Entourage Mailbag - #3

And it's time for the third mailbag! This week was a phenomenal success, ringing in with five questions. That's a massive improvement over our previous installments, and I largely look forward to next week where we may host anywhere from seven to ten, or ten to fifteen.

Reader Ash Asks: Do you know if HBO ever proposed an hour long version of the show? Also, do you know what episodes will hold cast commentaries? And who is guest starring this season?

Doug has never mentioned a creative meeting taking place where such a thing was proposed, but trust me, I'm sure someone has brought that up more than once, and it's obviously been denied. As for the commentaries, that information hasn't been released, but I will definitely make sure to e-mail you back and get it up on the blog as soon as I find out.

And who may guest star this season? Tobey Maguire, Kim Kardashian, Bow Wow (reoccurring role), Paris Hilton (now I'm not sure about this, as one set report said she filmed a cameo and said she did not, and was simply visiting Adrian on the set).

Reader Brendan Asks: So my question is do you think the actors an Ellin would be up for a movie, especially this early? And is it really a good idea in general? What would it mean for the series if it went into production?

If there'll ever be an Entourage film, it would have to happen after the show had ended and the mainstream audience had taken a break from the show, ala Sex and the City, which debuted to fantastic box-office for HBO. Which, of course, is prompting all of this talk from Wahlberg. As for Ellin being up for a film? He's mentioned it here or there, but no, nothing confirmed or denied.

For me, I'd hate to see a film made out of the series. Having seen Sex and the City (the film) to form an opinion, they half assed it completely. And I don't even watch the show.

Reader Mark Asks: I've always wondered, how much do each of the stars make?

It's never been publicly stated, as a war would erupt between all of them (I don't care how you like someone, it will always be about money, especially when word is around that you aren't worth half as much as your co-star). My guess? Three-hundred thousand for Adrian, and two-hundred and fifty thousand for Connolly, Dillion and Ferrara. And Piven could be receiving anywhere from four-hundred thousand to half a million.

Reader John Asks: On the back of the season 2 case it says Ludacris was one of the guest appearances. I don't remember him being in the show at all what episode was it?

I actually went back and fast-forwarded through every episode, and surprisingly enough, I couldn't spot his cameo. I'll keep checking, and e-mail you back when I find him.

Reader John Asks: Is it just me or did Vince gain a lot of weight during the entourage hiatus?

I'll be honest. As much as I would love to see Adrian gain weight off screen for a story line on screen (it could happen), I don't see it. There's a few pictures, but only one has him with weight gain. I'm assuming it was taken on a bad day.

You may be right. I made an educated guess.. not entirely accurate, it seems.

No way they only make $25K an episode. If LC from The Hills is making $75K per episode, there is no way the Entourage crew makes that little.
