Haley Joel Osment Roped in to ‘Entourage’

Entourage header

Briefly: Here’s a curious piece of casting. Haley Joel Osment has joined the cast of the currently-shooting Entourage movie, written and directed by Doug Ellin. Osment, however, won’t be playing himself, which would have made sense in that wacky world. Instead he’s playing Travis McCree, the son of Billy Bob Thorton‘s character Larsen McCree, who is paying for Vince’s (Adrian Grenier) new movie. Travis is sent to oversee everything and gets a little too caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle. The film doesn’t have a release date, but late 2014 or early 2015 is likely. [Deadline]

Veronica Mars

The Veronica Mars following was never huge, but it was devoted. Enough so that several years later, they were able to raise millions of dollars to make the sequel happen. But now that the film is a reality, is it likely to draw in any new fans, or is this strictly for the Marshmallows among us?

While Rob Thomas would no doubt love to grow his fanbase, the marketing so far has been aimed directly at existing fans, with cameos and in-jokes only a true Marshmallow could love. Today’s brand-new poster isn’t much different. Check it out after the jump.

Ultimately, though, the studio was able to wrangle together all six principal cast members with an eye toward shooting in January 2014.

Now that month has finally rolled around, and the actors are indeed ready to work. Hit the jump to check out a couple of behind-the-scenes images of Vince and his boys, reunited once more.

It’s unclear which role Gad would play, but the title character would make sense. He’s co-writing with Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez. Gad is also co-writing Triplets, the potential sequel to Twins. [Deadline]
