Versatile Actor Jeremy Piven on Building Character

You might remember him for his portrayal of angry agent, Ari Gold, but you'd be surprised by what else Jeremy Piven has in his arsenal.
If you look at the size of the Ari Gold character in the pilot episode, you wouldn’t believe it. The guy had just one scene. I was told that he was a fringe character, that he would have one, maybe two scenes per episode, and that’s it. It would have been very easy for me to go, “But wait a minute!” and take a stand. No, no, no. You can rise to the occasion with your work. That’s how you progress.
