While Adrien Grenier says he's looking out for the whole cast...
It appears that the Entourage movie isn't being held up by Jerry Ferrara. After Mark Wahlberg said earlier this week that the film version of the HBO series is being held up because the cast is "being greedy," Ferrara--who played Turtle on the show--told TMZ that he doesn't care how much he got paid and noted, "I'd do it for free."
Meanwhile, Adrian Grenier said on his Instagram account:
To all Entourage fans. I owe it to you to make a couple things clear. I take my role as Vince on the show & off very seriously. All decisions I make personally & for business are for the principle of friendship and brotherhood. It has, & never will be about the money for me. I promise. I will always stand up for the boys (that includes you) & do what I can to make sure they are treated fairly, and not be taken advantage of by anybody. The spirit of Entourage is about sharing the opportunities given to us and I will sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY. I assure you, despite the perception, there is no greed in my heart. Remember, it will all work out in the end. It always does.
Whether that means that he's holding up the film because someone is getting paid unfairly more than everyone else or not isn't clear. Jeremy Piven and Kevin Connelly have reportedly already signed deals for the film.
