In a recent episode, Charlie Sheen joined the guys for an in-studio, chat about what he’s been up to and how he’s become hooked on ‘Entourage.’ Charlie opens up to the boys in an honest and candid interview.

After incredible feedback and glowing reviews, Charlie was asked back into the studio by Doug Ellin, to fill in for Kevin Dillon (who is currently on Set filming ‘A Day to Die’ Starring: Bruce Willis, George Lopez, Frank Grillo, Gianni Capaldi, Vernon Davis & more).

As well as looking back on some of the episodes of the successful, Emmy & Golden Globe Award-winning, ‘Entourage’ TV series.
After 8 seasons, 96 episodes, and a feature film, ‘Entourage’ to this day, is still one of the most talked-about (and binge-worthy) TV shows, appealing to a new generation of fans. Loosely based on Mark Wahlberg’s life (tightly based on Doug Ellin’s friendship group and acquaintances), the show highlighted the importance of friendships and real-life situations in modern-day Hollywood.
One of the first shows of its kind, to be known for its ‘fly-on-the-wall / behind-the-scenes’ look into a movie star’s life, its ‘who’s who’ of cameo appearances (featuring elite athletes, famous actors & celebrities) and featuring a fabulous music soundtrack, with some of the hottest tracks (and classic tunes) of its time.
‘Entourage’ premiered on HBO: July 11, 2004, and concluded September 11, 2011. The series was created and largely written by Doug Ellin and chronicled the acting career of Vincent Chase (played by Adrian Grenier), a young A-list movie star (and his childhood friends from Queens, New York City), as they attempted to further their careers in Los Angeles.
