ADRIAN GRENIER’S “ENTOURAGE” CHARACTER WAS INSPIRED BY VINCE VAUGHN
Much has been written and discussed about the last season of Entourage and the Hollywood Reporter had a particularly fascinating reminiscence from the creator/writer Doug Ellin. He said “The (Adrian Grenier) character is named Vince because of Vince Vaughn. It sounds crazy now, but nine years ago when I first started writing the script, I was like “Do you think we could get Vince Vaughn? It was done completely as an homage to the guy.” Come to think of it –“Entourage” bears a striking resemblance to one of our all time favorite movies “Swingers,” starring John Favreau and Vince Vaughn. (A group of cool, aspiring young guys navigating Hollywood) And now that “Entourage” is going off the air – how about a TV series based on Swingers?
