Grenier to feature on 90210

Entourage actor Adrian Grenier will appear in an episode of teen drama 90210 later this year. The actor will feature on the show with his band The Honey Brothers as they play at an 18th birthday party.

HBO has officially announced that the end of Entourage is near.

The series, which follows actor Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his crew around LA, will come to a finish mid-way through next year.

A shortened final season run has been ordered by HBO which could be as little as six episodes which will take place after the current seventh season.

“Next summer will definitely be the final season,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed over the weekend.

There were hints towards the possibility of series creator Doug Ellin writing an Entourage film but due to Ellin’s commitment to other projects he is pitching to the network this may be sidelined.

Entourage has confirmed more guest appearances for the upcoming season.

Musicians Lenny Kravitz and P Diddy will both have guest spots on the drama series in its seventh season.

Kravitz will play himself in an episode where he is a client of Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven).

Series creator Doug Ellin says: “He’s got to get Lenny to do a movie so someone else will do something for him.”

Diddy will appear alongside exec producer Mark Wahlberg in one of the actor’s token golf course scenes.

“Turtle [Jerry Ferrara] is starting a business, and he’s trying to get them to invest in it,” Ellin said.

“He’s going to a lot of people about this investment.”

The episode will screen in August.

The brains behind hit series Entourage are working on a new female-oriented series.

Executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson are closing in on a deal with HBO for the show which would focus on a group of female friends looking for love in LA.

Sources are claiming the outline for the show is less Hollywood oriented than Entourage, therefore we are warned that a ‘girls Entourage’ label shouldn’t be placed on the project just yet.

On board are newcomer writers Leah Rachel and Emily Montague.

Meanwhile, the seventh season of Entourage premieres later this year.

Adult film actress Sacha Grey has been announced as a guest star on the upcoming season of Entourage.

Grey is set to play a major role in the seventh season of the HBO dramedy as a love interest for Adrian Grenier’s Vincent Chase.

22-year-old Grey recently crossed over to mainstream acting with a major role in Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 film The Girlfriend Experience.

Entourage creator Doug Ellin explains: “I think Sasha’s going to have a very successful transition,” he said. “Sasha’s the biggest porn star in the world right now, and when Soderbergh casts her as the lead of his movie, I take notice. I wouldn’t have done this storyline if Sasha passed. Luckily she was okay with doing it.”

Grey will appear as herself in the fifth episode with Vince and stay in the role for the rest of the season.

“I think they’re going to have a very interesting relationship,” Ellin adds.
