‘Entourage’: Vinnie Chase Is the Comeback Kid

HBO’s dishing up some details about the sixth season of Entourage, which premieres on July 12 (10:30PM ET), and it looks like Vinnie Chase (Adrian Grenier) is making a comeback to the A-list.

Season five saw Vince and the fellas – Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) – suffer the fallout of Vinnie’s critically-panned Medellin collaboration with Billy Walsh (Rhys Coiro) and his ill-fated Smoke Jumpers role as Vinnie’s stock (and his income) in Hollywood plummeted. Only some hustling on E’s part put Vince on the comeback trail, and when the season ended, he had landed a role in Martin Scorsese‘s “re-imagining” of The Great Gatsby.

Season six, then, kicks off with Gatsby set to premiere, Vince making an appearance on The Tonight Show (the old, Jay Leno version), Eric thinking about moving into a house of his own, Lloyd (Rex Lee) demanding a promotion from Ari (Jeremy Piven) and Vince actually planning to finally get a driver’s license. Curious to see what that will mean for permanent driver Turtle …

Speaking of, the new season will also find Turtle still dating Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler (who’s dating Ferrara in real life), while Ari tries to make Mrs. Ari (Perrey Reeves) befriend the wife (Jami Gertz) of his new partner, Andrew (Gary Cole), and Drama, who became the proud owner of Johnny Drama’s, a bar in Queens, at the end of season five, will be sought after by a producer (Prison Break‘s William Fichtner) who wants to remake a ’90s teen TV series for Drama to star in. Could it be Beverly Hills 90210-ish? As we know from Drama’s resume, he once guest starred on 90210 as Eddie, a guy who stalked Donna (Tori Spelling).

Meanwhile, among the celebs making cameos this season: Tom Brady, Ed Burns, Sigler, Zac Efron, 50 Cent, Leno, Steve Nash, Lil’ Wayne, LeBron James, David Schwimmer, Aaron Sorkin and Entourage producer Mark Wahlberg, while Beverly D’Angelo is back as Ari’s partner Babs, Debi Mazar returns as Vince’s publicist Shauna, Bow Wow continues as Eric’s writer client Charlie and Emmanuelle Chriqui is Eric’s returning love interest Sloan.

Channel Surfing – June 5

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– The fact that Neil Patrick Harris is hosting this year’s Tony Awards (Sunday, CBS, 8PM ET) makes it the first Tonys show I’ve had any interest in watching, and the “Top 10 Signs You’ve Hired a Bad Tony Awards Host” list that NPH delivered on Late Show with David Letterman last night made me that much more excited to see how the How I Met Your Mother star can liven up the event. The list, BTW, was one of the best recent Top 10s, particularly the cheeky nods to the Eminem/Bruno brouhaha and the Jeremy Piven Broadway scandal.

– Speaking of award show hosts, Craig Ferguson as Emmy host? Yes, that should definitely happen.

– Ovation TV will air a documentary tribute to the late Heath Ledger this summer.

Kung Fu star David Carradine‘s death may have taken a turn from sad to sad and creepy.

– Were the Dawson’s Creek kids really “four monstrous actors” once they got crazy famous on the show? A DC showrunner says so.

– If you haven’t read producer Josh Friedman‘s blog post about the end of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, check it out now. It’s hilarious, and sad, and is a reminder of how, no matter how much a fan base may love a show, it always comes down to business.

The Shield leads all nominees for the Television Critics Association Awards, and if that makes you realize how much you miss Vic Mackey and the gang, check out what the cast says about the possibility of a big-screen Shield movie. Do we dare to hope?

– Guess who’ll be back on the island – or somewhere in the Lost universe – for the sixth and final season? Aaron’s mama Claire.

– And an article in Newsweek about how reality TV makes women look stupid makes some interesting points, though I’d suggest the author watch a couple of episodes of The Hills. From Spencer Pratt to Justin Bobby, and almost every other dude in between, these aren’t exactly flattering portraits of the American male, either. Not to mention Jon Gosselin, at least half the male Real World-ers, Danny Bonaduce, Flavor Flav, Survivor‘s “Johnny Fairplay” …
