Another season cometh and went for HBO’s Entourage, and what ironically made the season finale was one of the celebrity cameo appearances by Oscar winner Matt Damon- who played himself trying to “Jason-Bourne” Vince into donating money to his Children’s Charity.
It’s pretty clear that Damon’s performance was truly a gut-buster. I personally was on the couch cracking up seeing him repeatedly stick-arm Vince into joining the foundation, donating money, and then donating more money.
Though the real performance came in the post-episode credits where we see Damon really lose a gasket. Check it out.
This Week On Entourage:
On the day before he leaves to Italy, Vince tries to get the boys to come with him, but only manages to get Drama. Turtle still trying to get over Jamie, and tries to forget about her with the college dorm girl. And Eric says he’s going to try and get Sloan back -but the guys think it’ll be pretty hard.
Meanwhile, Ari and his wife meet with the therapist to discuss why his wife should lend him $12 million to help buy Terrance’s agency. But after Ari admits why he truly wants to buy it and pours his heart out, she agrees to spot him the money.
Despite Lloyd’s suggestion, Drama decides not to read for any acting gigs, saying he’s taking a break from it for a while. While shopping with Vince, the two run into Matt Damon who tries to pressure Vince into donating a cheque for his children’s charity.
This Week On Entourage:
On the way to a night club, Turtle has to bail to spend time with Jamie on her last night in the city. Vince and Drama then find Eric making out with a girl- who Drama recognizes as a previous one-night-stand four months ago.
Later on, Drama warns Eric that the girl tends to “get around” and he should be careful. But Eric realizes that he didn’t wear protection.
At the Miller-Gold Agency, Ari is having a tough time without Lloyd- firing every assistant that HR sends over to him. In his office, he finds Terrance McQuewick who wants Ari to buy-out his company for $100 million. Afraid of a hidden agenda, Ari tries to interrogate Terrance’s wife, to see if there’s any other information- to which he finds that Terrance is heading for a divorce.
This Week On Entourage:
Having relationship woes with jealous girlfriends, Eric and Turtle discuss with Vince how to solve it.
The boys meet up with a stressed out Drama who is afraid he’ll get cut from Five Towns. Although when he runs into a Melrose producer who offers him a part in the new show, Drama strongly considers dropping out of his current show.
He discusses the possibility with the boys about somehow getting out of his contract, and the boys advise him to call his agent.
Lloyd, feeling nervous after leaving Ari, tries to convince Drama to stay with him as his client at the new agency. Drama says if he gets out of the contract, then he’ll consider signing with Lloyd.
Meanwhile, Turtle gives Eric a lift to Ashley’s house, to settle some relationship trust issues. She’s suspicious about the identity of “Rupert Pupkin” (the name she saw on his cell phone), which happened to be Vince’s alias name. Ashley suggests that she have access to all his e-mails- this has Eric a bit sketched out.
This Week On Entourage:
Eric cuts a business call to take a phone call from Sloan- who wants to make sure that he’s not mad at her for the fight between him and Ashley.
He then leaves to meet Vince at the mansion for the meeting with the “security guy.” Ari calls him on the way, and reassures Eric that this guy is the best there is.
Meanwhile at the Miller-Gold agency, Ari finds Andrew in his office, passed out in pajamas. Angry and confused, Ari finds out that Marlo kicked him out of the house, and froze his credit cards.
But Andrew promises Ari that he is signing Aaron Sorkin today. Barbra Miller wants him fired if he doesn’t follow-through.
At the mansion, Vince and the boys meet the “security guy”- who suggests extreme measures to turn the house into Fort Knox. This leaves the boys wondering if all this is necessary.
This Week On Entourage:
After the mansion is broken into the night before, the cops can’t find any sign of an intruder. However the maid finds that all of the guys’ underwear have been stolen. Ari recommends to the guys that they call his “security guy.” Lloyd calls Drama to tell him that he won’t be needed on set today for Five Towns. So the boys advise him to go an apologize to Dan Coakley.
At his first day of work, Eric runs into a bit of trouble with a fellow colleague Scott who’s determined to sign Bob Saget- but he won’t return his calls. When Eric mentions at the meeting that he’s good friends of Saget and can give him a call, Scott tells Eric to stay out of his business. Drama tries to apologize to Coakley, but loses his temper once again on the phone when he talks about Jamie-Lynn. When Bob Saget agrees only to speak to Eric, and demands to have sex in Murray’s office in exchange to sign as a member, Scott decides to make Eric the one to forward the insane idea to Murray.
It appears that Entourage is really reaching new heights with it’s cameos of athletes.
First Tom Brady- beyond awesome, then a brief Steve Nash- cool stuff, but now viewers should prep themselves to see one of the biggest global superstars on the planet, the King himself, LeBron James!
Not sure exactly which episode it’ll be, but Jeremy Piven -a huge fan of the NBA and James himself- took a little video of the guy on the set:
This Week On Entourage:
Turtle watches on in pain as Drama and Jamie-Lynn kiss on-screen for the Five Towns episode. Eric joins the gang and tells them about his slip-up of calling Ashley “Sloan” the night before.
Drama advises him to continue lying, and Turtle heads off to his first day as a UCLA college student.
Meanwhile, Ari finally makes amends with his wife, but experiences a huge problem at work when Marlo storms through the agency yelling and screaming like a demon to find Andrew’s “whore.”
Eric drops by Ashley’s place and apologizes again for the mistake. When she becomes skeptical, he promises to never lie to her again.
Well you may not have noticed but we are in love with Jeremy Piven. Call it a bro-mance (or in Jenn’s case a romance) but Piven is a god to us. Here is the interview in its entirety where Jeremy talks about his newest movie The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, in theatres August 14th. Jordan has seen the movie and confirms it’s one of the funniest films he has seen in a while.
What do a stainless steel ping pong table, personal limousine driver, PlayStation 3 console, personal poolside cabana, private yacht excursion cruise, jet skis, and dinner for four all have in common?
They’re some of the many bells n’ whistles included the “Entourage Package” at the W Hotel in South Beach, Miami.
You read correctly. According to promomagazine.com, now for those yearning to get as close as possible to the HBO hit comedy series, the three-level bungalow inspired by the boys’ extravagant Hollywood lifestyle is as good as it gets- ringing up at $5,000 per night with a two-night minimum.
“It’s a true branded experience in terms of the experiential elements and has a very strong brand personality,” Chris Spadaccini, HBO’s vice president of advertising and promotions, said.
The promotion, launched in anticipation of season six, is being marketed at the hotels and on parent Starwood Hotels Web site. Throughout the promotion, which ends Sept. 27, all guests will also have access to a complimentary “Entourage” channel that includes episodes from seasons four and five, in addition to behind the scenes clips from season six.
This Week On Entourage:
While eating dinner with Ashley, Eric gets a phone call from Sloan who tells him she’s co-chairing a charity golf event that he’s participating in with the boys. But Eric keeps that news on the down-low from Ashley.
At the tournament, the boys meet an exhausted Ari who was forced to sleep on the couch for the first time in 15 years, because of the lie he told his wife about Andrew. He also has Lloyd caddying for his group the entire day to build his self-esteem, and plays with the annoying Jeffrey Tambor who cheats to impress his children.
Vince and Drama are paired up with Mark Wahlberg and Tom Brady, while Sloan tells Eric that mega-manager Murray Berenson requested to pair up with him.
Drama tries to spice up the day and puts a wager of a grand per hole, but ends up being the laughing stock due to his poor golf game and temper.
Good news: Entourage was renewed for a seventh season.
Bad news: We’ll only be able to see it summer 2010.
As I said a while ago, it was announced – according to Variety - that the show reeled in 3.4 million viewers for the season premiere- which was their best in two years. And although those are not the craziest numbers compared to big-time shows, I guess that’s a huge deal considering the fact that not many people across America actually even have the HBO channel.
Beats me why the network makes us wait for such long periods of time for a half hour TV series with 12 episodes per season. But at last we know that the boys will be back in town next year!
This Week On Entourage: As Eric reviews the late-night box office results for Gatsby, Ari calls to inform that Vince’s upcoming film is being pushed back three months.
This leaves a stress-free 12 weeks of vacation for the boys.
But not so with Ari, as his wife gets a call from Marlo Klein who’s looking for her husband Andrew. Ari covers it all up temporarily saying he’s probably with a client, but gets to the bottom of things at work, warning Klein that the affair with junior agent Lizzie better be over.
Andrew assures Ari it’s done, however when David Schwimmer shows up for a meeting and begins flirting with Lizzie, Andrew reveals his jealously.
Meanwhile, Vince is trying to figure out what he should do while on hiatus. Disappointed that all his buddies are too busy with their own lives, he decides to occupy himself with a waitress named Nicki for the afternoon…and Facebook too.
Drama, who’s being scripted a love interest for Five Towns, takes part in a model make-out casting session to see if any chemistry sparks- but nothing. He demands that the show get some real talent, but there’s not enough time for another casting session.
Yes more Jeremy Piven content (do you get the feeling we love this guy?) We met up with Jeremy on Thursday to talk about his newest movie, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, in theatres August 14th. We asked some questions about Entourage and he gave us the low down into the rest of Entourage Season 6. Please accept our apologies for the shabby editing as we wanted this up ASAP. Also check back for the full interview coming soon.
Before the event with Jeremy Piven, our editor here at andPOP told me to “hug it out” with the “Entourage” star. Piven didn’t get a hug from me, but it’s okay because he got more than just a hug from someone else (see photo).
On Thursday (June 30), Piven made an appearance at the Rogers Centre in Toronto to become an honourary team member of the Argonauts.
With a wide grin, Piven told reporters he’s a huge sports fan, saying this is “the closest I’ll ever come” to being a football player. A jersey with the actor’s name was presented to him by Quarterback Kerry Joseph, Defensive Tackle Adriano “The Kissing Bandit” Belli and Vice Chair Michael “Pinball” Clemons.
Today was a monumental day in the careers of everyone at andPOP – the day we met Jeremy Piven. I don’t think as a group collectively we all have been so excited to produce an interview. The good news is Jeremy’s a really friendly dude who was very receptive to your friends at andPOP. His movie The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard is hilarious and he even gave us an exclusive into the rest of Season 6 of Entourage. Check back tomorrow night to see the footage. Also check out the restricted trailer for The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard thanks to Funny or Die.
This Week On Entourage: Eric, nervous about the pilot screening for Charlie’s new sit-com, is pissed off when Ashley- who just spent the night at his house -admits that Charlie sucks in the pilot.
Meanwhile, the boys are all celebrating Turtle’s 30th birthday, but Turtle is experiencing the birthday blues. After a phone call from his mother who chews him out after looking like an idiot in People’s Magazine- for the sneaker shot at the premiere with Jamie-Lynn -Turtle decides it’s about time that he make something of himself.
Vince decides to cheer him up by taking him and the boys Ferrari racing on a racetrack, and then gives him a $240,000 Ferrari as a birthday gift.
We are so pumped to interview Jeremy Piven next week. We love him in Entourage and no doubt we will love him in his newest movie, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard. Check out the trailer for his film below:
This Week On Entourage: Today’s the big day, it’s the Gatsby premiere, and Vince and boys are all trying to figure out who they’re taking as dates. Turtle obviously brings Jamie, E decides to ask Sloan to accompany him “as friends,” Vince decides upon some one night stand chick, and Drama ends up asking a sexy retail clerk.
At the agency, Ari has his wife get to know Andrew’s wife Mario- as they’re all going to the premiere together -but then finds out that Andrew might be having an affair with the new hot-shot agent Lizzy (The O.C’s Autumn Reeser). Not good news for Gold, who tells Andrew to end the fling right away. Also, Loyd’s struggling with his diet to lose weight during the 100 days of hell.
Meanwhile, E moves into the new apartment and already has new neighbor Ashley (Alexis Dziena) really interested in him.
On the red carpet, Turtle is introduced by Jamie to the press as her boyfriend, everyone congratulates Vince, and E awkwardly runs into Ashley who received an extra ticket from her work.
Mrs. Ari and Mrs. Andrew are becoming rowdy best friends- which causes Ari to remind Andrew to get his shit together and end the affair with Lizzy.
“The numbers are in…and they’re big!”- Ari Gold anyone?
Vinnie Chase and the boys are not only hotter than ever on TV, but also in reality. According to THR, last week’s Entourage season 6 premiere drew a whopping 3.4 million viewers- more than double last season’s opener, and it’s largest audience in a few years too.
