Entourage: The 20 Best Cameos
The best stars-as-themselves performances on HBO's Hollywood story...

submit to reddit

The eighth and final season of Entourage is drawing to a starry close, like Vinnie Chase doing one last lap of the LA talent-pool. It's time to celebrate by paying tribute to some of the show’s most satisfying cameo appearances. Of course, there’s more to HBO’s contagious bromance than celebrities playing twisted versions of themselves – it’s all about friendship, kids – but they’ve always been fun, spot-on and added another layer of realism to the already pitch-perfect depiction of Hollywood life life. Come'on, where else would you see Sydney Pollack and Kanye West on the same cast list? Here's our pick of 20 favourites.

Gary Busey

Appears in:
Busey And The Beach (Season 1, Episode 6)
The Boys Are Back In Town (Season 2, Episode 2)
Gary's Desk (Season 4, Episode 8)

Gary Busey has always had an unpredictable presence, but here his full eccentricity is unleashed. Playing himself (surely the role of a lifetime) as an intimidating actor-turned-artist, Busey's unsettling intensity and toothy tough-guy vibe intimidates the gang after they visit his exhibition. Clearly, some of his pseudo-philosophical ramblings were improvised (see the true expression of surprise on Jerry Ferrara's face after being 'cleansed'), while at times you wonder if he's even acting.

Memorable Quote:
Busey analysing Ari: “You are a gut maggot… with no guts.”

1 Val kilmer!
Great feature on my all-time favourite show (on a par with the Sopranos) but how can you miss out Val Kilmer's appearance as the sherpa?! and kanye was worth a mention! More

2 Scarlett...
I'd have to put a vote in for Scarlett Johansson at the end of Season 1. It really made a statement about the level of celebrity associated with the show and really puts Vince's credentials out there! Man I'm gonna' miss Entourage... More

Paulie Shore was the best cameo, I love the hatred between him and Drama More

4 This really annoys me....
...you devote a whole section to a TV show, albeit one about the industry, but can't find the compassion to write even a single line about the passing of Spartacus' Andy Whitfield this week. I know he's not box office or Hollywood-enough for much more than a slugline or two, but he had a promising future. Come on Empire. You're better than this. More

Matt Damon wins hands down, with Ralf Macchio 2nd. Drama's line to Vince when he hands him the phone after Matt calls his bluff on Vinny being there is pure Johnny Drama classic "Sorry Bro, he Jason Bourned me!" More

Great list, really gonna miss the show! Would have included the Zac Efron cameo though, really made me laugh and it was also a great moment for Ari getting one over on Adam Davies. More
