Former Real World cast member John Devenanzio, aka “Johnny Bananas” apparently, has failed in his attempted lawsuit against the show Entourage, claiming that the show’s “Johnny’s Bananas” animated character – a dumb cartoon monkey voiced by Kevin Dillon’s Johnny Drama – was stolen from his own existence.
The sexy details, Via THR:
In the lawsuit, Devenanzio charged HBO, parent Time Warner and Entourage creator Doug Ellin with featuring an “unwarranted, unauthorized and unfavorable mention of plaintiff’s name and personality and allusions to plaintiff’s physical and mental character.”
…But New York Superior Court Judge Lucy Billings has ruled that Devenanzio filed his claims too late.
Hahaha, perfect. Looks like THE MOVIE’S BACK ON! (YEEEAHHH! OH YEAAAHHHH!!!)
This closes the case of Real World v Entourage, a veritable “Alien vs. Predator” of societal greatness. Still Pending: My lawsuit against Doug Ellin for me defending Entourage way after it got stupid, then being repaid with the worst series finale in tv history.
