The successful HBO television show series “Entourage” features a group of men out for a good time, women and male bonding sessions. But what actually goes on behind the set when the lights are turned down and the scenes are done and over with? Well, there are interviews, for one thing. And during one of their interviews, the guys from the show talked about what any other man wants to talk about: cars.
Kevin Dillon, who portrays Johnny Drama, revealed that his first car was an Audi Fox. When it got wrecked, he replaced it with a ’67 Firebird, which was a convertible. There’s a story behind that: On Friday the 13th, someone jumped out in front of him and was sent smashing through the side of the convertible. Needless to say, Friday the 13th still scares this guy until now. He said, “But they were both great cars, and I now have a ’69 Firebird, which is the best car I’ve ever had because I’ve had it for the longest period of time and it runs like a champ. It just kicks over every time. It’s amazing. I’ve had so many other cars come and go, and that Firebird is the best.” Admittedly, Dillon’s dream car is a ’67 Corvette which he hopes to own someday.
A ’65 Mustang was the first car ever owned by Jeremy Piven (a.k.a. Ari Gold). Too bad that his friend had it taken away from the city due to too many parking tickets. He was in London studying in college at that time and had gone home to find his beloved Mustang gone and sold. When asked what his dream car is, Piven responded that he’s into vintage cars like vintage Jaguars. “They’re kind of amazing,” He said.
1988 Acura Legend, gray leather interior. This was the first car that Rhys Coiro (Billy Walsh) owned. He made it pretty clear how much he loved that car, saying that one can’t go wrong with a Honda. At the moment, he doesn’t own a car. He does have a Kawasaki KLR 650, though.
Rex Lee, or Lloyd in the show, had a secondhand Buick Skylark for his first car. Next car he’d be driving? A Toyota Prius, which seems to be a favorite among the celebrities. Not one to fancy sports car, Lee says he wants some nice luxury car, like a Lexus.
The man behind the hit show, Mark Wahlberg, was also asked about his first owned car and his dream car. He said that the first car he ever bought was a Volkswagen Bug but the “first legal car” he had was a ’75 Cutlass Supreme. The story behind that car? “I sold it. I smashed it and sold it.” When asked about his dream car, he replied that he would want an electric Cadillac Escalade. This is the kind of car he hopes Cadillac will soon work on.
