'Entourage' presents a bunch of characters who are either arrogant, slick or cocky, and work in the television industry.
Despite the recession, "Entourage" is not planning a shortage of guest stars when it enters the sixth season next month. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Matt Letscher, William Fichtner and Scott Caan will be involved in a multi-episode arc.
Letscher plays a character named Dan Coakley who is described as handsome but arrogant TV studio executive who oversees Johnny Drama's TV series. The actor may be familiar as Nathan Stone on ABC's "Eli Stone" before the show got canceled.
Meanwhile, Fichtner aka the Alexander Mahone of "Prison Break", will play a slick TV producer named Phil Yagoda. His character had a hit teen series in the 1990s and is trying to remake it with Drama.
For Caan, this would be one of his early TV appearances. The actor who is known to play Turk Malloy in "Ocean's Eleven" and its two sequels, will take the role of Scotty Lavin. Scotty is a "cocky and highly competitive manager who acts tough and trash talks to cover up how insecure he is" and he sees Eric Murphy as a threat.
The sixth season of the HBO drama premieres July 12. Beside the new additions, the new chapter will bring in a bunch of guest stars playing themselves such as Lil Wayne, Tom Brady, Zac Efron, Aaron Sorkin and LeBron James. Meanwhile, Gary Cole, Autumn Reeser and Kate Mara will play as agents and assistants to the boys.
