He skyrocketed to fame as the ball-busting agent, Ari Gold, in the hit HBO series Entourage, but Jeremy Piven is adamant that his most recent role as Harry Selfridge in ITV’s Mr. Selfridge, is his most exciting to date.

FAULT: What can viewers expect from the new season [of ‘Mr Selfridge’]?

Jeremy: The backdrop is the First World War and some have to go off to war and we get to see this ripple effect throughout. I think the writers and everyone did a beautiful job of showing that this season. There are new characters and they all intertwine beautifully and seamlessly. I feel like with the amount of characters that we have, I wish we had more episodes because it’s an embarrassment of riches in terms of what they bring. Any one of them at this point could be our main story and it would be fascinating. I think the only problem we have on our show is trying to figure out a way to cut it.

Who are your acting idols?

The first person to come to mind would be Javier Bardem. He never lets you down. He’s a complete and utter inspiration. I like Tom Hardy’s balls. I mean not literally, I’ve never seen Tom Hardy’s balls, just for the record. We worked together in Black Hawk Down and he’s a gamer, he’s always up for it, he’s fearless and he’s really fun to watch as well.

Mark Rylance – I was lucky enough to see him on stage in Twelfth Night and I hope to see him in Richard III in New York. He’s completely improvisational, totally alive on stage doing Shakespeare.

Interview by Rebecca Unger

Would you ever want to tackle Shakespeare again yourself? What Shakespeare character could you see yourself playing?

I’m just stupid enough to want to play Iago, especially after seeing Rory Kinnear do such a brilliant job. But it’s not about comparing and contrasting. He was just so beautiful in it and obviously so was Adrian and that would be a brilliant role.

I played Mark Antony before. I’d like to give it a shot again before I’m too old. Maybe I already am, I don’t know.


You may be on the cover of Men’s Fitness. I think that means you’re not too old to play Mark Antony again.

You never know. I already did the shoot. They may cover me with a wet blanket and put me on the last page, we don’t know.

Is there anyone you’re absolutely dying to work with on a future project?

Getting back to Shakespeare, I’d love to mix it up with Idris Elba. I’d love to work with Idris really in anything.


The question you’ve been asked a million times: what’s happening with the Entourage movie?

It’s happening. I believe we’ll start shooting in the middle of February and it will probably be a summer movie.
