ForbesAutos.com recently caught up with the stars of HBO’s hit series Entourage at a Season Four premiere party in Manhattan. If you’ve never seen the show, you might be scratching your head wondering where the connection lies. Thing is, the boys in the television show drive nothing but the hottest, most expensive vehicles on the planet. They’re playing movie stars, after all. But does art reflect life?
What Forbes discovered was that most of the crew have green, low-key tastes. Their balloons were further popped when several of the choices turned out to be the Toyota Prius; labeling the choice in car as “unexciting”.
So who’s driving what? Adrian Grenier revealed that his first and current car is a Prius. Mark Wahlberg, Executive Producer of Entourage (and who’s early life the show is based on) revealed that his dream car would be an electric Cadillac Escalade saying, “Hopefully, Cadillac will be working on that. If we had listened to Jimmy Carter, we’d have some great electric cars right now.”
Rex Lee, who plays the character Lloyd, is planning on buying a Prius; as is Hayden Panettiere, who plays the cheerleader on the show Heroes. She’s selling her Porshe Cayenne SUV and feels terrible she hasn’t done it sooner. From the article,
“‘Why am I selling it? Because I feel like a bad human being, and I hate to say this, but when you’re an actor and in the spotlight, people watch what you do, people watch what you drive, watch what you say. And it feels to me â€” I’m into charities and into those kind of things â€” so I feel like if I’m trying to make a change and everything else and voice my opinion, then at least I can be driving a good, healthy car.’”
