Doug Ellin Back With Fiancee After Social Media Spat


Doug Ellin

The writer/producer became embroiled in a nasty online fight with interior designer Maddie Diehl in February (16) when he posted an edited version of a "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster which read "Keep Calm, I'm Single" on Instagram.

Diehl responded saying she was looking forward to "new beginnings" and the fiery exchanges continued back and forth until Ellin apologised for his "insensitive" original post and wished Diehl "nothing but love and true happiness in her life."

However, it appeared they had rekindled their relationship when Diehl shared pictures of the pair on vacation on her Instagram account and Ellin has now confirmed the engagement is back on.

Diehl decided to responded with her own photo from a wedding, where she was snapped being carried by a group of men. In the caption she claimed she was looking forward to "new beginnings."

Entourage Director Defends Film's Superstar Cameos


Doug Ellin Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson, Liam Neeson, Green Bay Packers star Clay Matthews and soccer hero Thierry Henry are among the non-cast members that show up in the film, and Ellin admits none of them were on board when he started shooting.

He tells WENN, "I got a call on the set that Clay Matthews is supposed to be at a wedding but he swears he'll miss it if we put him in the movie, so I said, 'Come on down', and then (sports commentator) Jim Gray was on set and he said, 'How's Mike Tyson not in the movie?' I called Mike and he was on set six hours later! He shows up with his daughter.

"Liam Neeson was different because he was on a wish list. It was like a joke, like getting U2 and somehow we got them. I think Liam's son loved the show, so he was in.

Entourage Review

Very Good

Both shameless and shamelessly entertaining, this relentlessly boyish movie carries on exactly as the TV show left off after its eight-season run. In fact, it actually feels like a ninth season was condensed into 104 minutes, as it carries on with the same misogynistic approach, leering at women while laughing at the inappropriate behaviour of men. But these guys still have their charm, and when they get together the screen lights up with snappy banter and a hilariously knowing depiction of how crazy life is within the movie industry.

It's been four years since we last saw them, and Vince (Adrien Grenier) is just out of a disastrous marriage, yearning to direct his next movie, a raving sci-fi take on Jeckyll and Hyde. As luck would have it, his loyal ex-agent Ari (Jeremy Piven) is now a studio boss, so he lets him make the movie with his best pal Eric (Kevin Connolly) as producer, his older brother Johnny (Kevin Dillon) in a key supporting role and his pal Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) as their driver. But the Texan moneybags (Billy Bob Thornton) is dubious about all of this, and sends his know-it-all son Travis (Haley Joel Osment) to keep an eye on post-production. And Travis has some ideas of his own, much to everyone's horror.

While the rather bland Grenier holds the centre as Vince, the rest of the characters are given subplots to run with. Ari is in marriage counselling because he can't tear himself from his work; Eric goes through a few more women while preparing for his ex-girlfriend to give birth to their child; Johnny hopes this small role might finally kickstart his career; Turtle pursues a relationship with MMA champion-turned actress Ronda Rousey; and Travis is jealous of how much time Vince is spending with model-turned-actress Emily Ratajkowski. None of these plots have anywhere to go, but they pass the time amiably.

A Lot Has Changed Since The Golden Days Of "Entourage"


Adrian Grenier Jeremy Piven Kevin Connolly Billy Bob Thornton Doug Ellin

In the light of news  that an Entourage movie is finally out, the internet is now wondering – is there any more story left to tell? Of course there are, according to creator Doug Ellin. The big screen version of the critical-darling-turned-nostalgia-watch show came out Friday and the critics are about to have their say.  

Adrian Grenier
Adrian Grenier plays the lead character - the talented, but flighty actor Vincent Chase.

Entourage was one of HBO’s highest-rated half-hour shows, and some seasons the highest, during its run, but viewership still just topped out at an average of 8.3 million (including on-demand and digital viewing) during Season 6. And its dismal performance in syndication, both on Tribune stations and later on Spike, raises a caution flag.

Entourage Trailer


The world of acting is no longer enough for superstar Vincent Chase, whose now looking at a career in directing. With his lifestyle having taken a significant overhaul following several years of hedonism (though it might not seem like it), Ari Gold is still acting as his agent despite his new job as CEO of Time Warner and is willing to give his client a shot at what he wants to do - even if no-one else seems to think he can pull off directing. He lands a $100 million budget but things get complicated when he goes over by $15 million. Vince isn't overly concerned with the film becoming a flop, but it could mean the end of Ari's career before its started if it doesn't come through.

Social Media Saves Doug Ellin After Flat Tyre Drama In California Desert


Doug Ellin

Entourage creator Doug Ellin spent part of his Valentine's Day weekend (14-15Feb15) stranded in the California desert with his new fiancee after a tyre on his car burst.

The Tv writer/producer treated his bride-to-be, Madeleine Diehl, to a romantic retreat at the Madison Club near Palm Springs, California, but the couple's journey back to Los Angeles on Sunday (15Feb15) turned into a disaster as Ellin had to pull his Mercedes-Benz over in the middle of the desert.

Without a spare tyre to hand and representatives at Ellin's roadside assistance firm Aaa only willing to tow him seven miles (11.26 kilometres), the writer decided to turn to Instagram.com to moan about his bad luck.
