President-elect Barack Obama asked Illinois Representative Rahm Emanuel to be his chief of staff today. If that name sounds familiar outside of the political realm, it might be because his brother is Hollywood super agent Ari Emanuel, founder of the Endeavor Agency and the all-but-confirmed inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s Ari Gold character on Entourage.
What does that have to do with the arts in North Texas? Outside of the fact that many of you probably get HBO and watch Entourage like me, absolutely nothing. I just thought it was interesting.
