Entourage, one of Astrochicks favorite shows is pulling the plug next season. What? No more Vinnie and E? Not to worry, according to Mark Wahlberg the series producer, says he’s taking “Entourage the Movie” to the big screen. I’m sure Jeremy Piven will love that. What will happen? Will Vince marry Sasha Grey or go to rehab with Lindsay Lohan?
“The plan right now is we’ll finish up this season, we’ll do a shorter order for next season, we’ve talked about six,” said Michael Lombardo, HBO programming president. “[Creator Doug Ellin] is appropriately reserving — he wants to write a film, but wants to do it when the story will make sense. He’s pitched other shows to us. I will expect that within the next couple years [he'll have another show on HBO]. But Entourage next summer will definitely be the final season.”
What’s really interesting, is Creator Doug Ellin revealed that the Vinnie and Sasha Grey storyline was inspired by Charlie Sheen. Seriously? Remember the porn star that Sheen fell in love with in the 90′s? Her name is Ginger Lynn and Sheen’s love of porn stars and hookers was never the same. I hope that Ellin doesn’t try to make Vinnie go psycho like Charlie Sheen, I don’t think the female fans would dig that.
What will Adrian Grenier do in his Entourage afterlife? He recently made his directorial debut in the documentary Teenage Paparazzo. He’s currently down under in Melbourne, Australia promoting the film. Astrologically, Adrian born under the zodiac sign of Cancer, has a big year ahead of him. Will he take a break from acting? Possibly. I expect Grenier to continue to pursue his behind the scenes career and maybe even direct an episode of Entourage next season. Stay tuned!
Last week, actor Jeremy Piven bowed out of a Broadway production of David Mamet’s “Speed-the-Plow,” citing exhaustion due to an elevated mercury count.
How did his mercury count get so high? From eating sushi and taking Chinese herbs, according to his doctor, Carlon Colker. Never mind the herbs for now. How much sushi would you have to eat in order to endanger your health?
Media contacts from the FDA and EPA haven’t returned calls, but I did speak with several people at those organizations off the record. Could this happen? Yes, they said, but it would not be due to binge sushi eating. Rather, mercury builds up in a person’s system over time. Through, say, the eating of sushi twice a day, as Piven apparently was in the habit of doing. (Hollywood!)
Get better babe. We can’t wait to see the new season of Entourage.
