Two for the Money: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeremy Piven, who stars on HBO's hit series "Entourage," has joined Al Pacino, Matthew McConaughey and Rene Russo in the Morgan Creek production Two for the Money.
The drama is set to start shooting Sept. 8 in Vancouver with D.J. Caruso at the helm. The Dan Gilroy-penned project finds McConaughey as a star college football player who is at the top of his sport until he blows out his knee during a game, forcing him to choose a new profession. He winds up getting into the sports gambling business only to be recruited by Pacino's character, who runs one of the best sports-booking operations in the country.
Piven will star as the original main man in Pacino's gambling operation who is replaced by McConaughey's character. Russo plays the wife of Pacino's character.
