Jerry Ferrara Returns in Season Five of Entourage!

IMTA alumni Jerry Ferrara returns for the highly anticipated premiere of the fifth season of the HBO show Entourage!

HBO describes the television show as,"The hit comedy series executive produced by Mark Wahlberg that takes a look at the day-to-day life of Vincent Chase, a hot young actor in modern-day Hollywood, and his entourage. He's brought with him from their hometown in Queens, NY: manager Eric, half-brother Drama, and friend Turtle. The series draws on the experiences of industry insiders to illustrate both the heady excesses of today's celebrity lifestyle, as well as the difficulty of finding love and success in the fast track of show biz. Now that the boys are getting used to the perks of stardom, Eric, along with superagent Ari, keep Vince's star rising while making sound decisions for a long-lasting career in a world of fleeting fame."

Jerry Ferrara plays Turtle, the loyal friend to Vince who is in charge of keeping up their household and their Los Angeles lifestyle. Turtle tends to find himself the brunt of their jokes, but the entourage knows they wouldn't be having half as much fun without him.

Jerry competed at IMTA in 2000 where he met and signed with an agent who encouraged him to move to LA where he landed the comedy King Of Queens. Jerry was then cast in the independent feature Cross Bronx and then worked on Brooklyn Rules. He is best known for his role as Turtle on HBO's popular and 7 Emmy-nominated TV show Entourage. He has received a nomination for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series from the Screen Actors Guild and TV Chemistry from the Teen Choice Awards. Jerry was a presenter at both the VMAs and the Emmys last year!!

Watch Jerry Ferrara as Turtle in the hit series Entourage,
premiering September 7th at 10pm!
