It looks we haven't seen the last of Vincent Chase and the boys.
Adrian Grenier has to console 'Entourage' fans
After Warner Bros. green-lit a film version of popular HBO series "Entourage," the project seemed to hit a few snags. But on Monday night, creator Doug Ellin and one of the show's former stars, Jerry Ferrara, confirmed that the movie really is going to happen.
The oft-talked about "Entourage" movie was starting to feel more like myth than an actual possibility, but Warner Bros. has given the concept a green light.
As Deadline reports, "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin wrote the script for the big screen version of the HBO series, and will also direct the film.
Straight from Ari Gold’s mouth: “Entourage” is coming to the big screen.
Jeremy Piven announced the upcoming movie while visiting “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, New York Magazine's Vulture reports.
After sharing the good news, Piven, famous for playing foul-mouthed talent agent Ari Gold on the HBO show, apologized for all the bleeps caused by his character’s "fudge," and "flarfegnugen."
Since HBO's "Entourage" ended, actor Adrian Grenier says he has "changed from being Vinny Chase the celebrity to Adrian the therapist," offering a shoulder for fans over the demise of the series.
"I have to console so many people on the street," he told CNN. "I mean grown men practically in tears now wondering what they're going to do now on Sunday nights. So it's a lot of huggin' it out."
The actor has plenty of time on his hands now for projects like the site SHFT.com, which he co-founded. The website encourages people to live sustainable lives, offering a holistic view of sustainability, with everything from architecture to travel.
Believe it or not, actor Jerry Ferrara doesn’t have much in common with his television alter ego, “Entourage’s” Turtle.
Having gone from a Boston Market employee in 2004 to one of HBO's most popular shows, Ferrara made a name for himself as the loyal, overweight, pot-smoking, freeloading best friend of the show’s protagonist, Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier). Fast forward to 2011 and the actor's just wrapped portraying a more fit and serious Turtle, not to mention he's walking away from "Entourage" having written a few episodes of the show.
But sans potential of a movie, what if we have seen the last of Turtle? If so, how does the guy who spent a good part of his adulthood playing the character prove he can grow beyond the show that gave him his first real break?
Earlier this week I found myself bugged by two very pressing questions. The first was whether Don Julio Jones is the right name for both of my fantasy football teams, and the other, more pertinent question had to do with "Entourage's" series finale.
When "Entourage" says goodbye for good, where will the finale rank among the likes of greats like “The Sopranos,” “The Wire” and “Sex and the City”?
Fortunately, I had the pleasure of speaking with a guy who might know a thing or two about answering that question: Jerry Ferrara, aka Turtle.
