When Russell Wilson was a teenager, the HBO series Entourage was must-see TV for him and his friends. More than a decade later, Wilson will make a brief appearance in the Entourage movie, which comes out in theaters today.
Wilson, some teammates and team employees got an early look at the movie at a screening hosted by Russell Wilson at the VMAC last month. Among those who joined the screening were Entourage director Doug Ellin and stars Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara. Lookout for Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse who also has a brief appearance in the movie.
"I've seen it, so I'm not nervous about that anymore," Wilson said during a post-OTA press conference on Tuesday. "It will be cool. I'm excited about Entourage… A few of us were able to see it here (at VMAC), that was cool. And they (the cast) are all big Seahawks fans, so they love the guys, love the players and love the fans. They're all about the Seahawks, so that's cool."
Wilson's time on the Entourage set, which filmed shortly after Seattle's Super Bowl XLVIII win, was brief, but not without incident. While filming a scene with Connolly, the actor broke his leg catching a pass from Wilson, though the quarterback noted on Instagram that Connolly ran a "perfect post route."
The Seahawks players, coaches and staff were treated to a early screening of the Entourage Movie due to come out June 3rd.
