i’ve been getting sucked into “Entourage” since catching the opening two episodes earlier this summer. Thanks to the miracle of VOD, I am now all caught up with this season and on a recent trip to LA I caught a chunk of last season (Thanks Delta!). Basically, I am curious to see if they are able to sell “Medellin” in Cannes where the film is debuting… After the jump, fresh from HBO today, summaries of upcoming episodes leading up to the boys’ Cannes trip…
Episode #50: “Gary’s Desk”
Debut date: SUNDAY, AUG. 5 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT)
Eric (Kevin Connolly) gets an office on a shoddy stretch of Hollywood Blvd. As a gift for E, Vince (Adrian Grenier), Drama (Kevin Dillon) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) scope out an antique desk with a rich Hollywood history, but learn it’s already been sold to an actor with whom they have their own colorful past. Ari (Jeremy Piven) preps for his annual meeting with an r’n’b super-diva, but first must squash some twin-sibling office drama. Written by Ally Musika; directed by Julian Farino.
Episode #51: “The Young and the Stoned”
Eric gets in a fender bender with Anna Faris and believes they shared “a little moment.” Turtle picks up a few provisions (and a few girls) at the market for an impromptu afternoon party, but gets momentarily sidetracked on the way home. Mrs. Ari (Perrey Reeves) is asked to reprise her role on a “Y&TR” anniversary special, to Ari’s chagrin. Written by Dusty Kay; directed by Mark Mylod.
Episode #52: “Snow Job”
Debut date: SUNDAY, AUG. 19 (10:00-10:30 p.m.)
Ari receives Billy’s (Rhys Coiro) script for Vince’s next project, but Billy’s interpretation is vastly different from the adaptation he was commissioned to write. While Ari scrambles to keep the studio interested in the project, Eric is busy managing domestic issues between his new client and her needy boyfriend. Written by Doug Ellin & Ally Musika; directed by Ken Whittingham.
Episode #53: “No Cannes Do”
Debut date: SUNDAY, AUG. 26 (10:00-10:30 p.m.)
A code orange at LAX threatens the guys’ chances of getting to Cannes in time for the “Medellin” premiere. Ari attempts to assuage the feelings of Mrs. Ari and Lloyd (Rex Lee), who both make it clear in their own way that they want to accompany him on the trip. Billy finds room in his script for Eric’s new client, but will Eric’s ambivalence ruin his relationship with her, and with Vince? Written by Doug Ellin; directed by Dan Attias.
