From Gopher to Kingfish

"It's a go. Love you all." That was the tweet heard round the world last October when Entourage creator Doug Ellin confirmed that his beloved TV show was finally coming to the movie theaters following years of intense speculation. And with filming finally set to start next week, beloved series mainstay Jerry Ferrara – that's Turtle to you and the guys – has plenty to share. "When I look back on the show – and I've been doing that a lot recently – it plays like a time capsule, a formative period in these guys' lives," he says. "Now that we're ready to start shooting, the one thing that I've thought about over and over again is success. That's one of the most powerful things anyone can go through. So how much does it change you?" From his memories of filming alongside Gary Busey – "I'm not going to lie, I was intimidated and very afraid knowing that I had a scene with him" – to what it was really like inside that bunny suit, Ferrara traces Turtle's wild rise from second fiddle to financial magnate.
