Kevin Connolly is eager to get back behind the camera once “Entourage” puts the top up on its Lincoln Continental this year. What film project has attracted him to yell into an old timey megaphone you ask? Well, it’s none other than a biopic based on the life of Kimbo Slice for some reason. Here Kevin explains his attraction to the project in words that isn’t grammar.

“Kimbo Slice is known as one of the first YouTube celebrities. He was the first person I ever sat in front of a computer and typed somebody’s name into YouTube. His fights ended up on the internet, his backyard fights, and he all of the sudden… became this celebrity.”

“It’s so personal to sit with a writer who you don’t know and tell them your deepest, darkest secrets and your life story, so I think it took him a second to get used to. But him and the writer really hit it off, and I couldn’t be happier with the script. I’m ready to go.”

He couldn’t be happier with the script? No surprise there. I’m just glad that we’ll have Spielberg’s Abraham Lincoln biopic before we have Kevin Connolly’s Kimbo Slice biopic. It seems like a win for the universe. But who will play Kimbo? Time for a casting short list. I nominate Bradley Cooper, Tom Hardy, Marcia Gay Harden, and Michael Clarke Duncan. Only time will reveal the victor. (The Wrap)

Another ‘Entourage’ Season 7 Trailer With the Usual Drama and Drama http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/another-entourage-season-7-trailer-with-the-usual-drama-and-drama/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/another-entourage-season-7-trailer-with-the-usual-drama-and-drama/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Turtle takes a hit while covered in gasoline, the dummy. Uuuuuggghhhhh. "Entourage" is coming back and it looks like "Entourage." Vince is having complications with a movie he's starring in (wank), Drama can't get work (wank, wank), Turtle's trying to be an entrepreneur (wankity wank), E's trying to find grown men's suits that fit him and getting all gaga over Sloan (wankity doo), and Ari is yelling at people about agency expansion, growth, and erections (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaank). These are what we at SJ like to call "rich man problems." Not having enough water to fill your cup of Ramen Noodles up to the indented line, that's a poor man problem. Unless your Turtle. I guess for him that could be a considered a rich man problem. The kid's gotta eat. "Entourage" premieres on HBO Sunday June 27th at 10:30PM EST.  Check out the trailer after the jump...

‘Entourage’ Season 7 Preview http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/entourage-season-7-preview/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/entourage-season-7-preview/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Things are just peachy keen for Vince and the gang. So much so that they decided to spend the afternoon on the edge of a cliff shootin' the shit, and you better believe HBO was rolling the cameras. Seriously, could they have not come up with a better promo than this for season 7 of "Entourage"? The whole "we're just bros hanging out and living life" schtick got stale in season 3. Newsflash guys: you don't live in the real world! The stakes on the show don't matter because they usually consist of Vince toiling over which hot girl to f*ck. But no matter how it shakes out, he still gets to f*ck a hot girl.  Meanwhile on Main Street, some poor schmo is deciding which kid of his to sacrifice so he can feed the rest of his family. I realize it's not as dire as having zero bars on your iPhone, but it's in the same ballpark. Check out the preview for Season 7 of "Entourage" below.
