The Entourage movie was... a thing... that happened, sadly. Vincent Chase rode again. And apparently, there might even be another Entourage movie. If the franchise is going to continue to be a presence in our lives (like a kind of pop culture wart or ingrown toenail that pops up every couple of years), we might as well try to understand one of the biggest mysteries of Entourage: Just how does the show get all of these famous people in to play themselves during filming? In an interview with Uproxx's Mike Ryan, Armie Hammer -- who plays himself as an asshole who is also the ex of Vinnie's current girlfriend Emily Ratajkowski -- admits that he wasn't even supposed to be in the movie originally.
I think the way it works with the cameos on Entourage is they basically sent out mass emails, "Can anybody show up? Please? Just show up. Help us!," kind of thing. I actually know Jeremy Piven and he's like, "Hey, dude, are you going to be around on Tuesday?" I was like, "Yeah, I'm an out of work actor, I'm around all the time. I have nothing else to do." He's like, "You want to shoot a day on Entourage?" I'm like, "sure!"For more information, check out the rest of the very delightful interview (which also includes Hammer's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. costar Henry Cavill). For Entourage-related tears over the presence of a "show business satire" that confirms all of the worst impulses of the industry, please watch several episodes of BoJack Horseman and cry accordingly.
