Watch: Jessica Alba And Luke Wilson Hit The Road In Trailer For 'Dear Eleanor'

28 April 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kevin Connolly may be familiar as Ryan Malloy in the 1990s sitcom "Unhappily Ever After," but he's best known for his role as Eric Murphy on HBO's "Entourage." He garnered a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of "E," a guy who will go to great lengths to keep best friend Vince on the right track. It was unlikely that "E" would become as a director. Yet Connolly has made his second feature film "Dear Eleanor," starring Isabelle Fuhrman, Liana Liberato, Jessica Alba, Luke Wilson and Patrick Schwarzenegger.

Garry Shandling: The Fake-Host With the Most

24 March 2016 4:56 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

R.I.P. to the one of the all-time comedy greats, Garry Shandling, who died suddenly of a heart attack today. Shandling created one of the most unforgettable monsters in TV history on The Larry Sanders Show, the legendary Nineties cult sitcom where he played a late-night talk-show host with an all-devouring ego and not a glimmer of compassion. Talk about ahead of its time: It pioneered the whole whiplash-fast "room full of bitter adults abusing each other at the same time" bile of sitcoms like Veep or Arrested Development. »

Why Jeremy Piven Turned Down 'The Office'

26 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Can you imagine The Piv as Michael Scott on "The Office"?

It almost happened. And the reason it didn't happen is actually a credit to Jeremy Piven, and a rare sign of humility in Hollywood.

Piven talked to Cigar Aficionado for the April issue and they covered a lot of issues, including his own cigar company, his British period drama Mr. Selfridge, his "Entourage" alter ego Ari Gold, and the U.S. adaptation of "The Office."

Here's why he turned down the NBC role that ultimately went to Steve Carell:

"They came to me initially for the American version of 'The Office.' I was such a huge Ricky Gervais fan from the British version. I thought, 'How could anyone possibly play that character better than he did?' It was this perfect blend of nerdy cockiness in the way he navigated the space. So I turned it down. »

This period drama TV show revolves around starry-eyed American retail magnate Harry Selfridge (Jeremy Piven). He sees diamond-like possibilities on the rough end of Oxford Street in 1908 London.
