Sports Figures Who Remind Us of the "Entourage" Cast

0 of 5

    If you haven't been watching Entourage for the past seven years, then there had better be a great excuse for it. The show is my personal favorite of all time, and I recommend it to anyone. 

    The show is what every American male wishes they had, and it makes all of us want to move out to Hollywood as soon as possible.

    Entourage documents the acting career of Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), a young A-list movie star and his childhood friends from Queens, New York City, as they navigate the unfamiliar terrain of Los Angeles, Calif.

    Sports are also a main focus throughout the show with stars such as Chris Bosh, Chuck Lidell and Tom Brady, (just to name a few) all making small appearances on the hit show. 

    With the final season coming up this Sunday at 10:30 p.m. Eastern on HBO, it only seems fitting to compare our favorite athletes to the characters of Entourage

Vincent Chase: Mark Sanchez

1 of 5

    As seen in the intro slide, these two have a physical resemblance—but the parallels don't end there.

    One is from New York and moves to Los Angeles. The other is from Los Angeles and now lives in New York.

    Either way you look at it, these two couldn't be more similar. 

    Both Chase and Sanchez are young stars trying to make a name for themselves, and both seem to have no problem when it comes to picking up the ladies.

    In the show, Chase travels on a bumpy road while achieving his stardom due to drug use and inappropriate spending, while Sanchez has lost two straight AFC Championships causing the media to spotlight his every move.

    With high expectations for both stars coming up in their respective seasons, we will see who gets back on track and who folds under pressure. 

Eric Murphy: Wes Welker

2 of 5

    Dependability is what Wes Welker and Eric Murphy have in common. Both bail their respective leaders out of trouble, and both make them look good all while doing it under the spotlight. 

    Both are sometimes over-looked because of their size but won't back down from a fight if you bark up the wrong tree. 

    The two are "right-hand men" to their leaders and always do what is asked for them and then some. 

Johnny "Drama" Chase: Brian Wilson

3 of 5

    Watch this video, and you'll understand why Johnny "Drama" Chase is the exact person that Giants pitcher Brian Wilson is. 

    Both live for the spot light and will do anything in their power to have it shine on them at all times. Both guys love their facial hair and also have personalities that cannot be categorized because they are never the same at any time. 

    The producers should consider doing a ninth season just so we can see these two in action together. 

Turtle: Nick Swisher

4 of 5

    Both Turtle and Nick Swisher are the funny guys of the group and always seem to put everyone around them in a great mood.

    Although they may have never starred in a film or have been an MVP of the league, both guys mean a ton to their respective groups. 

    Both guys are irreplaceable for their respective roles, but both guys sometimes see their importance overlooked at times as well as their insight and personal connections to sometimes solve difficult issues around the house or club house.

Ari Gold: Drew Rosenhaus

5 of 5

    Ari Gold and Drew Rosenhaus are both the most powerful agents in their respective fields, and they let the world know about it. 

    From picking them up from prison, to hanging out at a high school party, both men are always seen spending time with their cliental. Both fight extremely hard for their clients, and usually get them more money and opportunities then they originally deserved.

    This is what ultimately brings them other high quality individuals and boosts their names even more. 

    I would love to see Ari and Drew dual it out for a prized client on a future episode of Entourage
