"Entourage" star Kevin Connolly has been tagged to direct The Game's upcoming music video, "Camera Phone," a track off the deluxe edition of his latest album L.A.X.

According to People, the actor/director, who is most known for his role as "E" on the hit show "Entourage," was recently hired by the popular West Coast rapper to put together the video, which also stars R&B crooner Ne-Yo.

"I got hired on Wednesday (October 29) and we're shooting on Tuesday,"
Connolly told People. "I've been scrambling around all weekend."

"It's fun because the turnaround is quick," he added. "You shoot it, you edit that week, and a week later Game will have his video. It's amazing."

In an effort to make his video more unique, Connolly plans to mimic the design and feel of Martin Scorsese's classic gangster movie Goodfellas for the clip.

"He's gonna be dressed up in suits and that kind of thing," he added. "I just want to make this different than anything he's ever done."

While there is said date for the video premiere, Connolly says it may be out as little as next week.

Known for utilizing various hip-hop elements and themes throughout the show, HBO's hit series "Entourage" has made a name for itself in the rap community with numerous cameos by rappers including Kanye West, T.I. and Snoop Dogg. Both Saigon and Bow Wow have also earned recurring roles on the show. "Entourage" is currently in its fifth season.
