TV bites: 'Entourage' the movie, 'Got Talent' auditions, 'Delta Blues' casting
So says executive producer Mark Wahlberg. At the premiere for "The Lovely Bones" Thursday night, he told The Hollywood Reporter that he thinks the show -- which is coming off a ratings resurgence last summer -- has two more seasons left in it. "We'll see. There could be more," he said. "But then, a movie."
An HBO rep says an "Entourage" film "is not out of the realm of possibility. Right now, the creators are concentrating on the new season."
- "America's Got Talent" finished its fourth season only 2 1/2 months ago, but it's already gearing up for next season.
The show has already held auditions in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago and has just announced four new sites. The show will see prospective acts in Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta and Orlando starting in January.
Details on the auditions are at this site. It also has guidelines for submitting a video audition.
- The George Clooney-produced TNT pilot "Delta Blues" has added three more actors to its cast, including one of Clooney's former "ER" castmates.
Abraham Benrubi, who played orderly Jerry for much of "ER's" run, has joined the show along with Celia Weston and DJ Qualls, the HR says. The show will star Jason Lee as a Memphis cop who moonlights as an Elvis impersonator.
Benrubi, who's also in the cast of ABC's midseason drama "Happy Town," will play a fellow officer who's one-eighth Chickasaw but chooses to live by "his tribe's wisdom." Weston ("Observe and Report") will play Lee's mom, with whom he lives, and Qualls ("All About Steve," "The New Guy") will play a young officer who looks up to Lee's character.
