HBO's 'Entourage' has its final preem

It certainly wasn’t the time to get all nostalgic at HBO’s last “Entourage” preem.

While celebrating the eighth and final season inside the majestic Beacon Theater, the cast and producers took a peek Tuesday night into the crystal ball and couldn’t believe what they saw.

“Get ready for the first Jewish president,” said the show’s creator, Doug Ellin, of what the future holds for Jeremy Piven’s character, Ari Gold.

“Well, Rahm Emanuel has been the chief of staff to the president and now he’s the mayor of Chicago, where I’m from,” quipped Piven. “That shark bastard Ari could definitely pull it off.”

But don’t expect Lloyd, his long-tortured assistant, to be his running mate.

“We’ll be rivals soon enough,” said Rex Lee.

The after-party, held at the American Museum of Natural History, featured an extremely diverse guest list. Ben Kingsley munched on a few sliders while chatting with Mark Wahlberg. Cincinnati Bengals’ Dhani Jones and rapper Pharrell Williams shared their views on the elongated NFL labor dispute. Kevin Connolly and Emmanuelle Chriqui enjoyed a drink as model Selita Ebanks and Lance Bass looked on.

“I can see E and Sloan getting married down the road and having some kids,” Chriqui said.

“Ah, I’ll probably blow it,” said Connelly. “I always do.”

But leave it to Adrian Grenier to deliver the future shocker about his Chase character. “Believe it or not, I’m going to be bald. But I’ll still be a star.”
