If you’re planning to catch The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard this month, be afraid. Be very afraid.
Not because the Will Ferrell-Adam McKay production is a horror flick. To the contray, it’s an outrageous comedy about a used-car liquidator named Don Ready who’s hired by a failing auto dealership to turn their Independence Day sale into a profitable venture.
But its leading man seems to have taken his high-pressure, hard-sell character to heart.
Interviewed tonight at 10 p.m. ET on Movie Geeks United!, Jeremy Piven says he’ll be taking his promotion for the flick – which opens Friday and co-stars James Brolin and Ving Rhames – directly to the people.
When host Jamey DuVall asks, “Are you going to go out this weekend and sneak into some theaters?” Jeremy snaps back with:
“I’m not going to sneak. I’m going to make it very obvious.
“I’ll go in there, say hello to people, do a Q&A. I’ll stalk them.
“I’ll be in Chicago first, and then New York. Then maybe go city to city,” the three-time Emmy winner adds. “It could be really fun.”
Jeremy also chats about his day job, as the star of Entourage, revealing that things will be going from bad to worse for his assistant, Lloyd (played by Rex Lee), on the hit HBO series:
“I’ll go to the [Entourage] creators at times and go, ‘Come on, man. We’re in danger of alienating the entire audience. I’m being so cruel to this poor guy.”
And speaking of Entourage, Jeremy also dishes about bringing the show to the silver screen, à la Sex and the City.
“An Entourage movie would be amazing.
“Because one of the big quarrels everyone has is, Why isn’t this show longer?” he says.
“So I think people want a couple of hours and a chance for the thing to really open up.”
