Briefly: The Entourage movie is finally filming and, as fans of the show know, Ari Gold’s (Jeremy Piven) old assistant Lloyd (Rex Lee) has long been an agent. That leaves an opening and, Deadline reports, that role will be filled by none other than Kid Cudi, also known as Scott Mescudi. Mescudi will next appear in Need for Speed alongside Aaron Paul.

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]

Warner Bros. has something up their sleeves, but dammed if we know what it is.

(The Twins are the Hanna-Barbera superhero team that’s part of the Super Friends.) The “film” stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis and is slated for a 2014 release. Here’s the kicker. This is not a real movie. So what the heck is the poster for and why is it arriving at comic book shops? Read More »

Whether the world will even still want an Entourage movie by the time it gets made is up for debate, but the reason it hasn’t gotten one yet is pretty clear. Although Warner Bros. greenlit the project back in January, report after report has indicated that the cast isn’t so thrilled with the salaries being offered. Or rather, most of the cast isn’t.
According to a new story, Jeremy Piven is being compensated handsomely for his involvement in the movie. This is proving an issue because he’s getting paid so much, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, and Kevin Dillon are upset that they aren’t making as much as he is.
