Entourage shoveling Cole into Season 6

Updated! : “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin tells Moviehole that he’s still “breaking stories for him next year but I plan on having a lot of Jeremy and Gary together” adding that he’s “very excited” about working with the “amazing” Cole.

The always superb Gary Cole (“American Gothic”, “The West Wing”, “Midnight Caller” – man, that’s going back a few years that one!) is returning to series television, nabbing a permanent spot on HBO’s “Entourage”.

Cole, seen recently as the villain in “The Pineapple Express”, plays Hollywood agent Andrew Klein, Ari’s (Jeremy Piven) oldest Hollywood friend from their early days in the business, says THR.

Cole is introducing the character this season in a three-episode arc slated to air in November.

The show’s sixth season will hit screens next Summer.
