Though Jeremy Piven has done a number of film roles, it was HBO's Entourage that placed him on the map. No shame, as multiple television series have been credited for creating stardom or saving a falling star. (FYI: Piven was never falling)
While discussing upcoming projects with MTV, Piven lets them no know of one film that nobody knows about.
Jeremy Piven Looking to Don Ready
"I'm gonna start a movie that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are producing called Don Ready, " he said of his next flick, which will reunite Piven with his "Old School" co-star and the director of Anchorman and Talladega Nights.
Piven working with Ferrell? Sounds too good to be true.
Indeed, the movie is so secretive that nothing is known except that it's a comedy, and Piven plans to shoot it before next spring's impending film production strike. Since McKay and Ferrell are attached, it can be assumed that Don Ready will be a similarly surreal flick, and that Ferrell will step in front of the cameras for at least a cameo. "We're going to start that soon," Piven said. "I hope you're ready for Don Ready."
As an added bonus, Piven discusses what is left of this amazing season of Entourage.
"With 'Entourage,' we have the last three episodes coming up, and we're gonna end with such a bang," Piven said. "We were over shooting in Cannes and we'd do guerilla-style; we'd just take a camera and run. And because they're used to so many cameras in Cannes, they wouldn't think anything of it. So we'd get shots with hundreds of Parisian people walking past the frame — it'll look big and lush. I'm really proud of this season."
Any word on an Entourage: The Movie? Though I already think it a bad idea (unless Piven finds a new up-and-comer to represent), check out what Jeremy thinks here.
