Lenny Kravitz, Diddy, Mark Wahlberg to guest on 'Entourage'; plus creator Doug Ellin on plans to make a movie and end the series

Entourage-Kravitz-CombsImage Credit: Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images; Bob Charlotte/PR PLenny Kravitz, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and Mark Wahlberg will appear in an upcoming episode of the HBO comedy Entourage, EW.com has learned. Kravitz will play himself—with Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) serving as his agent. In the episode, “Ari’s trying to trade favors,” says series creator Doug Ellin. “He’s got to get Lenny to do a movie so someone else will do something for him.” Meanwhile, Diddy and Entourage exec producer Mark Wahlberg pop up as themselves on the golf course. “Turtle [Jerry Ferrara] is starting a business, and he’s trying to get them to invest in it,” says Ellin. “He’s going to a lot of people about this investment.” The episode will air in August as part of Entourage’s seventh season, which debuts June 27. And what about the news that Walhberg has his eye on making an Entourage movie and ending the series next year? HBO programming president Michael Lombardo and Ellin confirm to EW.com that the eighth season will likely be the show’s last. (“I think we’ve got 20 more seasons in us,” notes Ellin, “but we’re not going to do that.”) Ellin adds that he’s been too busy finishing up this season to think about a movie, but “Mark’s going to kill me if I don’t write it. Everybody wants it, and we’ve got to make a plan for it.” Any clues as to what adventures might await the boys on the big screen? “I promise you that Turtle won’t get shot.”

    I’m pretty sure the last episode I watched was the Matt Damon one…this show just isn’t good anymore. I used to love it, but now I kind of find it to be annoying.

      Yea, you have no clue what good television is.. Consider yourself a tool from this day forward… Great article.. Cant wait… 1stAD

    Focus on making the show good again before you start thinking about a movie. The last two seasons were not good and not funny. I used to be such a huge fan of Entourage, but the humor the last two years has been tired and boring. I’ll give this new season two episodes to impress me. If not, I’m done.

      What he said…

  • Jamison

    u guys are redic, the last 2 seasons have been the strongest yet, maybe not as funny as the others but much better in overall quality then before, and its not like the stories suck, this is a show that has never really had a horrible season, season 4 was the weak pt
    the movie would be awesome get jeremy piven even more acclaim for ari gold!!!!

    • bob

      Jamison i am going to have to agree with you on what you said the forth was the weakest by far the fifth got better towards the end but the sixth was definitely entourage at the top of its game. Just because Ellin wrote pretty much all the episodes.

  • Mikael

    Yeah an entourage movie would be great. Say what you want about the shoe but it’s addicting. Once its over your going to want more…same as every other show that ends. I dont know what they could make an entourage movie about personally but you better believe there would be millions lined up to see it.

  • J

    This show ended a long time ago.

  • Bee

    alwaysss loved the show. can’t wait for the new season and the movie. sad that it’s ending next year :(

  • James Gandolfini

    This show is going the SATC route… a once clever show about friendship that satirized a life of excess has now deteriorated into straight-forward douchebagery with no charm whatsoever…. so glad they’re going make a movie (I’m sure it won’t totally suck ass)

  • JJ

    Does “ending the series next year” mean season 7 is the last season or season 8 will be the last season?

    • Spongey

      “HBO programming president Michael Lombardo and Ellin confirm to EW.com that the eighth season will likely be the show’s last”.

    Your immensely unoriginal and boring show barely had 20 episodes in it Mr. Ellin. For a cable comedy you would have thought they would have cast this show a little better. The cast is just unfunny. Kevin Dillon has a moment or two here and there but the rest of this cast just sucks. Especially the OVERRATED Jeremy Piven who hasn’t been interesting since “PCU”.

    Just cancel this garbage and scrap the movie idea.

    • DeeCee

      PCU…great movie.

  • Chris

    The new show is “How to Make it in America”. Way better than Entourage, based in NYC, HBO series.

  • Brett

    I’ve liked the series in the past, but I don’t see a feature film having any appeal for a mass audience. “Entourage” certainly has never had the following that “Sex & the City” had (and look how poorly that show’s sequel movie fared this summer).

  • Justin

    Let me guess the story arcs will be: Vince is in demand, Vince isnt in demand, Vince is in demand again. This show stopped being relevant years ago.

  • Jessica

    I think they should give Ari his own show after Entourage is over.

  • Tim

    The dynamic between all of the characters is so boring and predictable now. I don’t think they could make those relationships interesting for two hours, save Mrs. Ari and Ari (and LLoyd). If they have to make a movie, they should focus on that dynamic and skip the rest of the characters. Perrey Reeves and Jeremy Piven are the only ones that have any chemistry between their characters and the only laughs I get are the episodes when she and he interact.

  • Summer

    A show just for Ari would be awesome!
