LET'S HUG IT OUT: In one of my occaisional examples of being a bit behind the times, I've been catching up with the second season of Entourage on DVD over the past few days. While Jeremy Piven's very funny and very profane turn as Ari Gold gets most of the attention, the more I think about it, the more convinced I am that the true MVP of the show is Kevin Dillon as Johnny Drama. The meta-ness is enough to earn some love (somewhat B-list actor Kevin Dillon, overshadowed by his brother's career, plays a D-list actor overshadowed by his brother's career), but Dillon manages to make Drama simultaneously pathetic, disgusting, and bizarrely emphatetic. In guest stars, you have to give credit to Constance Zimmer (the new Paula Marshall--patron saint of doomed shows--with parts on In Justice, Joan of Arcadia, and Good Morning Miami in her recent past) for playing a tough as nails executive who can put Ari in his place.
