HBO’s Entourage will be a little bit crowded when the new season kicks off in July. Rapper 50 Cent will reportedly join the cast of the series that revolves around Vincent Chase, a young A-list movie star, and his childhood friends from Bayside, Queens, New York City, as they navigate the unfamiliar terrain of Hollywood, California. According to The Insider, the infamous singer has been spotted filming scenes for the show on Friday, joining cast members Jerry Ferrara, Adrian Grenier and series creator Doug Ellin on the set.
This is not the first time a rapper has graced the show. Entourage has easily carved a niche in the rap community by booking rappers like Kanye West, T.I. and Snoop Dogg. Moreover, both Saigon and Bow Wow have also recurrently appeared on the show.
“50 looked like he was enjoying his time as he drove on the streets of Los Angeles in a white convertible Rolls Royce,” The Insider reported, adding that the rapper’s episode is set to air in August.
As of this moment, however, 50 Cent’s participation on Entourage is not yet known.
This is the latest casting news for Entourage‘s sixth season. Gary Cole has been confirmed to be joining the cast as a regular for the new season while Lil’ Wayne is expected to appear in an episode as himself. Also guest starring are Tom Brady, Autumn Reeser, and Swarnendra Verma.More recently, it has also been announced that Matt Letscher, who last starred in Eli Stone, Prison Break star William Fichtner, and Scott Caan, who is credited for Oceans Eleven, will also be getting multi-episode arcs on Entourage. High School Musical star Zac Efron is also set to appear.
Aside from Entourage, 50 Cent has also been cast in several upcoming movies such as Streets of Blood, Dead Man Running, Spectacular Regret, The Dance, The Ski Mask Way, and Twelve.
