In Stores, Exclusively from HBO Home Entertainment® on June 30, 2009
3-Disc DVD Set Includes All Twelve Episodes, Plus Bonus Materials Featuring Behind-the-Scenes Interviews and Hilarious Commentaries from Cast and Crew
New York, N.Y., May 20, 2009 – For Vince, Eric, Drama and Turtle, life in Hollywood's fast lane has been an intoxicating ride, but the disastrous screening of the Medellin movie in Cannes at the end of season four has put a damper on their lifestyle. Out in stores on June 30, 2009, just weeks before the premiere of the sixth season on HBO®, Entourage: The Complete Fifth Season finds Vince looking for ways to reclaim his celebrity status with the help of his best friends and agent Ari – all who are having troubles of their own. Entourage: The Complete Fifth Season includes all twelve episodes, plus never-before-seen bonus materials in a 3-disc DVD set.
Winner of Emmy®, Golden Globe® and Peabody Awards, Entourage® is a smart and sharp comedy that has captured the imagination of viewers as well as A-list celebrities who have been eager to lend their personas to the show since its first season. With its light-hearted take on showbiz, the series follows the rise of Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier), one of Hollywood's hot young stars, and the three buddies he's brought along from their hometown of Queens, N.Y. to share the fun – manager Eric (Kevin Connolly), half-brother/actor Drama (Kevin Dillon), and party pal Turtle (Jerry Ferrara). The series also stars Jeremy Piven as Ari, Vince's frenetic agent; Perrey Reeves as the long-suffering Mrs. Ari; Rex Lee as Ari's harried assistant Lloyd; Debi Mazar as Vince's publicist Shauna; Carla Gugino as Ari's nemesis Amanda; Emmanuelle Chriqui as Eric's girlfriend Sloan; and Beverly D'Angelo as Ari's partner Babs.
Guest stars in season five include Bow Wow, Lukas Haas (Alpha Dog) and Giovanni Ribisi (My Name is Earl) as Eric's clients; Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) as Vincent's new love interest; Paul Ben-Victor (The Wire® from HBO) as a studio head; Martin Landau (Ed Wood) as Bob Ryan; and Fran Drescher (Living with Fran) and Kevin Pollak (Shark) as a pretentious Beverly Hills couple. Celebrities appearing as themselves in cameos include singer Tony Bennett, golfer Phil Mickelson, actor Eric Roberts, film critics Richard Roeper and Michael Phillips, studio executive Tom Rothman, actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, network exec Ben Silverman, actor Jeffrey Tambor, rapper T.I., the cast of The View, and actor Mark Wahlberg (who is also an executive producer of the show).
