CNN personality gets face-to-face with Ari Gold as his show draws to an end
Piers Morgan might not be with CNN for much longer, but he might just have a second career on the big screen.
Morgan, whose CNN series ends this month, has booked a role on the upcoming “Entourage” movie, the cable news personality revealed via Twitter on Thursday.
“To those wondering about my next career move.. here's what I'm doing next two days,” Morgan wrote on his Twitter account.
A subsequent post included a photo of a cast list, which revealed that Morgan will play a character named … wait for it … Piers Morgan.
“Who needs TV?” Morgan wrote.
Morgan later posted a photo of himself with “Entourage” star Jeremy Piven and creator Doug Ellin, and later a photo with Piven.
“It's a wrap – one of the best days of my working life,” Morgan wrote.
But while Morgan might have spent the day reveling in the experience of hobnobbing with big-shot actors, Morgan devoted at least part of Wednesday reflecting, perhaps a touch bitterly, on the imminent demise of his CNN show.
“Had my highest CNN ratings in 8 months last night. #justsaying,” Morgan wrote.
