Perhaps needing a break from the fast-talking, potty-mouthed, morally askew Hollywood wheeler-dealer he plays on Entourage, Jeremy Piven is taking to the Broadway stage to play one of the fast-talking, potty-mouthed, morally askew Hollywood wheeler-dealers of David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow:
Jeremy Piven makes his [Broadway] debut this fall in a revival of David Mamet's biz satire "Speed-the-Plow." [...]
Piven was last seen on the boards in New York in a 2004 Off Broadway production of Neil LaBute's "Fat Pig." No other casting for "Plow" has yet been confirmed.
Mamet fans will recall the original Lincoln Center production of the three-person play earned much notoriety for its casting of Madonna in the role of Karen, a coverage-penning assistant with integrity and a nice ass. It's a plum role for any young starlet looking to prove her chops on the Broadway boards, and while we're certain the producers have their own casting ideas, we'd like to offer up Lindsay Lohan, who's already proven her ease around Piven in those flesh-colored bikini shots from his Polaroid Beach House birthday party.
