Adrian Grenier              

Actor Known for HBO's "Entourage"; Environmental Activist; UN Ambassador

Adrian Grenier is an actor, filmmaker, social advocate and musician born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and raised in New York City. He is best known for playing the iconic role of A-list movie star Vincent Chase in the HBO smash hit "Entourage," a comedy-drama about a young actor and his childhood friends from Queens navigating the Hollywood lifestyle. "Entourage" premiered in 2004, ran for eight seasons and was syndicated internationally in 21 markets. Grenier reprised his role along with the entire cast in the Warner Bros’ film version of Entourage*, which was directed by series creator Doug Ellin.

In addition to Adrian’s work on "Entourage," Grenier has appeared in many popular films including The Devil Wears Prada (2006) opposite Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, which grossed over $324 million worldwide, and Twentieth Century Fox’s Drive Me Crazy (1999). His other film credits include Celebrity (1998), Anything Else (2003), Goodbye World (2013), Cecil B. Demented * (2000) and The Adventures of Sebastian Cole* (1998).

Grenier made his directorial and producing debut with his documentary Shot in the Dark, chronicling his years-long search for his father, which debuted on HBO in 2007. He also directed, wrote and produced the critically acclaimed documentary Teenage Paparazzo, a compelling piece of work examining the relationship between celebrity and society. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was later shown on HBO. Adrian’s other directorial/producing credits include How to Make Money Selling Drugs and Don't Quit Your Daydream, as well as a variety of shorts.

As founder of Reckless Productions, he has served as director, writer and producer of documentaries. Grenier is also an avid and talented musician, and the founder of Wreckroom Records, which is a music incubator for emerging artists.

He is a passionate environmentalist, which led to his creation of the green lifestyle site, a content & asset development, distribution and e-commerce hub designed to convey a more sustainable approach to the way people live through film, design, art and food. Grenier is also behind SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom, a nonprofit organization that seeks to provide high school students in NYC with opportunities to engage in experiential lessons around food, health, and sustainability. Additionally, he is on the Board of Directors for React to Film, a nonprofit that leverages the best documentary filmmaking to promote social responsibility and spark civic engagement. Most recently, Adrian’s latest eco-focused creative pursuit comes in the form of a search for "52: The Lonely Whale," a campaign seeking to raise awareness for ocean noise pollution. Grenier is Dell’s first-ever Social Good Advocate, a role in which he collaborates with Dell to promote healthier, more sustainable choices and actions through digital storytelling and advocacy.
