Turtle and E spill the beans about Entourage

Entourage dinerHave you been jonesing for the entourage from Entourage? Do you need a little Ari Gold to get your blood flowing? Well, new shows aren't coming back until September (thanks to the writers' strike), but HBO is giving fans a chance to enjoy the most recent shows starting tomorrow, July 4th. Every Friday at 10 p.m. (ET) on, HBO will replay season 3: part 2, and season 4.

That's good to know -- especially in these dog days of summer TV -- but if you want to know what's going to happen next, read on. Both Jerry Ferarra and Kevin Connolly, Turtle and E, got a little chatty with OK! magazine's Oliver Coleman.

If you don't want to know how things are going to unfold in season five, don't read after the jump.

Jerry was very enthusiastic about Entourage's new season, so much so that he spilled the beans about some crucial plot points. For starters, Vince's big film project, the biography of Colombian drug czar Medellin -- the one in which he invested his own money -- is not the blockbuster hit the guys were counting on. In fact, as Ferarra said, "The movie...was kind of a bomb at the Cannes Film Festival and it pretty much picks up this year with the aftermath of that."

How bad does it get for Vince and Johnny and Turtle and Eric? Really bad. "The guys are very much in trouble financially, it's not like the old Entourage where they had everything at their finger tips. I mean they do still have their normal connections, but it's a little bit of a struggle." Turtle actually has to go out and get a job, which knowing Turtle, that could be dealing weed. Does Weeds' Nancy Botwin need a distributor?

After OK! got Jerry to blab, the reporter was intrepid and caught up with Kevin Connolly who figured that since the cat was out of the bag, so to speak, he'd give away a few more plot lines from Entourage's upcoming shows. Even as he acknowledged that he was probably going to tick off the folks at HBO, KC revealed, "The film doesn't do well and [Vince's] career is at a low, and in the immortal words of Ari Gold, he's in 'movie jail. So it's all about getting his career back on track."

I love it, movie jail. Could this mean that Vinny will have to deign to do -- dare I say it -- a TV series? Wouldn't that be terrific, Vincent Chase on a CSI-type forensics show, CSI: Seattle? Or maybe he could become the next McHotty on a Grey's Anatomy-like medical drama?

Any thoughts from the peanut gallery on the right show for Vincent Chase?

I am hoping to see more of E and Sloan. I cant wait to see the situations they get into to earn some cash. Also from the style of how the show works, they will probably land a movie at the end of the season to get them back on track.

It's not you. None of that is news. In last season's finale we all watched as Medellin bombed at Cannes and people laughed at the movie and walked out. We saw Harvey chortle in the guys' faces after they'd screwed him over yet again with one of their movies only this time he came out on top by offering to buy the movie for one dollar.

It was obvious that come the next season that Vince's career would be in the toilet. He burned way too many bridges before for him to come out of this unscathed like he would have a few years ago.

You want real scoop? Eric (the only real reason to watch the show) finally gets some clients of his own ... that he keeps. It's too bad he stupidly let go of Anna Farris cause Vince was feeling neglected blah blah. It's about time Eric started thinking about his own career. He's the only smart one in the bunch. He's the one that told them the movie was no good, but no one listened to him. He told them not to give Wally Balls so much control, but no one listened to him. He was the one that went to Harvey and had sold the movie for millions, but then stupid Vince, Ari and Wally Balls jumped on him for not having faith in the shitty movie, when in truth they were the ones blind to the movie. Seeing their own egos more than the train wreck they were making.

If they'd only listened to Eric they wouldn't have been in this predicament. Eric even if he's green, has shown that he's the only one with any real taste in movies and any real business acumen, but he allows his friendship with Vince to dictate his actions constantly.

I hope this season sees him really coming into his own as an agent/manager and that he stops living for Vince and grabs a little piece of the pie for himself.

Dude. It's a TV show, not real life.

The decisions they make on that show are so often so idiotic from the perspective of a regular working man (or woman) that I honestly can't understand how you can get so involved in the story.

I really like the show too but the writing is so all over the place that the movie could've very well been a success too. Or that E would finally get a girl he stays with. You never know the outcome of anything that happens. That's what's really fun about the show but also makes the "storyline" nonexistent. They just hop from bit to bit to bit and especially the "bridges burned" you mention I don't really see. It seems that money can get you anywhere and as long as you put on a smiling face you can charm your way back into the "hearts" of any producer/agent/actor in Hollywood.

Trust me - "Medellin" will be a success at some point. They will come up with a bullshit reason like "DVD sales in Japan are through the roof" and suddenly there will be millions out of nowhere. They always do this, and it annoys me, because nothing on this show has real consequences.

Wait - is it me or was all this already known based on the final ep? It's been so long, I'm having a hard time remembering.

Personally, I'm less excited to hear about what happens to Vince as I do the rest of the gang - especially Drama!

Lastly - for God's sakes HBO - stop letting us hang this long without quality original programming! Oh, and bring back Lucky Louie!
