The cameras are already rolling on Entourage creator Doug Ellin’s cinematic version of his Hollywood comedy drama, which is making the jump from HBO to the big screen with the whole gang back for more. And, like some terrifying talent tornado, it’s continuing to hoover up actors, with Haley Joel Osment the latest to sign aboard.
Entourage, of course, charts the shifting fortunes of wannabe actor-turned-star Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) and the assembled friends, agents and hangers-on who orbit around his solar centre. The rest of the TV regulars, including Jeremy Piven’s loud-mouthed agent Ari Gold, Kevin Connolly’s dedicated pal/manager Eric “E” Murphy, Kevin Dillon’s dim-but-doting older brother Johnny “Drama” Chase and Jerry Ferrara’s dogsbody/mogul Turtle are all appearing again, along with Perrey Reeves as Ari’s wife Melissa and Constance Zimmer as studio boss Dana Gordon.
Slowly but surely we’ve also been learning about new additions, including Billy Bob Thornton as a billionaire looking to fund Vincent’s latest starring role (a new take on Dracula). Exactly what Osment will be playing isn’t clear, but given the series' style he could either be some unfortunate fictional character who crosses paths with the regulars or cameoing as some version of himself. We’ll find out when the film arrives on screen next year.
Outside of that, Osment will also be seen in Kevin Smith's horror Tusk and is a recurring character on Amazon comedy Alpha House.
