Jonathan Cheban using ‘KUWTK’ ending to transition into movies, TV
Could Foodgod become Moviegod?
It appears that’s what Jonathan Cheban, 46, is aiming for, as he’s gearing up to start filming “The Cuisine War” opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Billy Zane in January.
“I’m the poster of it,” Foodgod told Page Six over the phone on Friday. “I am front and center with such great talent.”
“The Cuisine War” will tell the story of two food critics who are “competing against each other in the culinary world on the highest level,” according to a press release. Foodgod plays the “Galloping Gourmet Guru.”
Foodgod is trying to take advantage of the end of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which he’s appeared on for more than 10 years, by expanding his horizons with film and hopefully a food-related TV show of his own.
“We’re obviously finishing filming ‘Kardashians,’ and then something like this comes along before I go and do my own show when we can travel again,” he shared. “Becoming Foodgod in real life … I’m getting such amazing opportunities.”
Having been Kim Kardashian’s best friend for more than a decade, Foodgod admitted he’s going to miss having E!’s cameras following him around LA.
“Of course I’m sad. It’s my life, I don’t know anything else. It was my life for 13 years or whatever it’s been,” said Cheban, who is back in Miami after celebrating Halloween with Kim in LA. “That’s been my main thing that everybody knows me for and that I love and the family that I love. – Source
