Entourage and the “Paps”:
Bring Your Questions for Adrian Grenier
By STEPHEN J. DUBNER
We feature all kinds of people on this blog – drug dealers, prostitutes, even academic economists – but readers are always complaining that we don’t have any movie stars. Today that changes.
Below we are soliciting your questions for Adrian Grenier, the actor who plays Vincent Chase on HBO’s Entourage and has appeared in The Devil Wears Prada and other films. Grenier also makes documentary films – Shot in the Dark (2002), which chronicled his search for his estranged father, and Teenage Paparazzo, which premieres on HBO on Sept. 27. (The Sleb Suit, meanwhile, is already available.)
Teenage Paparazzo is a film about the paparazzi industry, yes, but it is also a film about the price of fame; it focuses on Grenier’s intriguing relationship with a 15-year-old paparazzo named Austin Visschedyk. I saw the film a few months ago at the Gen Art Film Festival, and thought it was quite good. Visschedyk is a fantastic character; as a celeb himself, Grenier is in a good position to assess the state of fame; and the film also features trenchant commentary from folks like Mark Crispin Miller.
