    Wow, what a great character actor! I can't get enough of Entouage and I think "Johnny Drama" is a huge part of that. I quote his lines and mimic his "bro" all the time- I'm a girl! Can't wait to see him in some new roles as well.
  • Finally getting the recognition that he deserves!

    He is finally getting the recogntion that he deserves after being in the shadows of his famous former teen idol brother Matt. He is very funny as well as a really good actor. Glad that things are going well in his personal life. As he has a new baby girl and a new wife. Can't wait to see him if he can break out of Entourage but not for a long time.moreless
