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.

As Dom Toretto and Brian O’Conner rev their engines for Universal’s Fast & Furious 6, DreamWorks is preparing a high-speed franchise of its own.

Casting got off to a strong start last fall as Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper joined the cast, picking up Imogen Poots and Kid Cudi along the way.

While fans have been very vocal regarding Michael Bay’s comments about his company’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, Ninja Turtles, one thing that hasn’t really been discussed is the human element. While the turtles themselves are essential, the supporting characters are a huge part of the universe. So will Casey Jones and April O’Neil make appearances? We don’t know yet. What we do know is hip hop aritst Kid Cudi (who hit song “Pursuit of Happiness” was recently remixed in Project X) is most likely helping with the film in some way.
Cudi, real name Scott Mescudi, first posted a photo on his Tumblr of a Ninja Turtle with a caption suggesting he was going to be part of the film, next tweeted about Bay’s comments and then producer Brad Fuller retweeted an article about the whole situation. Seems like a good bet he’ll be part of the movie. How so exactly? Speculate and see the evidence after the jump. Read More »
