Brilliant show! Fun, exciting and yet so true
Entourage is a TV series which is vaguely based on Mark Wahlberg's life in Hollywood. Vincent Chase played by the very charming Adrian Grenier is a young and in demand film star. He's represented by Ari Gold, a ruthless agent determined to be the most powerful person in Hollywood. Jeremy Piven plays the role of Ari Gold brilliantly, and admits to have taken many attributes for this character from a real Hollywood agent named Ari Emanuel.
Vincents other entourage include his brother Johnny Chase, known as "Drama" who used to be a relatively successful actor back in the day, however his career is now on the down side. Johnny Chase is played by Matt Dillon's brother Kevin Dillon, and his job is now to cook for Vincent and the rest of the crew. Jerry Ferrara plays the role of Turtle, Vincent's driver while Kevin Connolly who plays Eric Murphy, also known as E, is Vincent's manager.
The series is made to seem like a reality show most of the times, and although the characters and their situations are of course amplified for entertaining purposes, the lifestyle these four young men live is a true reflection of young Hollywood these days.
Like most fans of this show I can't wait for the movie to be released in June this year.
