Wouldn’t it be awesome/ironic if Kevin Dillon’s most memorable silver screen role was as Johnny Drama in a film adaptation of Entourage? I mean, the self-awareness required to convincingly portray the less famous brother of a movie star when you are in fact the less famous brother of a movie star is mind boggling and certainly warrants an entry level University course called Postmodernism: Kevin Dillon is Johnny Drama or something like that. For that reason alone and in spite of the series’ increasingly half-baked plot lines, I for one would love to see an Entourage movie and by extension, Johnny Drama’s gargantuan head on a gargantuan screen.
Perhaps for slightly different reasons, Mark Wahlberg, who completely agrees with me, recently spoke to MTV about the possibility of a big screen adaptation, stating that his desire to make an Entourage film eclipses his own interests as an actor:
“I am more focused on making that movie than my own films. I just think we can make a great movie. I think people always wanted [it] and have complained that the episodes are too short – they’ve always wanted more. I think we’re going to do it. We just have to end strong, and this season is, by far, the best season so far,” he said. “We’re going to have six episodes next year and end with a bang and then in the trailer you see [Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) and his associate, Lloyd] waking up together in Vegas not knowing what happened.”
Even though this might be hilarious and at the very least appease hardcore fans, all signs point to male equivalent of Sex And The City: The Movie and we all know how that ended. Oh yeaahh. Ohh yeah-ahh! *Car doors click shut*.
