Jeremy Piven Gets 'Tonight Show' Page He Pranked an 'Entourage' Cameo (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 4th 2011 9:30AM
Jeremy Piven, 'The Tonight Show'The last time Jeremy Piven appeared on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), he played a prank on one of the pages -- who did remind us a bit of Kenneth from '30 Rock' -- that had the poor guy standing in the hall terrified.

Piven pretended to have a full-blown Hollywood superstar tantrum about there being sushi in his dressing room. But afterward he felt bad about it, so he decided to help the guy out with his dreams of being in show business.

He pulled some strings down at 'Entourage' and managed to get the guy a part on the show, and it is definitely something to see. Jay Leno managed to squeeze in the page's entire scene during 'The Tonight Show,' with an arrow to help us identify him. Taking Hollywood by storm, this guy!

If anyone believes that that was anything other than a typical celebrity temper tantrum, you need your head examined, and probably voted for Obama.

What are people getting pissed off about? If this wasn't a setup, why were there cameras in his dressing room? Do you think they would just have hidden cameras in their guests' rooms just in case they do something entertaining? If anything this was probably a complete and utter skit, as the page is clearly making faces to the camera and his reaction doesn't seem all that genuine. All these people sounding off on Piven and playing pranks need to give it a rest. If he was on the bad end of it you all would be applauding it.

Guy seemed cool afterwards, but isn't a prank a type of bullying? I know we're not suppose to be touchy/ feely but unfortunately we see actors (of both sexes) throwing 'pranks' all the time then say....'just kiddin'. I know this one was a prank because the assistant couldn't keep a straight face, but still....

Piven is clearly a spoiled, petulant, immature brat. This was not a "prank", anymore so than a bank robber caught in the act who then claims his mask and gun were all part of his "joke". What else could Piven have said? He is not man enough to admit that he was wrong and had treated another person very badly; no. Instead, he lied. So, Piven is a liar, and bad tempered. Add that to a very bad actor who keeps playing the same part over and over under different titles.

Too bad the intern didn't just knock Piven's crooked teeth down his throat...as a "prank" of course.

Shame on people who think it is funny to make fools out of people like this. Leno, Letterman, Entourage etc. are things that a lot don't watch because what some sick people think is funny at other peoples feelings is just sick. That is why the world is like it is now with idiots like all these so called "funny" people. What if this man would have had a heart attack because he was trying to do & keep his job by doing it well. People that have all that money can never think of anyone but themselves untill the table is turned. Then they want everyone to feel sorry for them when they overdose, get into a scandal or otherwise. Leno, Letterman & the people on entourage are prima-donnas. Just like to one that lost his show with 2 1/2 men. Hope they join him soon & cry in their beer.

I have news for you people... EVERYONE plays pranks. It's not just a case of them picking on "those beneath them". There's been much worse done by every day people. Just because it was someone famous, people are all up in arms over it. If it had been someone you pass on the street, no one would have even heard about it and everyone would just go on living their lives.

A prank is MEANT to humiliate people, regardless of who plays it. It's not just Piven or Ashton Kutcher or any other celebrity for that matter. It's the human race. People play pranks, people get humiliated, and people MOVE ON. I think all of you should.

He doesn't care that he pranked him, he just felt bad for doing it, since he was so innocent.

These people don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. Everyone is considered fodder for their own pleasure no matter how they may hurt them or humiliate them. That's showbiz folks, just filled with a bunch of A--HOLES.
