Entourage gets a lot of flack around the Internet. There’s a lot of talk about how it was just empty escapism, the chance to vicariously live a disgustingly decadent Hollywood lifestyle through its characters for a half hour a week. There’s a lot of criticism about how the show told the same stupid story over and over again, where it looked like the Vincent character (Adrian Grenier) might not do a movie, but then his buddies eventually convince him to do the movie, so then everyone can continue being rich and happy. Heck, people even like to throw around terms like “douchebag” and “bro” when describing the tone of the show. It’s not exactly the best thing HBO has produced, according to most TV/movie geeks. The fact is that a bunch of norms really did like the show though, seeing as it lasted for a ridiculous eight seasons, so even though an Entourage movie is a real head scratcher in the what-the-heck-is-this-thing-going-to-be-about department, it was pretty much bound to always happen. And, if you ask me, anything that promises to give us gloriously huge images of series regular and hot girl from Snow Day Emmanuelle Chriqui projected up on the big screen can’t be all bad.

But if the hype he’s been getting from film critics for his starring role in this summer’s Attack the Block is any indication, Boyega won’t be able to enjoy anonymity for very much longer. Attack the Block director Joe Cornish found Boyega performing in a small stage show in London and cast him in his hoods versus aliens monster movie based on that. One to take his work seriously, first-time film actor Boyega then took to studying season 4 of The Wire to get a handle on how to approach playing an urban youth, and brought reality to the character of Moses, in a performance that felt genuine and raw even when there was tons of alien monster insanity going on around it. Suddenly, it looks like the mess of film critics who have been pimping for Attack the Block all summer aren’t the only ones who noticed the work Boyega put in, because THR is reporting that Spike Lee has taken notice of the young actor and cast him as the lead of his HBO dramatic series Da Brick. Da Brick is about a young man from Newark, New Jersey (Brick City) who, upon being released from juvenile detention on his 18thbirthday, must traverse the harsh environment of his hometown and learn what it takes to be a man, with a little bit of […]

One of the few television series that I’ve ever bought that I just can’t get into is HBO’s Entourage. Which would explain why I’m not excited at all by the prospect of an Entourage movie…
