Former G.O.O.D. Music artist Kid Cudi recently discussed his upcoming Need for Speed flick and what fans can expect from his character in the long-awaited Entourage: The Movie.
While he did not reveal too many details, he did confirm buzz about his on-screen Entourage: The Movie role.
You’ll next be seen in the upcoming Entourage movie as Ari’s assistant. Is there anything you learned on the Need for Speed set that you’ll take with you into this new project? Be prepared and be ready. A movie like this, a big-budget action film, is kind of like a couple of takes and you gotta be ready to go. I was like one of those guys anyway, flexing those muscles. The same thing will apply for Entourage. I’ll be prepared and ready. Ari Gold don’t play. (Entertainment Weekly)
Reports last week revealed the Entourage movie is slated to premiere at theaters in June 2015.

Billy Bob Thornton and Haley Joel Osment also star as a father and son while returning cast members also include Perrey Reeves, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Rhys Coiro. (Variety)
Buzz about Cudder taking on the role of main character Ari Gold’s assistant surfaced online a few weeks back.
EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros is just getting underway with the movie version of the hit HBO series Entourage. You know from the series that Ari Gold’s long-suffering assistant Lloyd has moved up to rep. So Ari has found a new assistant, and that role will be played by Scott Mescudi, who is better known in hip-hop circles as Kid Cudi. Mescudi is about to open opposite Aaron Paul in the DreamWorks vidgame adaptation Need For Speed, and he just wrapped the films James White and Two Night Stand. (Deadline)
Recently, executive producer Mark Wahlberg confirmed the movie would hit the big screen.
Mark Wahlberg, returning to “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” 21 years after his first appearance on the program with his former rap group, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, confirmed last night that the highly anticipated “Entourage” movie is officially moving forward. “We’re going to shoot a couple of days this month and come back in April and finish the movie and hopefully it will be ready for the fall,” he added.
