I Provmg that no spin— off is too ludicrous. Jack Osbourne is getting his own Channel 4 show. Cameras will be following him around LA as he Surveys his beloved home town with a “Brit's eye View'. It's to be called Union Jack (clever, eh?). Expect the horror to descend sometime in November . . . But. as if to prove that wunners can also find a place on C4, Perrier hero Demetri Martin will be part of the next amusing set of experiments in The Comedy Lab . . . Despite admitting to having problems with st'ff limbs in his old age. Harrison Ford (61) will be jumping back into the saddle as Indiana Jones. The fourth instalment will start shooting next summer . . . An indie movie of another kind sees Ja Rule joining Ving Rhamea for Back in the Day. set in and around the gangs of Puerto Rico. We're not sure about Ja's next two film moves though: he's starring with J-Lo in Shall We Dance and then cropping up in Scary Movie 3. But hey. we all make mistakes.
