Kevin Dillon apparently just can't shake his Johnny Drama days. For the actor, who played a struggling actor who couldn't land a sitcom on the babes and bros show "Entourage," life seems to imitate art.
After "Entourage" said goodbye to viewers with their season eight series finale, Dillon landed a starring role on the CBS comedy, "How To Be A Gentleman." But the sitcom failed to connect with viewers, despite its decent premiere ratings, and CBS pulled the plug. News of the cancelation comes on the heels of the network's decision to move the show from primetime Thursday to Saturday -- the first sign that the comedy was going nowhere fast.
Dillon, who admits that even though his fame-making character has been put to bed, says he isn't done playing Johnny Drama.
"I was called Matt Dillon’s brother my whole career basically until 'Entourage' broke me free of that and now people call me Johnny Drama instead," Dillon told HuffPost Celebrity after the final curtain fell on "Entourage." "They still don’t know that I’m Kevin, but I don’t care."
From the looks of his most recent career stumble, Johnny Drama -- for better or for worse -- is here to stay.
