Adrian Grenier dishes about last season of 'Entourage'
It's the final season for audience members to follow the Hollywood adventures of Vincent Chase and his friends and Adrian Grenier, the actor who has portrayed the character for seven seasons, says the eighth and final season is "going to be great."
The actor recently dished about the series' end to Parade magazine and reveals "Vince is trying to prove himself during the first couple episodes. He had a little bit of a slip in life, but he's ready to get back on track and do better than ever."
He adds, "It's really about trying to manage all of the fear in everyone else that he's too vulnerable. He's trying to prove that he's back in charge and he's going to be back on top."
The series also stars Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillion, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven, who has won several awards for his role as Vince's manager Ari Gold.
"I feel like I've lost four castmates, but I've gained four brothers," Grenier said. "It's never really goodbye. For me, it's on to the next big thing, and that's been the philosophy of the show. You gotta role with it."
The 35-year-old actor talked about filming the finale and called the moment "touching." He adds, "Everyone was so sweet. It actually felt like the last day of school. It was hard to keep people focused. It was funny because the grown men on set were acting like children. Poor David Nutter [director] was trying to get everyone's attention and get people to finish a scene, but when the end of school is near, it's hard to really get people to do anything."
The actor says the series "ends with a smirk and a little bit of a wink and the knowing look that it's not over necessarily. It's only just a new beginning. I'm looking forward to what's next."
The eighth season of "Entourage" premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. on HBO.
