Adrian Grenier on Entourage set

It’s. About. Freaking. Time.

Although I have enjoyed many things about Entourage, there is one thing that’s always bothered me: ‘s hair. I have never understood why women would throw themselves at a man with a mop like that.

Well - based on these pictures of Grenier on set of his HBO show in Los Angeles, it appears a change has finally come. Now if they could just tame Vincent Chase’s eyebrows…

Season 7 of will begin later this summer.

-Neal McDonough-Did Neal McDonough’s religious beliefs cost him a gig? According to a report, the married Catholic was replaced on ABC’s Scoundrels because he didn’t want to do love scenes with Virginia Madsen. It’s a principle the Desperate Housewives star has stuck by during his career.

-True Blood, which was already based on Charlaine Harris’ novels, will now be adapted into a comic book series. Although the main characters will be included, the stories will be different from the ones seen on HBO.

-Damages could soon be pulling double-duty. If the critically-acclaimed drama is going to stay afloat, future seasons may air first on DirecTV before it airs on FX. That’s similar to the arrangement NBC had for Friday Night Lights.

-Jimmy Kimmel’s love of Lost has earned him a prime position. The late night comedian will now host a post-finale special after the show ends its run on Sunday, May 23.

Big Love

UPDATE: You can read Sevigny’s apology for her comments here.

“It was awful this season, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not allowed to say that! [Gasps.] It was very telenovela. I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political campaign seemed to me very farfetched. I mean, I love the show, I love my character, I love the writing, but I felt like they were really pushing it this last season. And with nine episodes, I think they were just squishing too much in. HBO only gave us nine Sundays, because they have so much other original programming—especially with The Pacific—and they only have a certain amount of Sundays per year, so we only got nine Sundays. I think that they had more story than episodes. I think that’s what happened… Me and the girls [ and Ginnifer Goodwin] definitely were not very happy with where it was going—or more kind of, ‘We really hope it’s going to work. It seems like they’re really pushing it.’ I think next season, they’re going to go back to more just the family. I think that the stuff with Ben and Lois and that stuff was really great in Mexico, but… [Laughs.]”

-Golden Globe winner Chloe Sevigny (Nicolette Grant) agreeing with criticism of ‘s fourth season.
