    This pilot is building a solid cast – could be good things coming. I can’t say enough about Entourage – that show… the best. Anytime I see anyone from the Entourage team joining a pilot or current series (Connolly, Chriqui, Zimmer), I want to see what they are up to. Having that series on your resume – even for just a guest appearance – that’s a pretty good thing.
