follows the hilarious exploits of ex boy band member Steve Williams, who
is trying in vain to remake his image as a “serious actor”.
It is the flip side of “Entourage” and covers the painfully

it, even if it means wearing a dog suit in a cheesy indie film, or crashing
a disabled actors audition. This politically incorrect romp will make
you bust a gut.
