Boys back in town
becoming a director. However, his behind- the- camera debut has already chewed up its projected $ 100 million budget, and is still nowhere near finished.
The incomparably inflammable Ari Gold ( Jeremy Piven) is going up in flames over the blowout. He’s no longer Vince’s agent, by the way. These days he’s running the studio footing the bill for this potential debacle.
Vinnie’s manager and best friend Eric ( Kevin Connolly) is, as always, trying to keep the peace and get the movie finished in spite of Ari’s everintensifying panic attacks.
Vinnie’s older brother Johnny Drama ( Kevin Dillon) is also in his usual state of personal meltdown. Word has trickled down that his prominent role in his sibling’s movie could be hitting the cutting room floor. Should that happen, Drama’s already burnt acting career will be totally toast.
And as for the Chase team mascot Turtle ( Jerry Ferrara), well, he’s now a hell of a lot richer and thinner than you may remember.
There is no real need to relay any further plotting for Entourage, as storytelling is not this movie’s strong suit.
With so many supporting cast regulars to cram into the mix ( including fan fave Lloyd, the best gay friend Ari will ever have) and a truckload of B- list celebrity cameos to cover, there’s just no wiggle room for shock narrative departures or fresh character development.
All that matters to true Entourage tragics is that the 24/ 7 party’n’premiere lifestyle of Vincent Chase and his posse is continuing both unabated and unrepentant.
