Entourage Fodder

Entourage Cast Hiatus News - Part 1


I'm starting a new feature here on Entourage Fodder to get all of you 'Entourage' fans through the next nine months of reruns and depression. Twice a month, or as often as noteworthy news comes out, I will be posting a cast and show update section that gathers all the tidbits of info and gossip about my favorite show and what everyone is up to during this long and painful hiatus.

Feel free to send me any relevant missing info or to just make suggestions. Your feedback is always welcome!

Let's start with everyone's favorite super agent Ari Gold.
So just what exactly has Jeremy Piven been up to since winning the Emmy last month? The Pivster basically played Ari Gold in the underwhelming DOA "The Kingdom" last month (see review here.) After all his post Emmy partying, Piven hosted Fashion Rocks Concert and reportedly salivated over country star Carrie Underwood at the after party. According to PopCrunch the 42-year old was rebuked by the 24-year old Underwood. The Pivster was also seen hanging out with rapper Ludacris as they're making a film together. The Guy Ritchie helmed "Rocknrolla" is slated to come out in 2008 and also stars Gerard Butler. It seems that this is a busy off-season for Piven as he has two other films in the works as well. He has shown to be a fan of rap music as he has also appeared in Common's latest rap video.

The Pivster has also done lots of partying since his Emmy win last month as has been seen with Ashlee Simpson, Vanessa Marcil and playing the drums for metal band Metal Skool.

And just this week Variety announced that ABC was giving the short-lived late nineties Jeremy Piven show, 'Cupid' another shot. While it's not clear if Piven himself will be involved in the new show in some way, it is clear he won't star in it.

Vincent Chase himself, Adrian Grenier has also had a busy hiatus. He has been spending lots of time with new friend Paris Hilton, yes that Paris. They both claim that they're "just friends" but their body language seems to suggest much more. Sounds like like some of spin they use on 'Entourage' doesn't it?

Adrian is currently enjoying a working holiday in Sydney, Australia where he is shooting scenes for a documentary he's making about the paparazzi and the nature of celebrity which also stars Hilton. According to the Sydney papers, Adrian is pulling a Vinnie Chase and enjoying the local women.

Johnny Drama aka Emmy nominated actor Kevin Dillon is enjoying time with his family but apparently is need of some cash. According to the Defamer website, you can "rent" Johnny Drama for your next event for a measly $15,000 plus expenses. Esterman Entertainment offers "celebrities" for hire and according to their website some members of the 'Entourage' cast are available. Wow, talk about art imitating life. This sounds EXACTLY like something Drama would do!

Dillon has also been seen shopping for cigars, posing for pictures for golf magazines, attending Pamela Anderson's latest wedding and building a replica car kit of of the 1955 Porsche Spyder driven by James Dean.

He has also been cast as the lead in the next National Lampoon parody called '301', which is a send up of the sword and sandal epics like "Gladiator", "Troy" "Braveheart" and "300." It looks like all that fictional "Viking Quest" posing has finally paid off.

So what's the OTHER Kevin been up to? Kevin Connolly aka Eric Murphy (or E) has been romantically linked to Ashlee Simpson and Nicky Hilton (recently) and now has been seen having lunch with (yeah right) everyones favorite cheerleader (and barely 18), Hayden Panettiere. Man, that little guy sure gets around doesn't he?

Connolly has also been cast in "The Office" director Ken Kwapis' ensemble comedy called 'He's Just Not That Into You.' Joining E in this film are such heavyweights as Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Ben Affleck, Justin Long, Drew Barrymore, and my personal favorite, Scarlett Johansson. I swear if he hooks up with Scarlett I will puke.

And finally, Turtle aka Jerry Ferrara. Well, his film 'Brooklyn Rules' didn't get a theatrical release and was released on DVD, ummm, well he also buys his cigars at the same place as Kevin Dillon and he appears in the video game "NBA 2K8." You can play against him in the game. Other than that? Not much. Poor Turtle.

In secondary cast news, crazy director Billy Walsh aka Rhys Coiro has been cast in the upcoming season of "24", let's hope he doesn't play a good guy because he would be a great baddie. I was also surprised to see him briefly in an episode of the horrible new HBO show, "Tell Me You Love Me" as a rebound guy for one of the extremely whiny characters. He has also completed the new Diane Keaton, Jon Heder film 'Mama's Boy.'

Lloyd aka Rex Lee has been on new comedy show "Chelsea Lately" and has just finished a feature film and Perrey Reeves aka Mrs. Ari just finished two feature films as well.

Well that's about it.

Season 5 of 'Entourage' will begin shooting in late January with the season premiere in JUNE. So stay tuned for more 'Entourage' cast news and thanks for reading!

Please leave comments on what you think of this feature. So until next time . . .

More hiatus news...

Kevin Connolly had the pleasure of going skate to skate against former Islander Mike Bossy at the NY Islanders opening game on October 6, 2007.

Kevin Connolly is a huge Islanders fans, and enjoyed participating in a
between period shootout.

Kevin Connolly and Jerry Ferrara got to enjoy their love of all things sports when they first appeared as guests and then co-hosted The Jim Rome show (yes, technically, the show was still airing at the time, but the boys were done taping).

Kevin Connolly and Adrian Grenier were down in Vegas, presenting the Best Group Award at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The next week, the entire Entourage presented Best Supporting Actress at the Emmys (all looking very dapper, I might say).

Also, don't forget that Adrian Grenier, besides hanging with Paris filming his documentary, and touring and exploring the ladies of Australia, has also been touring with his band The Honey Brothers, and appeared in both Toronto and AC last month.

Kevin Connolly and Kevin Dillon were also in AC at the end of August at the Harrah's Splash Pool, in one of their paid appearances.

Lastly, don't forget that Kevin Connolly has been hanging with his old friend Leonardo DiCaprio- first in Vegas,and then in LA (the infamous escape from club Opera caught on tape).

(ok... so I hope this helps fill in the to see someone as dedicated as I am to keeping track of the boys off season!!!)

Hi KC Fan,

Wow, that was an awesome fill in the blanks!
I appreciate your enthusiasm and I look forward to hearing more from you.

I missed some of those things, but between us we'll cover it all!

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Entourage fans unite!!

when was Kevin Connolly with Ashlee Simpson?

hey anyone got any more news lately?

Hi all,

Kim Kardashian, Tobey Maguire, and Adrian Grenier are all starring in ads for American Eagle Outfitters being directed by our one and only Kevin Connolly.

These ads are being short in a 9 part short film format, and will be shown in both the stores and online at the American Eagle Outfitters website.

Before I even read what the shoot was for, I had guessed that they were not back in production, because Kevin and Adrian are still sporting beards.

Per Rex Lee, they should begin filming the 3rd week of April.

Unless they decide to return in Season 5 with facial hair (maybe grown during the filming of "Lost in the Clouds" because I don't think Silo is ever getting made now), my first clue that they are back in production will be clean shaved faces.

In either case, can't wait!

In other news, Adrian has been keeping busy filming his documentary, trying his hand as paparazzi for the day, and playing with his band, The Honey Brothers.

Jeremy Piven was seen most recently in NYC stuck in traffic and chatting with ladies in coffee shops (of course, he also filmed a few movies during this hiatus).

Besides Kevin's gig as director on the above ads, he also filmed "He's Just not that Into You" last fall in Baltimore with Scarlett Johannson.

Kevin Dillon and Kevin Connolly hung out together in February, both at the Grand Opening of the Hawaiian Tropic Zone in Las Vegas, and then at the Super Bowl parties all over Arizona.
Yeah Giants!!!

BTW, there are Entourage spoilers posted at both the TeamSugar and Dotspotter websites.

What kind of nonsense? This is not interesting. There is no such a thing.
