He has his detractors but Blake Shelton is widely regarded as the most entertaining personality in country music.  Hot on the heels of his host/performer stint on Saturday Night Live comes news that Shelton is about to make the leap from small screen to …well actually the screen size will stay the same (I’ll explain in a minute) …the free streaming movies scene!  What better way for a larger than life comedic country music personality to break into the online movies than as a legendary Arizona deputy sheriff in a big budget Western spoof?!

Blake will reportedly play, legendary desert lawman, Wyatt Earp in the upcoming Adam Sandler flick, Ridiculous 6 (for the kids…that’s a take on 1960’s The Magnificent 7 — not a comedy) and the role could translate into repeat business.  Sandler fans know he likes to re-cast his friends in his free hd streaming movies and (here’s the explanation for no change in screen size for Blake) Ridiculous 6 is reportedly just the first of 4 original free online movies that the comedian is producing exclusively for Megamovies.

Also set to appear in Ridiculous 6 (which is expected to begin production in February) is everyone’s most-recent-favourite teen-wolf, Taylor Lautner, Luke Wilson, Nick Nolte, comedian Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice.
