In a year's time, Haley Joel Osment will go from starring in dark thriller "Tusk" to playing a small role in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of HBO's "Entourage," quite a couplet for the actor most known for his child-star days.
Not that Osment is complaining. He got the part via audition, and he won't be making a token cameo in the film, either.
"I'm not playing myself in that. It's sort of an antagonist role," Osment told host Ricky Camilleri in a HuffPost Live interview Friday. "I'm Billy Bob Thornton's son in the movie. We're some outsiders to the 'Entourage' world, and we make some trouble for Ari and have a really cool plot line there. ... He's a bad egg, nasty sort of guy."
The movie is set for a June 12, 2015 release, which marks a continuation of the wildly popular show that aired 96 episodes from 2004 to 2011.
