THEN & NOW: The 'Entourage' cast 11 years after its debut

Entourage MovieWarner BrothersThe ‘Entourage’ movie hits theatres Wednesday.

With the “Entourage” movie opening in theatres everywhere today, we’re looking back on the 11 years since the show premiered in 2004.

Since the show ended its eight season run in 2011, the actors and actresses who made up the main cast have gone on to star in numerous television and movie roles — but none have managed to top their “Entourage” fame just yet.

See what Vinnie, Eric, Drama, Turtle, and Ari, the rest of the crew have been up to since the show ended.

THEN: Adrian Grenier played the young Hollywood movie star Vincent 'Vinnie' Chase.

NOW: Grenier starred in the 2013 apocalyptic dramedy 'Goodbye World' and became an environmental activist.

In March, Grenier's Kickstarter to fund a search for the 'loneliest whale in the world' was saved at the last minute by a $US50,000 donation from actor and fellow activist Leonardo DiCaprio.

Grenier and filmmaker Josh Zeman will use the proceeds from the fundraiser to film a team of scientists as they search for the lonely whale -- called '52 Hertz' for the high frequency of its mating song that no other whale speaks.

THEN: Kevin Connolly starred in all 96 episodes of 'Entourage' as Eric 'E' Murphy.

NOW: In 2014, Connolly was featured on the short-lived CBS sitcom 'Friends with Better Lives' and the critically panned film 'Reach Me.'

Connolly appeared in the ensemble cast of the 2014 drama 'Reach Me,' featuring Sylvester Stallone, Kelsey Grammar, and Kyra Sedwick. The film was universally panned by critics and holds a rare 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

THEN: Emmanuelle Chriqui played Sloan McQuewick, E's on-and-off love interest.

NOW: Chriqui landed a role on the CBS crime drama 'The Mentalist' from 2012-2013. She also appeared in a string of indie films.

She also has had a recurring role as the voice of Cheetarah on the reboot of the animated series 'ThunderCats.'

THEN: Jeremy Piven played Ari Gold, Vincent Chase's boisterous agent.

NOW: Piven just finished his third season playing the title role in the critically acclaimed PBS Masterpiece series 'Mr. Selfridge.'

Piven stars as Harry Selfridge, a London department store owner in the early 1900s. The period drama was recently renewed for a fourth season by British television network ITV.

He also appeared in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'

THEN: Perrey Reeves played Ari's wife, Melissa Gold.

NOW: Reeves had a brief recurring role on the USA Network spy drama 'Covert Affairs' in 2014 and has appeared in small roles on several TV shows.

She also had a short stint on TNT's crime drama 'Perception,' as well as single episode spots on 'NCIS' and USA's 'White Collar' and 'Royal Pains.'

THEN: Kevin Dillon played Johnny Drama, the older half-brother of Vincent Chase.

NOW: Dillon went on to star in the CBS series 'How to Be a Gentleman,' which aired for one season.

Much like his oft-struggling 'Entourage' character, the younger brother of actor Matt Dillon has had trouble finding work outside of his role as Johnny Drama.

In January, Dillon was cleared of charges that he assaulted a group of teens at a Los Angeles gas station, who were allegedly taunting him about his famous 'Entourage' role.

THEN: Jerry Ferrara starred as Vinnie's driver and personal assistant, Turtle.

NOW: Ferrara lost weight and acted alongside Kevin Hart in 'Think Like a Man' and 'Think Like a Man Too.'

In the TV series, Turtle was often derided for being slightly overweight by the other characters, but Ferrara has notably slimmed down for the movie role.

He's also had roles in a string of movies since the show's conclusion -- including 2012's 'Battleship' and 2013's 'Lone Survivor' starring 'Entourage' producer Mark Wahlberg.

THEN: Rex Lee played Ari's assistant (and frequent punching-bag) Lloyd Lee.

NOW: Lee plays another assistant on CBS's Emily Osment-led sitcom 'Young & Hungry.'

He also had a recurring role as a guidance counselor on ABC's now-canceled sitcom 'Suburgatory,' as well as single episode spots on 'Glee' and ABC's 'Fresh Off the Boat.'

THEN: Debi Mazar played Shauna Roberts, Vinnie's tough and tireless publicist.

NOW: Mazar went on to guest star on several TV shows like 'Melissa & Joey' and 'Happily Divorced.' She currently stars on the TV Land show 'Younger' alongside Hilary Duff.

The 'Goodfellas' actress was also featured in the 2013 film 'Lovelace,' a biographical drama about the life of porn actress Linda Lovelace.
