No 'Entourage' cameo for Anthony Weiner

One day after resigning from Congress in disgrace, Anthony Weiner is receiving a lot of offers to take advantage of his newfound infamy. In a Huffington Post letter, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt offered him a raise to come work for his management group. But the one offer everyone is really talking about is a cameo in an upcoming episode of Entourage, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Well, it’s not going to happen. And it was never going to happen. Entourage executive producer Doug Ellin had joked about the possibility on a recent episode of CNBC’s Squawk Box (see video below), but he now says there was never any invitation or conversations about bringing Weiner on to the show, which premieres its last season next month. “I made a joke on CNBC last week,” Ellin tells EW in a statement. “Maybe that is where this was coming from.”
