[artist id="502642"]Eminem[/artist] will help close out the seventh season of HBO’s “Entourage” with a guest spot on the cable hit’s finale. According to Entertainment Weekly, the rapper will appear as himself on the show, celebrating the success of his real-life album, Recovery, with a blow-out bash. Show creator Doug Ellin told EW that some drama will go down between Em and Adrian Grenier’s character. “He has a little conflict — a little beef — with Vince,” said Ellin.
RapRadar.com also posted a photo of Em shooting the scene, which features the hip-hop star in the foreground as a gigantic First Aid sign — which is part of the artwork for Recovery — looms above a crowd of actors and crew members.
Even though Recovery dropped just last week, Ellin is confident that the album will be a smash. Ellin told EW that the Eminem scene is set “at a platinum record party for his album, which by the time this airs [on September 12] will be platinum, I’m sure.”
Em’s “Entourage” guest spot also probably means that everything is cool between the hip-hop star and the show’s executive producer Mark Wahlberg, with whom Mathers shared a famously tense appearance on MTV’s “TRL” in 1999.
Christina Aguilera will also appear on the “Entourage” finale as a client of Ari Gold. “She’s doing Ari a favor and performing at a party for him,” Ellin said. The season-seven send-off is shaping up to be a star-packed episode as John Cleese, Minka Kelly, and professional athletes like Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees and more are set to appear.
