This is such a throwback, and probably not a role he would even think about when considering past roles, but I loved Jeremy Piven in the movie Serendipity. His character’s name was Dean Kansky and he was John Cusack’s best friend in the movie. So, in truth, John Cusack is one of my favorite actors. I love him and have made it my mission to own all of his movies. However, Piven was a hidden gem in that movie, I loved his personality, he played the role well.
Dean: You know the Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: “Did he have passion?”
Of course that movie came out before Piven was sort of blackballed in Hollywood. He is one of many actors who has been “charged” with being gross towards women, I really don’t know much more than that and I don’t want to. I never got into the show Entourage for the very reason of feeling like it was just a gross show. So, whatever.
This post is not about Serendipity though, it’s about Emmy winning Jeremy Piven, SNL Star Darrell Hammond, Fox TV’s “Let’s Be Real” John Di Domenico, Amazon’s “Wok of Shame” star Jimmy Shin, British comedian Christine Peake will bring the laughs for one night only in Las Vegas at Notoriety Live.
Performing on Saturday, June 5 at 9 p.m. will be Emmy-winning actor and comedian Jeremy Piven who became everyone’s favorite bad boy in the smash-hit TV show Entourage, for which he won numerous Emmys.

Piven has been performing stand-up shows across the country and starring in countless movies and will be the headliner, alongside Saturday Night Live legend Darrell Hammond.
