Things have been going so well for Johnny Drama, it’s almost too good to be true. A hit show, his own place, something’s got to give. It might, but not for a while. As season four of Entourage wraps up, actor Kevin Dillon assures fans that Johnny Drama is safe from any career-threatening cliffhangers.
Kevin "Drama" Dillon Talks Entourage
“Not at the end of season four,” he said. “Things are solid, the show is still a hit. They go to Cannes towards the end and that’s a big deal because Drama’s huge in Cannes. Viking Quest was huge over there supposedly.”
The gang really filmed in Cannes, but the real Frenchies did not go ga ga for them. “It was kind of minimal there because the show, they don’t air it in France. But there was a lot of people from the UK and Australia, other countries that love the show where it does really well. I guess in France you can see it but you have to get a special cable channel or something. Seems like I didn’t see many French people when we were there. I saw everyone from LA. It’s so weird, the festival and all that there. ”
In the world of Entourage, Cannes may be bigger than Comic Con for Drama. “Not that Vince isn’t [a star] there but Drama’s show has got like a cult status, Viking Quest was big there and still is watched a lot there.”
The French chicks love him too. “On the show, they love him.”
The idea of letting Drama come into his own made Dillon a little nervous, but it has played out in an Entourage-friendly way. “I feel pretty good because I’m still with the guys. I was a little concerned that Drama on his own would mean being with the guys less. I still want to be with the guys as part of the entourage. One guy cannot leave the Entourage. It won’t be an entourage anymore if any of the four guys left.”
Whatever is in store for a season five is purely in the mind of Doug Ellin. Dillon himself awaits word on Drama’s career fate. “I really couldn’t tell you that. That’s something that the writers are kind of thinking it through. I don’t even know if they know what they’re going to do with it now. It’s kind of fun having the success that Drama’s had. But it was a lot of fun watching him struggle as well. I don't know, I’m curious to see what they’re going to do with that.”
