"Entourage," the show that turned our favorite "PCU" star Jeremy Piven into a household name, comes to a close in 2011, which means it's time to find another gig. As far as PR moves go, starring alongside pop star Miley Cyrus isn't the worst decision.
An announcement (tracked down by Comingsoon.net) adds Piven to "So Undercover," an action-comedy starring Cyrus as a private investigator hired by the FBI to infiltrate a college sorority. Crazy hijinks ensue.
The fast-talking Piven will play Special Agent Armon who we can only assume finds himself in awkward situations inside the sorority house. If it were anyone else, watching a grown man hiding in the closet of a college co-ed may be unbearable, lowest-denominator material, but Piven has talent. The man can turn subpar into...par.
The film will also star Mike O'Malley, known for his work as Kurt's Dad on "Glee" and pressuring teenagers to climb the Aggro Crag on Nickelodeon's "Guts." O'Malley will play Cyrus' Dad.
The film is directed by Tom Vaughn, the man behind the Ashton Kutcher/Cameron Diaz rom-com "What Happens in Vegas" and is co-written by Allan Loeb ("Wall Street 2") and Steven Pearl (2011's "The Switch"). No matter what, "So Undercover" will be better than "Catch the Kid," and sometimes that's what counts.
"So Undercover" aims to sneak into theaters sometime this year.
