Witness With Netflix’s big-budget thriller ‘Clickbait,’ Adrian Grenier makes a comeback.
Adrian Grenier, the star of the HBO series Entourage, has landed the lead role in Netflix’s thriller Clickbait after permanently relocating from Hollywood to his farm in Texas.
Grenier is slated to reprise his role as Nick Brewer in the next limited series, which will premiere on August 25, 2021.
Brewer is a seemingly upright father, husband, and brother who mysteriously vanishes one day and winds up at the center of a lethal viral hoax.
Brewer appears on camera clutching cards that read, “I abuse women,” in a one-minute trailer for the series, which also has a disturbing twist. “I die at 5 million views.”
What Can We Expect From ‘Clickbait’?
A quick look at the Clickbait trailer reveals Grenier’s character’s biography, which begins with him being a loyal family man and gradually transforms into a chaotic and mysterious figure.
While his family searches for him, they uncover a hidden side of the guy they thought they knew, as well as his true “mental state.”
“Who is Nick Brewer?” says the teaser at the conclusion. “Father. Brother. Husband. Liar?”
Brewer’s sister will be played by actress Zoe Kazan, while his wife will be played by Betty Gabriel. Phoenix Raei, Jessie Collins, Liz Alexander, Elizabeth Alexander, Abraham Lim, Steve Mouzakis, Daniel Henshall, and Ian Meadows are among the extended cast members.
The show, produced by Tony Ayres and Christian White, will be released as an eight-episode series, according to an official press release.
Adrian Grenier: What Happened to Him?
Grenier, who rose to fame after portraying Vincent Chase on HBO’s smash series Entourage from 2004 to 2011, hasn’t been seen much in Hollywood recently.
His most recent film appearance was in the Hallmark movie Christmas at Graceland: Home for the Holidays, in which he played Owen Reed.
The actor justified his choice to leave Hollywood behind in the June 2021 issue of Austin Life Magazine, stating that he enjoys living on his farm, which is roughly 45 minutes outside of Austin, Texas.
Grenier went on to say that his principles clashed with the life he was living in Los Angeles.
“He explained his profession, saying, “I’ve been doing environmental work for the last 20 years.” “I reached the pinnacle of that promise in many ways – if you work hard, you become famous, and then you get a lot of money… yet it was lacking at the top.””
However, he does not “regret” the way he used to live his life in the city, describing the sensation as “wonderful.”
