(AP Photo/United Nations Foundation, Gary He) (Newser) – Ronan Farrow, definite son of Mia Farrow and alleged son of Woody Allen, has already gained a degree of fame thanks to his mom's admission that he just might actually be Frank Sinatra's love child. But soon the 25-year-old could be a household name: Page Six reports that he's about to close a deal with MSNBC. While he won't have his own show right away, the network plans to have him "work across the whole lineup" and "build his TV news credentials," a source says. The ultimate plan? He'll be the "face of the network," as Anderson Cooper is for CNN.
