Kevin Connolly Breaks Leg on 'Entourage' Set - Guess Who Sat On It?
Kevin Connolly has broken his leg - but it won't halt the 'Entourage' movie.
Kevin Connolly has broken his leg on the set of the Entourage movie after Jerry Ferrara - who plays Turtle - fell on it. Connolly was trying to catch a pass from Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson but tripped on a sprinkler and felt the full weight of Ferrara, who fell on his leg.
Kevin Connolly On The Set of 'Entourage'
According to TMZ.com, it was a pretty clean break - and Turtle has lost a considerable amount of weight in recent years - so it shouldn't affect filming too much.
The long delayed movie picks up where the acclaimed HBO series left off, chronicling the continuing career of movie star Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) and his entourage of friends. As well as original stars Grenier, Connolly, Ferrara, Kevin Dillon and, of course, Jeremy Piven - the film reportedly features cameos from Billy Bob Thornton, Liam Neeson, Piers Morgan, Kate Upton and Emily Ratajkowski. Rhys Coiro, Constance Zimmer and Perrey Reeves are also back for the ride.
The Entourage movie is set to hit theaters on June 12, 2015 - four years after the series wrapped. Series creator Doug Ellin is directing the movie on a $30 million budget and from a script he finished in September 2012.
According to Deadline, there was off-screen drama last year when Grenier, Dillon, Ferrara and to a lesser degree Connolly were looking for "some of the movie's backend." It was alleged that Piven - probably quite rightly - was getting a larger cut and the rest of the team weren't happy. They eventually hugged it out and made their respective deals in late October.
We can't wait for this one.
