Jeremy Piven On 'Entourage' Movie: 'That's the Rumor Right Now' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 9th 2011 7:00PM
Despite the somewhat underwhelming 'Entourage,' finale, fans of the show (and the cast themselves) have been clamoring for a post-script movie. So when Jeremy Piven stopped by 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) to promote his new film 'I Melt You,' the ladies had to ask about the 'Entourage' project.

Piven was optimistic but vague about the potential film. "We're teed up for a movie in a way that, you know, Ari has this conundrum that he's facing," Piven said, "which is either to rule the world or to honor his love to his wife." Just to clarify, Sheryl Underwood asked, "So the movie's going to happen?" and Piven, without giving a solid confirmation, responded in the affirmative. "That's the rumor right now."

Jane Lynch Emmys openerJane Lynch kicked off the 2011 Emmy Awards with a musical number filled with celebrity cameos (Leonard Nimoy!), which, coincidentally, is how Jimmy Fallon kicked off the 2010 ceremony.

So, how did the two compare?

Well, Fallon went big with a 'Glee' tribute and Bruce Springsteen cover, while Lynch took the solo route with an original number about the magic of television and how everyone on TV lives in the same building.

Both recruited a ton of celebs to help out, but Fallon had the stars sing along with him while Lynch dropped into different show sets. Both included a requisite 'Dancing With the Stars' dig, though.

Who nabbed the bigger stars?

'Entourage' Series Finale Recap: Everybody Wins, Except the Audience

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 12th 2011 1:40PM
For eight seasons, 'Entourage' has been a fun, breezy buddy comedy about a group of childhood friends living the good life in Hollywood. It's been a good time to watch, despite the fact that everything always works out for the guys in the end, which often led the show to hastily resolve season-long conflicts and gloss over tension between the characters.

But last night's series finale was dripping with more gloss than usual. In fact, it was all gloss. In one of the most baffling, problematic half-hours of TV I've ever seen, everything worked out for everyone -- except the audience. We were left feeling cheated over rushed catharsis, a love story that the show didn't bother to show us and characters that reconciled without ever earning it.

The whole thing revolved around an allegedly torrid love affair between Vince and Sophia, the Vanity Fair reporter who'd interviewed him several weeks before and adamantly refused his advances on the grounds that she's a serious journalist who doesn't date her subjects.

But, as we know by now, Vinny Chase's charm knows no bounds, and they fell madly in love with each other and decided to get married in Paris after hanging out for just 24 hours. All of which would have been fine, if 'Entourage' hadn't asked its audience to just take the show's word for it.

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

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!

Celebrity chef Bobby Flay was sitting in for Hoda Kotb on Tuesday, co-hosting the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 7 AM ET on NBC) with Kathie Lee Gifford. He'll also be sitting in for Ari Gold, at least with with Mrs. Ari, on the new season of 'Entourage.' Flay previewed his multi-episode arc in the final season of HBO's hit half-hour Hollywood comedy, which will put him at odds with the frenetic agent Ari Gold, played by Jeremy Piven.

"My character, as Bobby Flay, has not actually appeared yet ... I can not confirm nor deny that I am a candidate for Mrs. Ari's next boyfriend. 'Cause you know they broke up."

"I don't know why she stuck around so long," replied Kathie Lee.

"Well, who knows, he's got a big agency," Flay quipped.

Jeremy Piven Says He Can't Do 'The Worm,' But He Can Do the Splits (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 21st 2011 7:15AM
Jeremy Piven does the splitsJeremy Piven may not be giving himself enough credit. On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:37PM ET on CBS), he and David Letterman were talking about dancing. Piven said he had mastered one dance move in the late '80s, 'The Worm.'

Letterman kept hinting around that he wanted Piven to give a demonstration, but Piven wasn't going for it. "If I did it now I'd hurt myself."

But then the crowd got behind Letterman, and put the pressure on Piven. "Can't really disappoint them now," Letterman goaded about the growing clamor from the studio audience.

"I'll warm up and we'll see what we got," Piven said. He then dropped into the splits, and we're talking all the way to the ground. This was impressive for two reaons. One, that he had that kind of flexibility, and two, that his pants had that kind of flexibility.

It's National Hug Day -- Let's Hug It Out, Bitch

by Jean Bentley, posted Jan 21st 2011 4:17PM
Ari Gold, Jeremy Piven, EntourageAri Gold became an iconic TV character from the first foul-mouthed insults he ever uttered on 'Entourage.' But perhaps his most memorable moment came with coulda-been sweet peace offering, "Let's hug it out, bitch."

Since today's National Hug Day (according to this awesomely primitive website), after the jump you'll find a clip of Piven discussing the scene during a 2006 Paley Center panel. "Our inspiration, Ari, for this character, I saw him one time actually hugging my brother in law, Adam McKay, who's a screenwriter and director. He was hugging him so tightly it looked like Adam was maybe lactating and that Ari needed milk."

There's also a clip of infamous scene. You're welcome. And yes, we'll accept your gratitude for reminding you of this glorious TV milestone in hug form only.

On 'Entourage,' Ari Needs to Learn How to Shut Up (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 30th 2010 3:40AM
On 'Entourage,' Ari Needs to Learn How to Shut UpBeing an agent in Hollywood obviously requires a "Type-A" personality and a certain amount of egotism. But on 'Entourage' (Sun., 10:30PM ET on HBO), Ari Gold may be going too far with these things. There's being "aggressive," and then there's crossing the line. And Mr. Gold (played by Jeremy Piven) is definitely crossing it.

Vince's Scary Stunt on 'Entourage'Vince was forced to defend his macho side on 'Entourage' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO) when director Nick Cassavetes (playing himself) bullied him into performing a dangerous stunt. His mission? To jump a car over and through flames, with the director riding beside him, camera in hand, to get the best shot.

[Spoiler alert.]


Eric, Ari and Drama were on set to make sure the stunt went OK -- but it didn't.

As a stunned but stable Vince recovered, Ari said, "I saw my life flash before my eyes." Replied Vince: "I didn't -- I just saw Ma. She was really pissed."

But what about the director? Check out the video.

Jeremy Piven Pranks 'Tonight Show' Intern Over Sushi (VIDEO)

Jeremy Piven Pranks 'Tonight Show' InternTemper tantrums among the supposedly "grown-up" Hollywood set are so commonplace these days, it'd be hard for anyone working amid all that drama to realize they were being punk'd. On 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), poor Eric, an NBC page, was on the receiving end of Jeremy Piven's (feigned) enraged reaction to being served a plate of sushi back in the green room.

"I got mercury poisoning, you know that right?" Piven asks the intern. "You think that's funny? I almost [beep] died!" The actor starts cussing, kicking furniture and throwing things. Later backstage, Piven says to Eric, "I don't know if I can hold it together, and it kind of is your fault," before chucking a glass of water in his face.

Eventually, Piven reveals that it was all a giant practical joke, and the reward for Eric's pain is the chance to appear on 'Entourage' -- under one condition...

Huh?!? Was that really an Entourage season finale? It was so... good. It was as if every conversation I've ever had with my buddies after another season of Entourage and all of the "man, I really wish they had done this or included that" requests were jammed into this episode. Maybe Entourage should have double-length installments more often.

Anything to ensure that Ari always walks around with a paintball gun.
