“Entourage’s” third season ends this month but, as fans of the Howard Stern Show know, HBO is already shooting another season for us with Leslie Bibb and Artie Lange. In the meantime, does Vince want to put on a wig for a big-screen biography of The Ramones?

The guys head to Vegas for a much-needed break, and a $100K promo appearance for Vince (Adrian Grenier).
