We have a feeling that Ari Gold is going to be tormenting his new assistant all "day and night." Indeed, production is about to begin on the upcoming Entourage film, and rapper-actor Kid Cudi has been cast to play Ari's new assistant. In other words, Ari has found his new Lloyd.
As fans of the HBO series Entourage will remember, Lloyd was Ari's long-suffering agency assistant until becoming an agent in his own right. Now, Kid Cudi will play the guy who takes Lloyd's place. Let's just say, we don't think that being Ari's righthand man would be a fun job.
Kid Cudi is best known in music circles for his breakout 2008 single, "Day 'n' Nite." However, he has had quite a bit of success in transitioning into acting of late. He will be seen opposite Aaron Paul in next month's big-budget action flick Need for Speed, and he also has roles in upcoming films like rom-com Two Night Stand and drama The Ever After.
Entourage ran for eight seasons of HBO before signing off in 2011, and now the entire cast is returning for the highly anticipated film. Among the key stars are Adrian Grenier as Vince, Kevin Connolly as E, and Kevin Dillon as Drama.
We can't wait to see Ari and Kid Cudi hugging it out!
Do you plan on seeing the Entourage film? And do you think Kid Cudi is a good choice for the film?
