Entourage premiered Sunday night to waiting fans, but this past year has been anything but pleasant for the show’s star Jeremy Piven.
Following a controversial bout with mercury poisoning, Piven dropped out of his Broadway show Speed the Plow, sparking a media onslaught and legal trouble with the play’s producers.
But in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Piven’s co-star, Rex Lee, says he thinks his pal got a bad wrap.
“It’s almost behind him,” Lee, who plays Ari Gold’s (Piven) assistant Lloyd, told RadarOnline.com. “I think the story was so unusual that people had a strange reaction to it.”
Lee continues, “I’ve known Jeremy for a long time and I’ve witnessed him eating sushi at least twice a day or more. Plus there was that Chinese herbalist who told him to take all those herbs, which turned out to be bad for him.”
