Kevin Dillon
has signed on to star in CBS' "How to Be a Gentleman" after playing Johnny "Drama" Chase for eight seasons on HBO's hit show "Entourage." Dillon will star opposite David Hornsby in the comedy pilot.

Hornsby wrote the project, based on the book of the same name, which is a buddy comedy about Allan (Hornsby) and his old high school classmate Bert (Dillon). Uptight Allan will learn to live his life with the help of the genial and optimistic Bert, who doesn't quite understand personal boundaries.

Dillon has earned three Emmy nominations for his portrayal of Johnny Drama.

"Friends"
executive producer Adam Chase is serving as executive producer and co-showrunner alongside "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's" Hornsby. Also executive producing the pilot is Ted Schachter.
