A Closer Look at the Life of a Movie Star...

Entourage, the HBO Series that gives viewers an insider's look at the daily drama in the life of an up-and-coming movie star, Vincent Chase, is a funny, action-packed show that keeps it's watchers entertained.

Vincent, played by Adrian Grenier, is a charming, free-spirited young actor originally from Queens. The show's basis revolves around his successes (and failures) in the movie industry, and also on the lives of his "entourage": Eric (Kevin Connolly) is Vincent's best friend from childhood, and plays Vinnie's manager in the show; Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) plays his older brother, who is a struggling middle-aged actor who had success with his TV series "Viking Quest"; Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) is Vince's good friend from Queens, who now lives with him & is working on breaking into the music production industry; and Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), who plays Vince's intensely aggressive agent in Hollywood.

What makes me like this show is how the cast works together. They really seem like true friends, and no matter what kind of disaster happens on the show (and disaster seems to strike quite often), they always manage to stick together through it all. Jeremy Piven's performance as Ari Gold is amazing. He is so full of energy and spunk, not to mention humor, that he has won 2 Emmy Awards for his role on the show.

If anyone has ever wondered what life is like for struggling actors in Hollywood, I highly recommend Entourage. I watch it every week and expect the series to keep on rolling for quite a while.

Sometimes you need a really good, really shallow television show to call a guilty pleasure. Entourage is mine. The characters are unforgivably self-centered with an unapologetic attitude the writers would have you believe all of us here in Los Angeles adapt. Don't look at me to be the the shining example of decency, though, because I'm late for a meeting with my agent!

Is it just me or does watching Ari Gold make you want to become an agent?
review by . December 10, 2008
I'm a huge fan of this show, it really is like the Sex and the City for guys. Instead of four girlfriends in NYC, it's four guy friends in LA. The story line is great, Adrian is HOT, and the two things I love most about this series:    1) Ari. He is just the most ridiculously hilarious out of this world agent ever. And it's great. He keeps the show going!    2) The music. I LOVE that they don't use too much mainstream pop music, but include artists such as …
