man no stranger to acting. He has made many television and movie appearances over the years. Some of the movies he has been involved in include; Finding Joe, Lords of Dogtown, Deck Dogz, Gleaming the Cube and Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol. In addition to skateboarding Tony Hawk has a reputation as a tireless businessman and advocate for the sport. He recently went to Washington D.C. to speak with politicians on the importance of the sport and raised a good deal of money through The Tony Hawk Foundation. He also released a new line of children's books earlier this year entitled Tony Hawk's 900 Revolution. The books are available through several major retailers and typically sell for less than $7 each.
