4 stars out of 5 -- "What starts off as something of a guilty pleasure turns into an unmissable treat thanks to a great cast, smart comedy and cameos from Hollywood's A-list."
So that he'll never forget where he's from, actor-on-the-rise Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier) enlists the company and support of his childhood pals from Queens, NY, to join him on his path towards stardom. More than happy to oblige, Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), and Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) eagerly move into Chase's L.A. mansion, where they enjoy endless parties in the company of beautiful women. With Hollywood as their playground, it doesn't take long for the entourage to discover that celebrity life is not all fun and games, especially as they contend with the high-pressure tactics of Vince's hilariously cutthroat agent, Ari (Jeremy Piven), and no-nonsense publicist, Shauna (Debi Mazar). Highlights of this HBO series include special quest appearances by real-life celebrities including Jessica Alba, Jimmy Kimmel, and Mark Wahlberg, who also executive produces the show.
