Adrian Pasdar and Michael Imperioli Snag Lead Roles in ENTOURAGE Creator’s New HBO Pilot 40

     September 22, 2011


With Entourage all wrapped up after eight seasons (and a mostly disappointing last round of episodes), creator Doug Ellin is already onto his next project, a new comedy pilot called 40. The series follows four four lifelong friends who help each other navigate life at 40. Basically it sounds like Entourage without all the Hollywood rigamarole, but the cast does sounds pretty interesting. Michael Rappaport and Ed Burns were previously cast as two of the four friends in the project, and now The Live Feed has word that Adrian Pasdar (Heroes) and Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) will play the other two buddies. Pasdar will pull double duty on TV since he is also part of the ABC Family series The Lying Game, whereas Imperioli spent some time with HBO on the aforementioned mobster drama. The cast at least has me interested in the project, and if anything, Ellin knows how to craft a show with an ensemble that really feel like genuine friends on screen.
