Movie Review: Entourage

HBO bros hug it out on the big screen. Review by Brandon Wolfe Sometimes television shows are cut down too soon and are reborn as feature films to fill the hole left in the hearts of the fans and the creators. So great is the sense of premature loss, the feeling that the characters never got to achieve their full potential, that, through sheer tyranny of will, a final act manages to materialize, however improbably. Firefly and Veronica Mars were shows like this. Entourage was not. It was a show that profoundly lacked any true sense of purpose after its second season, yet continued onward for an additional six anyway. There were no untapped reservoirs to explore in any of its single-note characters, no daring storylines it had the slightest interest in tackling. Entourage , unusual for a premium cable series, was a rudderless hangout show, happy to keep the party going for as long as its parent network was willing to foot the bill. Now Entourage is a movie, not because it has a

Entourage Movie Is A Go

After contentious negotiations had some of the actors snipping on the Internet, it looks like the Entourage movie may finally be ready to go. “It’s a go. Love you all,” tweeted the show's creator and screenwriter, Doug Ellin, alongside a photo of the cast. Sources are saying that the holdouts in the dealmaking process – namely Adrian Grenier, Jesse Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly -- are on the verge of signing on. Studio sources say the deals are still not closed but all the camps are confident. Connolly's and Dillon’s deals are in the final stages, according to insiders. The development comes on the heels of Ferrara's Monday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show to promote his new movie, Last Vegas, where the actor said the Entourage movie is "looking real good" and a deal for it "could be closed today." What is interesting is that the actor, who was the most contentious to placate, according to sources, was the one who had his deal

Andrew Dice Clay Cast In Woody Allen Film

Woody Allen has officially announced the cast of his yet-to-be-titled film, and at least one surprise is in store. The players include: Alec Baldwin (who is also in Allen's June 22 release "To Rome with Love"), Cate Blanchett, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Michael Emerson, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and -- if you can believe it -- Andrew Dice Clay . Don't unclog your ears. You heard correctly. Even Dice Clay, who recently tweeted he has some "BIG news comin out later this week!" knows this could be a game changer for him. Known more for his raunchy, headline-grabbing standup act of the '80s and '90s (he was banned for life from MTV for cussing during a live broadcast), this will be Dice Clay's first feature film since the 2001 release of crime comedy " One Night at McCool's ." Dice Clay, 54, has been in a few films over the years as well as TV shows including five episodes in last year's season of HBO's "

HBO Orders "Da Brick" From Spike Lee

HBO is stepping into the the boxing ring with Mike Tyson , Spike Lee and Doug Ellin . The premium cable network has ordered a pilot for Da Brick , a boxing drama project loosely based on former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson’s early life in the ring. The project hails from Tyson, along with Lee, L.A. Riots' John Ridley, Entourage creator Ellin and his producing partner Jim Lefkowitz. Lee is set to direct with Ridley on board to write and serve as showrunner. It will be set in Newark, N.J., which is often dubbed "Brick City." Much as Entourage was inspired by producer Mark Wahlberg's life, Da Brick will reflect aspects of Tyson's upbringing. It marks the latest in a string of Hollywood projects for Tyson, who has turned up in the Hangover franchise as well as Animal Planet's Taking on Tyson. Last season, he added a cameo on Entourage to his resume. For his part, Ellin has a comedy vehicle with Ed Burns set up at HBO and will wrap up Entour

Huge Surprises In Store For Entourage's Final Season

With Ari Gold ( Jeremy Piven ) wife-less and perhaps already back on the singles market, is a reunion with ex-girlfriend and movie exec Dana Gordon just a matter of time? "What happens with us is what I think fans have been hoping would happen at some point," Constance Zimmer , who plays the "female Ari," tells TV Guide Magazine. "It could be a little raunchy!" Zimmer revealed that in the eighth and final season, all of the characters will be exploring territory we haven't witnessed before. "[They] dive very deep into their inner cores of who they are as people, which we haven't been able to see,"  " We've seen a lot about the work and the industry, and this is about what these people are deep down and what they've been missing in their lives." The season, which includes guest stars like Bobby Flay "stirring up a little bit of trouble" for Ari and Dana and Andrew Dice Clay interacting with Drama, wil

Entourage Season 7 Teaser Trailer

Entourage Season 7 Teaser Trailer Ah what a tease that was, I am so looking forward to season 7 to start I can not wait. Not only do we have the teaser trailer but we have information on who will be playing Vince's girlfriend in the upcoming season. But wait we have more news. We also have found out who will be making some guest appearance in this upcoming season. Adult film actress Sasha Grey, who has appeared in several X-rated DVD spoofs of hit TV shows (Seinfeld: A XXX Parody, Not Bewitched, This Ain’t Star Trek and Sasha Grey’s Anatomy) will try the real deal when she stars as herself in a multi-episode arc on the upcoming seventh season of HBO’s Entourage. And this is by no means a small cameo, but a major role as the new long-term girlfriend of Adrian Grenier’s Vince Chase. “I think Sasha’s going to have a very successful transition,” says Entourage creator Doug Ellin, who was impressed by the performer's leading role in Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh’s

"Entourage" Heading To The Big Screen

"Entourage" Heading To The Big Screen Two more seasons of HBO's "Entourage" and then a movie? That seems to be the plan, according to the show's executive producer Mark Wahlberg. Asked about the future of the comedy series, which recently was picked up for a seventh cycle coming off one of its strongest seasons, Wahlberg indicated that he believes there are two more seasons left in the show. "We'll see; there could be more," he said at the premiere of his latest film, "The Lovely Bones." "But then, a movie." HBO seems on board with the idea. "It is not out of the realm of possibility," an HBO spokeswoman said about the prospect of an "Entourage" movie. "Right now, the creators are concentrating on the new season." In following a successful series run with a movie, the Doug Ellin-created "Entourage" would mirror another long-running HBO comedy, "Sex and the City." P

At the TCA Press Tour , HBO President Michael Lombardo announced to a ballroom of critics that HBO's True Blood , Hung and Entourage will Get Renewed for another Season All series will return next June. True Blood - Thanks to a Japanese scientist's invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures "coming out of the coffin." Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides, but in the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the jury is still out. Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), however, knows how it feels to be an outcast. "Cursed" with the ability to listen in on people's thoughts, she's also open-minded about the integration of vampires — particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year-old living up
