ENTOURAGE Season Five Premiere

Here we go folks, the moment many of us loyal and enthusiastic fans have been waiting for about a year now, is finally upon us. Season Five of HBO’s Emmy®award-winning hit comedy Entourage begins tonight, Sunday at 10 pm EST. The season opener, 55th episode of the series is titled “Fantasy Island” – With Medellin being slammed by critics and having been reduced to a direct-to-DVD release, Vince hides out in a Mexican paradise with Turtle. Meanwhile, producer Carl Ertz is willing to give Vince his first movie in six months. Eric, Ari and Drama head out to Mexico to convince him to take the role, and as Vince sits down with Ertz, a phone call by Ari’s old rival changes things drastically. Drama turns prima donna during a Five Towns photo shoot, and kindles his “virtual” romance with Jacqueline, his Cannes girlfriend. 😀

Among the story lines for the fifth season will be the return of Domenick Lombardozzi, the actor who plays Dom. Ellin wrote him in intending for Dom to be a permanent fixture of the entourage. Unfortunately, he didn’t anticipate the audience’s negative reaction to the character, which ultimately led to Lombardozzi’s early exit. Ellin has a personal goal to bring Dom back, but this time with a storyline viewers can empathize with. Giving him terminal cancer is one idea that was considered. It is also rumored that rapper Saigon will return to the series in Season 5. Also Emmanuelle Chriqui will be reprising her role as Sloan for one episode this season.

I just wanna say that I love this girl – Emmanuelle Chriqui!!

Anyways, it has been confirmed by various news outlets that Rapper Bow Wow will play Eric’s newest client: Charlie, a young, up-and-coming comedian trying to get a break. Ellin says he has four more seasons of material in reserve, implying that Entourage will probably run through season eight. T.I. is also expected to make a guest appearance in the fifth season. Among the other celebrities appearing on the show are Jamie-Lynn Sigler who will be playing herself and a potential love interest for one of the boys in a 3-episode-arc. TV Guide reports that appearing as themselves will be Mark Wahlberg, Tony Bennett, Los Angeles Lakers’ stars Andrew Bynum and Trevor Ariza, golfer Phil Mickelson, and actor Eric Roberts. Other guests confirmed include Lukas Haas and Giovanni Ribisi (as screenwriters), Fran Drescher and Kevin Pollak (as a Beverly Hills couple). Martin Landau is also set to reprise his role as Bob Ryan. Leighton Meester will be reprising her role as Justine Chapin for one episode.

Season Five also promises Johnny Drama a hit show, a break-up and a daytime meltdown on “The View”. The scene, taped outside of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, includes The View co-hosts Sherri Shepherd, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg., Wiki
