Jeremy Piven’s niece mocks his “Mr. Selfridge” beard
When Evanston native Jeremy Piven took the role of Harry Selfridge in the PBS series “Mr. Selfridge,” which debuts in America on Sunday, March 31, he knew that viewers who’d come to know and love him as the brash and rash super-agent Ari Gold on HBO’s long-running dramedy “Entourage” might have a tough time accepting him as someone else.
In a new video from funnyordie.com, which was co-founded by movie director, erstwhile Second City mainstage player and Piven’s brother-in-law Adam McKay, Piven and his niece (McKay’s daughter with Jeremy’s sister Shira) Pearl spend some quality time together — until Pearl starts mocking him mercilessly. “You’ll always be Ari,” says the young actress, who several years ago made her online comedy debut with Will Ferrell in funnyordie’s first big hit “The Landlord.” And it gets better from there.
