It looks like “Entourage’s” Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) can’t catch break in real life either.
According to several reports, an MTV reality star is threatening to sue the team behind the hit HBO show, claiming they stole the nickname “Johnny Bananas” (the name of Drama’s cartoon show) from him without asking.
Former “Real World” roomie Johnny Devenanzio says he’s been using the name Johnny Bananas on various MTV programs and even has the moniker copyrighted.
TMZ reports that Devenanzio (or Bananas, if you're so inclined) hired an attorney who wrote to the shows’ producers, “If you do not cease and desist…you leave us little option but to seek judicial intervention.” FULL POST
Now that the house is burned down thanks to Turtle’s failed attempt to put out a joint, the guys are living in a hotel.
The worst part - or the best, depending on how you slice it - about the guys losing their home is that they have to revert to their 2004 fashions. Turtle is back in a New York Knicks jersey and ball cap, while Drama went back in time and raided Target’s Japanimation Couture department.
Meanwhile, Vince has been busy writing a script with big half-brother Drama in the lead. At a whopping 20 pages and littered with mistakes, Vince thinks he has something. I’ll go ahead and say it: I’m a fan of Vince the movie star, but Vince the budding filmmaker? Not so much.
Could it happen "Entourage" fans?
The show's producer, Mark Wahlberg, said at the Television Critics Association press tour that he is willing to ante up for a film based on the hit HBO series.
"I said if I had to finance it myself, I'd do it," Wahlberg said. FULL POST
Knowing that "Entourage" can have its ups and downs, was the last season premiere everything you were hoping it would be?
CNN's Gavin Godfrey found the premiere to be somewhat underwhelming, doing little more than setting up the season to come, and our tweeps chimed in with their thoughts, up above. (Anyone else agree that watching last night's show kinda made them miss Vince the addict?)
As for critics, the New York Daily News seems to agree with some of you who thought these final eight episodes couldn't have arrived sooner.
The one word on my mind as “Entourage” launched into its eighth and final season last night was uncertainty.
To quote The Notorious B.I.G., “things done changed.”
We kick things off to the rhythms of Toro y Moi's "Still Sound" and a trip to the Murphy Lavin Group. Yep - Eric not only has his own business, but he’s running it with the guy we thought was his career nemesis, Scott Lavin (Scott Caan). Interesting, but not nearly as telling as the phone call Eric receives from Sloan.
Vinny Chase and the guys will return to the tube on Sunday for “Entourage’s” final season.
From countless celebrity cameos to several highly anticipated fictional films, the HBO comedy has racked up a number of memorable moments in its seven years. We're the first to admit that sometimes we wanted to love "Entourage" more than we actually did, but there were still plenty of scenes that reminded us of why we'd gotten hooked in the first place.
To usher in the eighth and final season, we're recounting eight moments that kept us coming back for more:
