Anybody who watches HBO television is a huge fan -- perhaps even fanatic -- of Jeremy Piven. Playing the role of Ari Gold in Entourage, Piven has had audiences laughing the past couple of years with his agent antics. Though television is where Piven is now a big deal, the actor still keeps to his film career with projects such as Smokin' Aces and now The Kingdom.
Jeremy Piven for The Kingdom
According to Variety, Universal has picked up Jeremy Piven to join Jamie Foxx, Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman in The Kingdom. Peter Berg will direct.
Michael Mann and Scott Stuber will produce.
Piven will play a conniving American diplomat in Saudi Arabia who assists an FBI team sent to the Middle East to capture terrorists responsible for an attack on Americans working in Riyadh.
The script was written by Matthew Carnahan.
Continue watching Jeremy Piven on HBO's Entourage. The last episode, "Vegas Baby", was one of the best and one can't help but love Johnny Drama also.
