'Entourage' Picks a Pair
Jami Gertz, Autumn Reeser land recurring parts
The HBO series, which will begin its sixth season in the summer, has cast Jami Gertz and Autumn Reeser in recurring roles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Both will be connected to the Miller/Gold Agency that Ari (Jeremy Piven) runs.
Gertz ("Still Standing") will play Marlo Klein, the wife of Andrew Klein (Gary Cole), an agent and former mentor of Ari's that Ari brought onboard the firm toward the end of last season. It will be her first TV work since she starred in the Lifetime movie "Lost Holiday" in 2007.
Reeser, meanwhile, will play a junior agent at Miller/Gold -- and will no doubt bring the same single-minded perkiness to the character that she brought to Taylor Townsend on "The O.C."
Reeser also starred in The CW's "Valentine" this season and is currently working on "Smokin' Aces: Blowback," a prequel to the 2006 movie that starred Piven (he's not involved in the new project).
