Video Clips: The best of Ari Gold

By Rick Morris

One of our great loves at The FDH Lounge -- classic TV characters. There are few who are better written and there are few who are better acted (by Jeremy Piven, with a character based on his real-life agent) than Entourage's Ari Gold, Hollywood super-agent. There are so many different words that can be used to describe Ari. Hyper-competitive. Insensitive. Politically incorrect. Ruthless. Unintentionally (in terms of how the character behaves) hilarious. But the most fitting ones are intense, compelling and always entertaining. Here's a tribute to TV's Ari Gold, with some of his greatest moments:
