Rex Lee: From “Entourage” to “Suburgatory”
For seven seasons, he starred as Lloyd, the long-suffering assistant of Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) on Entourage. Rex Lee not only had a steady high-profile gig, but he broke ground as a gay Asian-American actor playing a gay Asian-American character in a major role.
He recently spoke to AfterElton.com about what a life-changing experience it all was: “In Hollywood vernacular I was what they call a ‘nobody’, and all of a sudden I was somebody that people knew. …One day nobody knew who I was, and the next day I was at Outfest… and all of a sudden I heard people talking behind me like, ‘that’s the guy from Entourage, I just saw him on TV the other day!’ And as quickly as that, my life was completely different.”
Now Rex has a new TV role on the freshman ABC comedy series Suburgatory as Mr. Wolf, a well-meaning guidance counselor at a suburban high school.
We wish him another long and successful run!
