Kid Cudi is quickly on the come up in the acting world, recently landing a role as Ari Gold’s (Jeremy Piven) new assistant in the upcoming “Entourage” movie, according to Deadline. The rapper has just been cast as a replacement for Ari’s previous assistant, Lloyd. How To Make It In America was a great series, to me and I wish they kept it on the air. The cancellation saddened Cudi but it wasn’t going to stall him from pursuing his acting career. In addition to appearing in Entourage, Cudi will star in DreamWorks’ Need of Speed next month, as well as other films including James White and Two Night Stand, later this year. He’s acting has improved since he first debuted and the big screen will only open up more doors for the multi-talented individual.

I’ve been waiting for this movie since the Entourage series ended. the way it concluded, with the whole cast leaving on their private jets to new opportunities, left us wanting so much more. Where did they go? How can Vince get any bigger? So many questions, I hope the film has the answers!
