Who Was the Third Ari at the ‘Entourage’ Premiere?
Guys named Ari were everywhere (relatively speaking) at Tuesday night’s premiere party for the new season of “Entourage,” which took place at New York City’s American Museum of Natural History.
Jeremy Piven, who plays hard-driving Hollywood agent Ari Gold, was in attendance. So was Ari Emanuel, the real-life Tinseltown dealmaker on whom the character is based.
But there a third Ari — a mystery Ari, if you will — also living it up at the party. He was hanging out, in fact, with “Entourage” executive producer Mark Wahlberg, who also invited a number of childhood friends.
The Shmooze hasn’t yet figured out the connection between the third Ari — Rabbi Ari Shapiro is his full name — and “Entourage.” But given his first name, we imagine he fit right in.
