The Eight-Day Week
“I’m in the south of France, so I can’t be there this evening,” began a note from Woody Allen that was read aloud before Monday night’s Peggy Siegal Company screening of his latest film, Blue Jasmine, at MoMA. “I only wish I was in New York and couldn’t be there.”
This fits the notoriously press-shy director’s M.O. During last summer’s premiere of To Rome, With Love, Mr. Allen braved the crowds for the red carpet before beating a hasty exit through some shrubbery to avoid the paparazzi, a feat that many of Jasmine’s stars can probably relate to.
“Jesus Christ,” muttered Louis C.K. as a rogue photographer broke ranks and began flashing blindingly bright lights into the corner where he and his former Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler had sequestered themselves before the film. “Can you believe her?”
Ms. Poehler, in a somewhat more jovial mood, continued regaling the comedian with the story of her recent chat with President Barack Obama.

Among the guests? None other than Entourage star Adrian Grenier. Now that it’s drawing some star power, it looks like the Low Line might be able to rock some of that High Line magic all the way to reality.
Deadline reports the latest installment in Hollywood’s continued practice of letting no television property lie: Entourage, which concluded its run on HBO last year, has seen its screenplay completed by creator Doug Ellin.
Adrian Grenier was one of the first people to arrive to a special advanced screening of episodes two and three of the new season of Entourage last night, which is more than he could say for his appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly yesterday morning.
“I didn’t realize it was live! I thought they Read More
Girls in high heels teetered down the aisle of the theater at Cinema 2 on Third Avenue, searching for their names on the red cushioned seats, getting reading to watch the New York City premiere of the documentary The Cove, a heart-wrenching film about the 23,000 dolphins that are killed in one little cove in Read More
The tagline being used to promote the sixth season of Entourage (how exactly did we get to six already?) says everything you need to know about why the show is still entertaining after all these summers: “Life Changes. Friends Don’t.” Strip away the dirty jokes and ridiculous plot Read More
WASHINGTON, D.C.–Shortly before the Honey Brothers, a New York band featuring the Entourage actor Adrian Grenier, performed at an inuaguration party hosted by Calvin Klein and Rock the Vote, another familiar New York face appeared on the stage of the 9:30 Club (think Webster Hall) on V Street.
In New York, the long-haired, nose-pierced model Read More
Up until last night, we’d been pretty pleased with the latest season of Entourage. The show, which lamely limped along for almost two full years has gotten its mojo back by having Vincent Chase decline into the Hollywood Bargain Bin. So it was a little disconcerting to watch the latest episode, which would have even Read More
