EntourageCelebrity gossip/news site, TMZ, is reporting that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will appear in the upcoming “Entourage” movie. The outlet apparently got word of this straight from the athlete’s management:

“We got word from Gronkowski’s theatrical manager Henry Penzi … the NE Patriots’ stud is going to be hugging it out with Jeremy Piven, AdrianGrenier and the rest of the boys from ‘Entourage’ in their upcoming feature film.”

I get the feeling this will be no more than a glorified cameo, though, so I wouldn’t expect this to be Gronk’s big Hollywood crossover or anything. It’s no surprise that one of the film’s producers, Mark Wahlberg, would want to secure a cameo from one of New England’s biggest sports stars since he wears his Boston heritage so proudly on his sleeve.

This has been a busy week for the “Entourage” production. This news comes on the heels of reports that supermodel Kate Upton could be up for a role in the film.
