Kid Cudi to Star in ‘Entourage’ Movie as Ari Gold’s Assistant
By Annie Reuter
Kid Cudi is adding more big screen credits to his resume. It has just been announced that the rapper will play the role of Ari Gold’s assistant in the film adaptation of HBO series Entourage.
That’s not the only upcoming role for Mr. Rager. He will star opposite Aaron Paul in the DreamWorks video game adaptation of Need For Speed, due out in March. Additionally, he just finished shooting two more films, James White and Two Night Stand.
Kid Cudi is no doubt keeping busy as he’ll be performing at Coachella this year alongside OutKast, Muse, Arcade Fire, Lorde and Skrillex. Festivalgoers should be aware that he does not condone stage crashers.
In 2009, he was kicked off an opening slot on Lady Gaga‘s Monster Ball Tour after punching fan Michael Sharpe in the face at a Vancouver show for throwing a wallet onstage. He later apologized to Sharpe, and would later bring him onstage during a performance at the 2010 Sasquatch Music Festival.
The next year he pursued a stage-crashing fan offstage to physically accost him for the invasion. And in 2013, he shoved a fan off the stage as he attempted to jump onstage twice.
