Kevin Connolly Broken Leg on the Set of 'Entourage'

3/24/2014 5:00 PM PDT
There are some things a hug cannot fix ... like a broken leg.

That's the lesson learned by "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, who broke his leg on the set of the movie last week while trying to catch a pass from Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.

According to our sources, Connolly tripped on a sprinkler while trying to make the play, which resulted in Jerry Ferrara falling on his leg.

We're told it was a pretty clean break -- think of how bad it would have been pre-weight loss Turtle -- and that filming was not interrupted at all by the injury.

Way to take one for the team, E.

Nearly TWENTY of the biggest athletes in the world have cameos in the upcoming "Entourage" movie -- at least, that's all we know of so far (there could be even more!).

So, which huge stars made the cut?? Check out the gallery.

Rob Gronkowski might not be the only athlete with a role in the "Entourage" movie ... 'cause Russell Wilson was spotted on set today and all clues point to cameo. 

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback posed for photos with members of the cast -- including Jeremy Piven and Kid Cudi, who's reportedly playing Ari Gold's new assistant.  

Piers Morgan was also spotted on set -- no word if he's in the flick or just hangin' out.  We already told you Gronk's confirmed to be in the flick. 

As for Wilson -- it pays to win the Super Bowl ... first Letterman, then kickin' it with Jay Z, now a possible movie role?!

Helluva ride ... right Peyton Manning?

'Entourage' Movie Ari and Vince HUGGING IT OUT!!

3/8/2014 12:39 AM PST
It's been 3 years since Ari Gold and Vincent Chase last hugged out it out ... but Friday in Hollywood the two "Entourage" characters finally got their hug on again, bitch.

Jeremy Piven and Adrian Grenier were filming scenes for the new flick yesterday ...  it's unclear what Ari did to warrant the hug -- but we're guessing a bad word or two were used.

E and Drama were also in the scene.

So was Turtle ... but he's skinny now -- so it's hard to spot him (he's in the sling.)

'Entourage' Movie Death on Set

3/4/2014 2:00 PM PST

Tragedy struck on the set of the "Entourage" movie today -- TMZ has learned, a crew member's dog got hit by a car and died.

Sources tell us, Tucker -- a 1-year-old Aussie Shepherd -- somehow escaped from a production trailer and darted onto busy Wilshire Blvd near downtown L.A.

We're told Tucker was immediately taken to a nearby vet, but it was too late. The dog passed away from his injuries. Tucker was surrounded by friends and family at the time of his death.

Goodnight sweet prince.

Jeremy Piven: Peyton's Crappy Game Won't Kill Pitchman Career

2/13/2014 3:18 PM PST

Before the Super Bowl, Jeremy Piven said Peyton Manning was the GOLD STANDARD for a celebrity pitchman -- but after his pathetic performance, is Peyton's star falling in Hollywood?

Piven was leaving Freewheel Sports in Larchmont today and made a strong case for why Peyton's still the man ... but not everyone's convinced.

Some people in the office think Peyton's marketing power took a serious hit on Feb. 2nd -- and it could open the door for other players like Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman to swoop in on those coveted sports-oriented endorsements.

Then again, no one rocks a pair of stunner shades like #18.

'Entourage' Director Bikini Shoot Goes Overboard

Breaking News

"Entourage" director Doug Ellin had a brush with disaster on a yacht this weekend in Miami -- accidentally dropping his expensive camera into the ocean ... after shooting a wild bikini scene for the movie ... but thankfully, the damage was minimal.

Sources on the set tell TMZ, Ellin was stepping off the yacht onto a smaller boat when he accidentally dropped his personal camera into the water. He offered to pay divers $1,000 to find it, but it was impossible.

Luckily, the camera didn't contain any official film footage ... but it did have more than 500 behind-the-scene photos of all the girls in bikinis. Arguably a bigger loss.

Fun fact: the third girl from the right in the pink bikini is Ryan Seacrest's new girl Shayna Taylor ... who landed a role in the movie after her modeling career blew up (thanks to Ryan).

Kevin Dillon BROKEN BONES Injury Won't Keep Me from Shooting 'Entourage' Flick

12/11/2013 12:30 AM PST

Kevin Dillon tells TMZ ... the "Entourage" movie will finally begin shooting in January -- and he won't let a little thing like a BROKEN WRIST keep him from doing his job

Dillon -- who was doing some shopping in Malibu last week -- wouldn't say HOW he jacked up his wrist, but explained that it's not the first time he's suffered the injury.

There was one more thing ... we asked Kev about his truck, the one that embarrassingly broke down on him (in front of our camera) the last time we shot him out ... and he dropped an interesting fact about an unlikely HERO who saved the day.  Check out the clip.

The Real Vincent Chase Tries to BLOCK 'Entourage' Movie

11/22/2013 1:22 PM PST

The "Entourage" movie could be derailed ... because of IDENTITY THEFT!

TMZ has obtained a cease and desist letter -- sent to Warner Bros. -- demanding that the studio make NO reference to Vinnie Chase, the main character played by Adrian Grenier.  The man making the demand -- one Vincent Chase.

Who knew  ... VC is a real guy -- a longtime Hollywood acting coach who's been teaching actors for more than 50 years.  He reportedly met "Entourage" Exec. Prod. Mark Wahlberg in the late '90s.

In the cease and desist letter Chase says he believes the fictional character was named after him ... and says "Entourage" cannot use his name without his "express permission."

Chase claims he griped to producers when the TV show was on ... lots of letters but no lawsuit.

We reached out to Warner Bros. ... so far, no comment.

You can hug it out now, bitch ... 'cuz the movie version of "Entourage" just got green lit.

"Entourage" creator and head writer, Doug Ellin sent a simple message: "It's a go. Love you all."

Ellin posted a black and white photo of the cast, showing that they're all Kumbaya.

As we reported ... the announcement of an "Entourage" movie was delayed because actors Adrian Grenier and Jerry Ferrara were holding out for a bigger piece of the action.

That's all history now ... everybody's back ... cameras will start rolling in January.

'Entourage' Movie It's Gonna Happen!

10/25/2013 4:30 PM PDT

"Entourage" WILL hit the big screen, because the cast and the producers will all sign on with Warner Bros. as early as today  ... TMZ has learned.

As we have previously reported, several people on the show have been holding out for a bigger piece of the action, but everyone has been pointing fingers at each other.  Now we know ... the holdouts have been Adrian Grenier and Jerry Ferrara ... this according to sources connected to the production.

Production sources tell us ... Grenier, Ferrara and some other cast members are resentful that Jeremy Piven will be getting a bigger salary and bigger piece of the back end than them, and they've been haggling.

Our sources say Warner Bros. told the cast and producers that it would give a certain amount of back end, and it was up to them to figure out who gets what.  Our sources say the wheeling and dealing is just about over and lawyers from all sides are trying to ink the deal today.

We're told if it doesn't happen today, it will happen in the next few days by necessity ... there are certain tax issues that create a make-or-break situation for the movie, and that deadline is days away. 

Bottom line -- Kevin Connolly wasn't lying ... we're told IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.

Kevin Connolly 'Entourage' Movie IS HAPPENING All Actors Now On Board

10/21/2013 11:30 AM PDT

It's not official yet, but the "Entourage" movie is 100% happening -- in fact, production is expected to kick off as soon as January -- so says "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly.

Connolly -- who played E on the show -- was out in NYC this morning when we asked about the status of the film.

As we reported, executive producer Mark Wahlberg previously said the project was on hold due to certain "greedy" actors demanding unreasonable sums of money (he didn't specify who) -- but it sounds like they've since solved their money issues.

Connolly now says the project is back on track, and everyone is on board. They're gunning to start production in January. FINALLY. Check the clip for details.

Jerry Ferrara Don't Blame Me Wahlberg I'll Do 'Entourage' for Free

10/18/2013 1:45 PM PDT

1:00 PM PT -- Adrian Grenier shed some light on the "Entourage" feud ... saying, "It has, & never will be about the money for me. I promise."

However on his Instagram, AG added ... the issue really is about money ... but for the entire cast -- "I will sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY." Translation: Someone on the cast is getting paid way more than everyone else, and Adrian's pissed.

The mystery of the "Entourage" movie just got a little deeper -- Turtle, aka Jerry Ferrara tells us he doesn't care how much he gets paid ... and it's not his fault the project's on hold.

TMZ broke the story ... "Entourage" executive producer Mark Wahlberg said the long anticipated film version of the HBO show would start shooting when the "guys stop being so greedy."

Today at LAX, Jerry claimed Mark wasn't pointing the finger at him because, "I'd do it for free."

Here's the deal ... Jeremy Piven and Kevin Connelly have reportedly already signed deals ... so that would leave Jerry, Adrian Grenier, and Kevin Dillon as holdouts.

So, we gotta ask ...
