Now that the main cast from HBO’s hit series “Entourage” has all signed on to star in an upcoming film version of the show, the producers are working to put together a bang-up supporting cast. With the latest addition reportedly being New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, they’ve sure got our approval.
According to TMZ, Gronkowski’s theatrical manager Henry Penzi said Gronk is expected to make an appearance as himself in the “Entourage” movie. A number of well-known athletes such as Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson and Michael Phelps appeared in the “Entourage” series over the years, so Gronk will likely just be making a cameo rather than playing any type of significant role.
Earlier this week, rumors surfaced that Kate Upton could potentially play the female lead in the movie. That was enough to get us excited, but the addition of Gronkowski makes it that much better.
And hey, the Gronkowski brothers are currently pitching an animated series around Hollywood. Maybe this will help Rob get his foot in the door. We’ll cross our fingers.
