Kevin Conolly on Regis and Kelly!

This was my second time watching Regis and Kelly. Regis doesn’t scare me as much as he used to, and Kelly may appear nice, but there’s a wild side that has yet to be shown.

Today, Kevin Connolly found his way onto the show to talk about Entourage. His visit was much shorter than Piven, but Connolly still managed to smile and sell the show with ease.

It’s widely known that Entourage has been shooting in New York, with pictures floating about of the gang running to catch up with a taxi, attending a barbecue and Drama shamelessly promoting his show. Connolly spoke of his the rigorous work schedule involved with shooting in New York.

“Usually we’re done shooting by now, but since the strike happened, it threw all of us off balance and we literally finished shooting Thursday. It’s really crazy.”

The sheer cool factor that oozes from Entourage is evident with every minute of the show, but Connolly was surprised by the fan turnout. “Everyone from my hometown, literally hundreds, showed up to support the show and what we were doing. All my relatives, too.”

The premiere is tonight in the Big Apple. Connolly didn’t shy away from talking a specific “list” you have to be on to attend the premiere. “Even some of my relatives are left off!” Kevin laughingly said.

As we all know, Michael Phelps will have a small cameo on the show. Connolly touched upon the craziness that ensued when they approached Phelps to film a cameo. "He was shooting Good Morning America and we had to call someone so that he could come shoot the cameo quickly. He literally had secret service surrounding him. You'd think he was the President."

By this time, Connolly’s stint was coming to end, and he duplicated what Piven said yesterday of where we see the group at the start of the episode. “The film bombed, and it’s up to me to get Vince back to Hollywood.”

Since we’re so close to the premiere, I won’t describe the clip. You'll thank me later. Trust me.
