Cook Keen To Become The New Bob Hope

Subscribe To:

Actor/comedian Dane Cook is keen to become the new Bob Hope of the U.S. Army's United Services Organisation by staging a series of variety shows for American troops stationed overseas. The Employee Of The Month star is plotting to take a group of comedians, singers and entertainers to camps and barracks in Europe and the Middle East, just like his hero Hope did as a U.S.O. ambassador. He tells WENN, "I've been trying to put something together like that for the last year but I want to do it the right way. I'd like to do it in the tradition of guys like Bob Hope, where I would go over and I would host a show and bring people with me. "We could film the show, release it on DVD and then give 100 per cent of the proceeds back to the U.S.O. "But I don't want to do it half-assed. If I can't get the logistics I can't do it the right way. If it all worked out, I'd do it in heartbeat. "My father went to Korea and he served and it means a lot to me to be able to give back to my country no matter what your stance is on the climate, it's about the people." Cook is already doing his bit - by sending care packages to troops: "I send them CDs, and whatever I can do to keep them laughing."
