The Entourage themed “Victory The Podcast” hosted by the show’s creator Doug Ellin, stars Kevin Dillon, and Kevin Connolly based out of Connolloy’s Action Park Media company hosted Jeremy Piven, who plays Ari Gold on the show, to talk about a number of topics.
Piven has been vocal about wanting to do a reboot or an Ari Gold spinoff and finally decided to join the Victory Podcast in a new part episode.
In the interview Piven talks about how he helped get Bono to say “Feliz Cumpleanos, Johnny Drama” during a U2 concert that was in an episode of the second season of Entourage.
Piven was at the concert the night before and was back stage and met with Bono and his manager. In true Ari Gold fashion, he was able to close the deal and made an iconic scene happen at the Staples Center concert.
Piven also talked about talking to Kobe Bryant during a filming at a Laker’s game. Piven remained in character while talking with Kobe. The entire thing was filmed but did not make the cut of the episode for whatever reason.
It is a very good episode. If you want to check out the entire thing, you can listen at the following links.
