Howard to Appear in Entourage
Entourage star Jerry Ferrara and Ryan Howard were chummy behind the batting cage today at Dodger Stadium.
There’s a reason for that.
Howard makes an appearance in the Sept. 12 season finale of Entourage on HBO.
Ferrara, who plays Turtle, and Howard would not discuss Howard’s scene, although Ferrara said, “Being the season finale it’s kind of a frantic episode. Ryan’s in a position to help out my character a little bit.”
“It sounded like he had a good time,” Ferrara said. “He’s a fan of the show. We’re obviously a big fan of his. As a Yankee fan I didn’t know if he was going to be too happy that the storyline was with my character, but we didn’t talk Yankees.”
Personally, I would have demanded a scene with Emanuelle Chriqui, but I’m pretty sure she has a restraining order against me. (It was just a misunderstanding!)
Howard and Chase Utley also appear in an upcoming episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
