Kevin Connolly

'Johnny Bananas' Lawsuit is

a Heap of Monkey Crap

Kevin Connolly thinks the MTV star who's suing "Entourage" is a frickin' moron -- claiming there's no way in hell the show could've ever stolen the name Johnny Bananas from him.

Connolly was leaving Dan Tana's in Hollywood last night ... when he told us, "I think he's crazy ... he's bananas if he thinks he's gonna get the money."

TMZ broke the story ... former "Real World" star Johnny Devenanzio recently filed a lawsuit against the people behind "Entourage" ... claiming he owns the rights to the name Johnny Bananas, because he used the nickname during his stint on MTV. 

Devenanzio claims "Entourage" was blatantly attempting to "capitalize on the name recognition" when they ran a storyline in which Johnny Drama voices a cartoon monkey named Johnny Bananas.

Drama.

I'd be more inclined to believe Johnny then Kevin, only because I remember him being called that many, many years ago. Plus, Kevin is just a D-list actor. Who cares or pays any attention to what that loser says?

We had a kid in public school we called Johnny Banana, maybe he should sue since it's obvious he had the name before either of them (30 years ago)

I have a massive crush on Kevin. But he scares me as is his on-screen romances make more sense than his real life choices. :)

Name recognition? Most of america doesnt know who this ass fromteh real world is eventhough he seems to think he is astar. Perhaps he should also sue anyone who has every made a mob movie where the term is used as well as every old school italian New Yorker. My grandpa used to use it to refer to someone being stupid so perhaps he wants to sue Pop as well?
