The highly anticipated film following everyone’s favorite “Entourage” is finally hitting theaters this weekend. But back in 2014 while the buzz was going strong, HipHollywood hit the Los Angeles set and caught up with Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara about what fans can expect and returning to their roles.

“It’s a real treat to come and get the gang back together,” said Grenier who reprises his role as Vincent Chase. “It’s a family reunion with the entourage and the whole crew, many of the same faces for the past eight years , just a lot of fun. ”

In the film Chase (Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Connolly), Turtle (Ferrara) and Johnny (Dillon), are back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Piven) on a risky project that could serve as Vincent’s directorial debut.

“We always manage to one up ourselves and we have to because the audience really demands a fantasy ride,” explained Grenier. “I’d be surprised if this got a rating more than PG-13 although there will be some language and nudity, and Johnny “Drama” full frontal.”

“Let’s just say there’s prosthetics involved,” added Drama of his nude scene. But Drama explains there has been some growth to his character, especially career wise. “He’s got a little piece in Vince’s movie, he feels this is the best piece he’s got in a while, and he feels it could kinda take his career to the next level, and it changes things for him, he’s had a rough time.”

But while Drama is trying to make it big in Hollywood, Turtle is enjoying the millions he made investing in Tequila brand Avion.

“When we ended the series he was a millionaire and when we open on him they are trying to figure out how many millions he has and he won’t tell anybody,” laughed Ferrara. “But what I love about it, the character is a millionaire yet he is still driving Vince to his meetings, the dynamic still hasn’t changed.”

Returning cast from the series also includes Perrey Reeves as Ari Gold’s wife; Emmanuelle Chriqui as Sloan; Rhys Coiro as Billy Walsh; Debi Mazar as Vince’s publicist, Shauna; Rex Lee as Lloyd; Constance Zimmer as Dana Gordon; and Nora Dunn as Dr. Marcus. Rounding out the cast are Alan Dale,who appeared in the series, Billy Bob Thorton and Haley Joel Osmond, rapper Scott Mescudi, and Rhonda Rousey.

Entourage hits theaters June 3rd.


Tracee Ellis Ross Spills The Real Tea On ‘Black-ish’ Wage Demands + Deon Cole, Jenifer Lewis Weigh In



Tracee Ellis Ross is unveiling the truth behind recent reports that she was demanding more money for her time spent on ABC’s Black-ish.

Just last week, The Hollywood Reporter suggested Tracy was in negotiations and asking for more for not only going into her fourth season on the hit show, but because her male co-host, Anthony Anderson, makes significantly more than she does.

The report also claimed that if she didn’t make any headway, she might step away and consider guest starring on other shows.

Over the weekend, Ellis addressed the reports and didn’t exactly deny the claims. In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Ross said that she “was in renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show.”

She continued, “I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”

She did, however, confirm that claims there were threats are false. “I wish I could have been called by the reporter to confirm that,” she wrote.

Tracy’s statement falls right in line with what her co-stars, Deon Cole and Jenifer Lewis, explained to HipHollywood on Sunday night during the 2018 SAG Awards.

When asked about Ross’ desire to earn more money, Lewis said, “Tracee should have more money, you should have more money, every woman should have more money because we’ve been in the background too long. ”

Television’s favorite mom continued, “We’ve got grab her by the pussy in the White House and women are not standing for it anymore. Black-ish is a very important show, we are dealing with all the pressing issues of our time … This is the time to look it in the face and address it and come through the fire. Women are not taking it anymore.”

Deon also shut down rumors that Ross would be taking a back seat, telling us “There’s two sides to every story. Tracee is fine, everybody is fine, and everybody is getting paid. Everybody is eating. It’s all love I promise you.”
