Diddy to Guest Star on Seventh Season of ‘Entourage’
Our favorite bros from Queens are coming back to HBO for the seventh season of 'Entourage' and, as usual, producers are planning some big time cameos for the popular Hollywood show. The new season will sport an appearance from none other than Diddy, who joins the ranks of Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Kanye West and other hip-hop royalty who have made cameos on the program. Series creator Doug Ellin also confirmed appearances from Lenny Kravitz, Mike Tyson, Jessica Simpson, John Stamos and the show's executive producer Mark Wahlberg.
The Diddy appearance will come during what's sure to be a quixotic quest for actor Jerry Ferrara under his Turtle guise. The character's storyline throughout the season involves starting a new business and all the ups and downs that come with trying to rustle up the big investments necessary to achieve success in a luxury town. Ferrara is slated to encounter Diddy and Wahlberg on a golf course as he tries to get his funds up.
On the Wahlberg front, the singer, actor and producer intends to bring 'Entourage' back as a big focus in his career with plans for a movie based on the series.
"I am more focused on making that movie than my own films," Wahlberg told MTV News last week. "I just think we can make a great movie. I think people always wanted [it] and have complained that the episodes are too short -- they've always wanted more. I think we're going to do it. We just have to end strong, and this season is, by far, the best season so far."
The seventh season premieres of 'Entourage' on HBO on June 27.
