Rush Limbaugh Notices Ari Emanuel; He Must Need An Agent

rushlimbaugh.jpgArch conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh tried to take his anti-Obama campaign to a new level when he figured out on the air this morning (on KFI 640) that new White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was in fact the brother to Endeavor agent Ari Emanuel.

“The Clintons had the Thomason’s,” Limbaugh bombasted about former President Bill Clinton’s links to Harry and Linda Bloodworth Thomason. “Now the Obamas have access to anyone they want.”

Apart from discussing how “nice, really great guy” Ari was (does he know what he’s saying?) and how Ari invited, nay begged Rush to come out to Hollywood to go to the Oscars, Limbaugh dropped the subject quickly and moved on.

Luckily, Limbaugh wasn’t aware that Ari is the model for Ari Gold on “Entourage,” which no doubt would have led to a Limbaugh diatribe against the show’s producers (Mark Wahlberg, among others) for not inviting him to be a guest star.

How do they say it? That’s Hollywood.

Mos Def Now Wanted In Vegas — And It’s Not For Gambling

One of FBLA’s favorite actors stands accused in Las Vegas of attacking a paparazzi last August, according to blackvoices.com.mosdef2.jpg

Mos Def, who gave stellar turns in films like “The Italian Job” with Mark Wahlberg, “Something the Lord Made” opposite Alan Rickman and “16 Blocks” with Bruce Willis, went ballistic on a fashion photogapher at Vegas’s annual Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry Convention. It was unclear what provoked him.

Allegedly, Mos snatched photographer Volker Corell’s camera from around his neck before smashing it to the ground and taking off with the busted equipment. And apparently the photographer was left with a cut on his left hand following the incident.

A warrant was issued Mos Def’s arrest in Las Vegas.

He faces faces charges of felony robbery and malicious destruction of private property.

DHD: Endeavor Signs ‘Vince’

vince-assri.jpgDeadline Hollywood Daily reports that Endeavor just signed Adrien Grenier, aka “Vince” from Entourage — the show executive produced by Mark Wahlberg that features an agent, Ari Gold, more than loosely based on Wahlberg’s own agent Ari Emanuel.

With life imitating art so much, does this mean that soon Grenier’s career will be over too?

Rosenberg Wins SAG’s Top Seat
THR reports that Alan Rosenberg has won a second two-year term as SAG president, topping Seymour Cassel. Rosenberg landed 11,631 of the votes to Cassel’s 10,921. In addition to election results, Carl Diorio’s story also gives the election backstory on the campaign battle, one that saw the two opponents tangling “less over policy or priorities than their personal styles and backgrounds.”
