As always, the boys were hilarious and charming, and they generally feel like a true Entourage. In regards to the show coming to an end, Kevin Connolly summed up the Entourage experience.
“I think it would be impossible to duplicate this experience, it’s just been so unique. You could go on and do ten shows, however many and win Academy Awards, but it will never be as special and unique as this –lightening in the bottle.”
You can see the interview below:
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:
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:
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.
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.
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:
It was his life-long dream growing up, but now Jeremy Piven might not be holding that much love for Broadway these days.
After Piven dropped out of “Speed-the-Plow” last month- due to high levels of mercury, which doctors deemed too dangerous to ignore- Broadway producers have filed a grievance towards the actor.
The Entourage star’s publicist Samantha Mast has issued a statement about the grievance:
“The claims made by the producers of Speed-the-Plow are absurd and outrageous… He withdrew from the play due to medical necessity on the advice of his doctors, after he was hospitalized and warned by his physicians that enforced rest was necessary in order to avoid serious medical problems, including a heart attack.”
Piven was experiencing extreme fatigue, spacial problems, difficulty remembering his lines and maintaining his balance, and an alarmingly low resting heart rate. Mast said that the forced withdrawal was an enormous personal disappointment for the 43-year-old three-time Emmy winner since it was always his dream to perform on Broadway.
Cupid must have shot an arrow into ABC’s heart, because the network is giving the show another chance.
The cult hit, which originally aired in 1998 and starred Jeremy Piven, only made it to episode 15.
But in the hands of Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, execs are hoping the revamped show will be a hit.
Thomas plans to stick to the original plot line about a man who believes himself to be Cupid, and the therapist who tries to convince him that he’s gone a little crazy.
However, Thomas will pen a completely new pilot. The leads will also be re-cast, of course, as Piven is busy earning Emmys as Ari Gold on Entourage. But Thomas plans to bring on a slew of guest stars to the project, so don’t rule out a cameo.
And as for the question of whether “Cupid” is insane or heaven-sent? “If we make it into syndication, this time I promise that I’ll answer the question,” Thomas said.
