With the big-screen version of the much-loved hit HBO series Entourage arriving in UK cinemas this month there couldn’t be a better time to revisit the original escapades of A-list movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his hangers-on, childhood chums Eric (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), less successful older brother Johnny (Kevin Dillon), and, of course, Jeremy Piven’s compellingly monstrous agent Ari Gold.
Happily, all 8 seasons of the Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning, bromantic comedy series are currently available with Sky Box Sets. Whether you’re a longstanding devoted fan, someone tormented by the series’ choppy broadcast history in its heyday, or a newbie, it’s worth a visit to enjoy the friends’ antics, the relentless mockery of Tinsletown excesses, and all those cameos from game-for-a-send-up guests including The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno, Friends alumnus David Schwimmer, Avatar director James Cameron and Matt Damon.
A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
