And somehow, this seems fitting.
In the first deal between Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's company Gary Sanchez Productions and Paramount Vantage, Jeremy Piven will play a used-car liquidator in a "high-concept comedy" titled The Goods: The Don Ready Story.
According to Reuters, "Piven will play a character who's hired to save a struggling car dealership during a Fourth of July weekend sale."
Good call, folks.
After seeing him play a sleazeball in Smokin' Aces, and considering how convincing he is on "Entourage," it seems right that Piven stick to these desperate or depraved characters. Hopefully with his skills and the influence of the Ferrell-McKay duo The Don Ready Story will be a super success.
