Ari Gold's inspiration thought 'Entourage' would bomb
"I didn't think the show would go anywhere," he tells the audience. Emanuel, of course, served as the model for Ari Gold, the role that earned Jeremy Piven three Emmys and two Golden Globes.
Despite Emanuel's prediction, the show ran for eight seasons on HBO, is in wide syndication and is now slated for a turn on the big screen. The story adds that the only reason Emanuel's wife found out about it is her friends told her.
Would Ari Gold fire Ari Emanuel for such a public disclosure?
