If you like to see celebrity actors, musicians and athletes take over the editorial duties of major web sites you are in luck this fall. Microsoft's MSN.com site started a program that will let famous people pick out a number of articles and feature them on the front of MSN.com's web site. Today's first celebrity editor is Hugh Jackman. The actor, best known for playing the super healing mutant Wolverine in the X-Men movies, has a new sci-fi family film called Real Steel debuting in theaters today.
Jackman's picks for MSN.com's front page today include a number of articles about one of his favorite sports: cycling. The features include advice for cyclists who get involved in bike-car collisions, the top 10 cities for cycling and an overall guide to cycling and mountain biking. He also picked an article on 15 different ways to cook his favorite dish, lasagna, and of course he has to promote Real Steel via a link to its latest trailer along with a link to an article about how robots are taking over human jobs.
MSN.com will be offering its front page to other celebrities in the coming weeks. The MSN.com blog states that on Fridays during October and November we will see articles and links picked by folks such as New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and pop singer Kelly Clarkson.
