Tube: Elephant & Castle ADRIAN GRENIER is looking tanned and tired when we meet and I cant help wondering if the curly-haired charmer whose former conquests include a swimsuit model and, according to gossip, Paris Hilton, has been enjoying too many nights on the town. Horizontal jogging would explain Greniers worn-out look and if hes anything like Vincent Chase, the Hollywood heart-throb he plays in Entourage, he wont be going without. But the 33-year-old actor plays his cards close to his chest, so questions about whether hes anything like bed-hopping Vince are met with: Im an actor play- ing a character, not myself. Grenier gets top billing on the show but he raves about his posse of Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly and Jerry Ferrara. All the guys are so down-to- earth and no one thinks theyre the star. We keep each other grounded and if you go out you know theres someone there who has got your back. Grenier was born in New Mexico and hes of Apache and European descent, which explains the swarthy good looks. Like his small-screen counterpart, he was raised in Queens, New York, and he didnt have much of any worth on his CV (the romcom Drive Me Crazy and a Britney Spears video) until Entourage came along in 2004 and The Devil Wears Prada in 2006. With the sixth season premiering soon, Vince has been through the mill (smash hit with Aquaman, fall from grace with Medellin) but hes stood by his boys. Thats what the show is about, the friendship between these guys. Do I have my own entourage? Sure, but isnt entourage just a fancy word for friends? And what about the women? Is Adrian as successful as Vince? He sidesteps the question. Actually, Vince hasnt had much action lately. When we shot the pilot there were all these girls around the pool and I thought Wow, this is what its going to be like for the next few years -- but it hasnt. Im starting to complain about that.
