Seth Rogen's beef with 'Entourage' makes us wonder if anyone's still watching 'Entourage'

Posted on

Seth-Rogen-Jerry-Ferrara_l In Sunday night’s Entourage, Turtle and Drama engaged in a yawn-inducing “Why is HE with HER?” debate that referenced the central romance in 2007’s Knocked Up. Specifically, it was the same exact debate brought up by Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl’s characters in that movie. Was Turtle’s new girlfriend Meadow Soprano so much hotter than him that the couple’s Cute/”Funny”:Hot/”Blah” ratio would implode on itself, causing…I don’t know, something explosive? (I wish.) I couldn’t stomach the conversation because I’m not on board with the “couples need to be equally attractive” rule itself. WHO CARES? Sleep with the person you like and stop being so insecure!

Rogen himself caught wind of this nonsense and took it a bit more personally. “Doug Ellin is a moron from all I can understand, so it makes sense he doesn’t like me,” he told the L.A. Times. “Mark Wahlberg calledus misogynistic in an interview, so I think they kind of started that….It’s on. Luckily, I never have and never plan on watching Entourage.”

Which reminds me: I’m one of the only people I know still watching Entourage, mostly because it happens to be a series on which I’m not at least a few episodes (or seasons) behind. When those shows pop up, apparently I cling on for dear life. But after Sunday’s episode, which totally underutilized guest starts Jami Gertz and Autumn Reeser (whose “moment of interest” constituted Gary Cole leering at her legs, and not even from a good angle) (now who’s misogynistic? how you doin’), I might have to just let go for good. What about you?
