'Entourage' director: 'We can get almost any athlete, besides Tiger'

The film "Entourage," based on the popular eponymous HBO series, opens today and features more celebrity cameos "than any film made by Muppets," Time magazine reports.

Indeed, Russell Wilson is in there, as are Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Mike Tyson, Greg Louganis, Baron Davis and Clay Matthews.

"We can get almost any athlete, besides Tiger," director and "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin told Time.

Say what? No further explanation was given. Maybe it's because Tiger has his own entourage:

Or maybe Ellin harbors ill will towards Tiger. Two years ago, in a Tweet, he suggested Woods was vying for the distinction of the most hated guy in sports. "Maybe Tiki Barber. Who else?" he wrote.

@mrdougellin You would put Woods as the most hated guy in sports?
