Is Anthony Weiner headed to TV?

Not for now.

The former New York Congressman, who resigned Thursday following his sexting scandal, was reportedly offered a guest spot on Entourage, in which he would play himself, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But executive producer Doug Ellin says he was only joking when he seemingly extended an invitation to the disgraced politician on CNBC's Squawk Box last week.

"I made a joke on CNBC last week," Ellin tells Entertainment Weekly in a statement. "Maybe that is where this was coming from."
