Vanilla Ice hasn't been completely off the Hollywood radar since his music career hit a lull; he's starred in his own home renovation series, "The Vanilla Ice Project", since 2010 and appeared in the Adam Sandler flick "That's My Boy".
But the "Ice, Ice, Baby" singer is looking to change up his resume a bit with a new reality show called "Vanilla Ice Goes Amish", which will premiere on the DIY network later this year. The show challenges Ice, real name Robert Van Winkle, to hang with an Amish community to learn craftsmanship skills from them.
Ice isn't the only musician heading to DIY; Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates will be doing a home renovation show there as well, as will Reverend Run from Run DMC.
“Vanilla Ice Goes Amish” is a real thing. well, at least a tv show. nyti.ms/17gFGNE
