Actor Kevin Dillon has spoken out in defense of his former Entourage costar Jeremy Piven after he was accused of sexual harassment by four women.

The 52-year-old actor, who played Johnny Drama on the HBO series, told TMZ in a video on Saturday, December 2 where he said, "I think he's getting railroaded here."

Dillon added, 

I've never seen him do anything like that. He's been nothing but a gentleman.

Piven, 52, had previously denied the sexual misconduct allegations made by the actress and the former reality star Ariane Bellamar where Piven told US Weekly in a statement,

I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It didn't happen.

He added,

It takes a great deal of courage for victims ro come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn't happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard.

Other three women also came forward with their stories to claim that Piven had sexually harassed them which was once again denied by the Entourage actor. Piven also offered to take a polygraph test 'to support his innocence.'
