Earlier this month, fans of the hit HBO show Entourage finally got the news they’ve been waiting almost a year to hear — a film version of the show picking up events where we left off will indeed be happening. In fact, filming is expected to begin in 2014 which means producers must begin filling out the rest of the cast to surround everyone’s favorite posse.
One of those names circling the movie is Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton, as The Wrap reports that the model/actress is being eyed for the lead female role in the upcoming film.
The Wrap reports that nothing official has been offered to Upton, but she’s apparently at the top of the list and it seems as though it’s only a matter of time before she’s cast. Since literally popping onto the scene by popping out of SI Swimsuit issues, Upton has been trying to break-in as an actress and has already secured some roles for her resume.
But up until now she’s grabbed nothing but cameo roles playing characters unimportant to the story. To be honest, the only reason she’s been cast in movie has been so people can point at the screen and say hey, there’s Kate Upton but this could be a breakout role for her and be her first true film role to date.
It won’t be hard to keep eyes and ears on this one for a number of reasons, not the least of which seems to be Kate Upton starring as the female lead in the Entourage movie is all but a done deal at this stage in the game.
