Jeremy Piven is back as Ari Gold in new Entourage featurette

Entourage, Jeremy Piven | Why I'd quit: Lloyd is really the only person who could put up with Ari's homophobic and racial slurs for so long. I couldn't be…

Who wouldn’t love Ari Gold, that screaming, tantrum-throwing, vaguely racist, sexist, classist, fill-in-the-blank-ist agent played by Jeremy Piven in Entourage? And now that he’s a studio head, Gold’s temper is shorter than Mickey Rooney on his knees.

It's bro time! The boys of Entourage are back and on the big screen

The Hollywood Hills loom like gentle giants behind us, cutting a silhouette against a sky the color of a robin’s egg. The sun hangs low like a radioactive grapefruit while a bird sings softly from its perch atop a giant margarita on the roof of a nearby Mexican restaurant. There’s barely any traffic. It’s a beautiful and peaceful late afternoon on the Sunset Strip.

“It’s the middle of the f - - - ing afternoon! Why the f- - - are these f - - -ers dressed for the f - - -ing nightclub?! F - - -!” inquires Doug Ellin, creator of HBO’s Entourage and director of the new movie adaptation of the ­series. At the moment, he’s shooting a film version of one of the show’s classic sequences, the walk-and-talk featuring all five of the core group. Ellin is dissatisfied with the wardrobe for the corralled young female models—all in heels and minidresses—who are being released into the frame at measured intervals, like handfuls of doves in a John Woo movie.

Entourage short film shows how Ari Gold came back to Hollywood

A new short film from Entourage creator Doug Ellin shows just how Gold found his way back after only a week in what, for most people, might be paradise.

Starring Piven, Perrey Reeves, and a longer-haired Piven, the new short film “Ari Gold Is Back”—which doubles as a Cadillac commercial—offers a look at Gold’s journey home.
