The Black Eyed Peas have had a successful year with their respective singles and latest album ‘The Beginning,’ and 2011 is already shaping up to be even bigger. The group’s members are planning on branching out into other areas of entertainment, with frontman will.i.am setting his sights on Hollywood and rapper Taboo planning on sharing his experiences with BEP in a new memoir.

Will.i.am will light up the big screen in the animated family film ‘Rio,’ set for release April 8. Will stars alongside Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Foxx, George Lopez and more in the cartoon about a domesticated macaw who goes on an adventure in Rio de Janeiro with his love interest. Will most recently appeared in the 2009 blockbuster ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ and previously lent his voice to the animated flick ‘Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa’ in ’08.

Meanwhile, Taboo is diving into the literary world, prepping the release of his autobiography ‘Fallin’ Up: My Story,’ which tells of his difficulties growing up biracial. “The whole book is about me growing up in an environment that was predominately Mexican and Asian,” he told RollingStone.com. “When I was writing the book, there were times I would get choked up. It has a lot to do with my grandmother because she was the person who propelled my enthusiasm for entertainment — she believed in me and supported me.”

The quartet most recently released its sixth album ‘The Beginning,’ featuring the lead single ‘The Time (Dirty Bit).’ The LP debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, selling 119,000 copies in its first week.
