Johnny Drama wants G-Mac, Rory for Entourage movie

Posted at 3:42 PM by Mike Walker | Categories: Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy

Entourage_rory_gmac_entourage_300Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy aren’t brothers, but the friendship between the 24-year-old superstar McIlroy and the grinding 33-year-old Graeme McDowell is similar to the relationship between movie star Vincent Chase character and his older, less successful actor brother Johnny Drama on HBO’s popular Entourage show, which ended its seven-year run in 2011.

So it makes sense that Kevin Dillon, the actor who plays Johnny Drama, wants both McIlroy and McDowell to appear in the Entourage movie. The Irish Mirror has the details:

“Graeme was on the set after he won the US Open. I guess he’s a fan of the show. I wasn’t working that day so I didn’t get to meet him but he and Doug [Ellin, Entourage writer and director] have become good friends. Everyone loves Graeme.”

New York-born Kevin, who also starred in Oliver Stone’s Platoon and The Doors said there’s a chance the golf aces could appear in the Entourage movie.

He added: “Possibly. A script can change, Graeme isn’t in it right now but the cameos come in so late.”
