A short interview with Kevin about his vintage Porsche – replica of James Dean’s Porsche 550 Spyder.

You just rebuilt James Dean’s classic Porsche Spyder. Out of all the iconic cars in the world, why did you choose that one?
I’m not a psychotic James Dean fan or anything, but he was a great actor, and I love that car. It has all these great details—the red leather seats, the LITTLE BASTARD stenciled on the back. Driving it is like being on a motorcycle.

Have you always been into sports cars?
Always. I’ve had a bunch of muscle cars. My real baby is my ’69 Firebird. That car is pretty.

As a teenager, what did you drive?
I did everything on a bike. I had a little 50 cc Honda street bike, then a KZ550, then a Ninja 1000, then a lowrider Harley. My brother Paul let me drive his Audi Fox, but I banged it up. Man, I destroyed that car.

What happened?
I wasn’t paying attention, the roads were wet, and I crashed it. He was not happy.

Any other accidents?
I’ve gone down on my bikes a few times, but it’s never been too nasty—I just scraped up my arms and stuff. Thank God I never made contact with a car, but I’ve had the tires slide out from me. That’s no fun. It takes a couple of good accidents to get you driving a little safer.

What’s the coolest car you’ve driven on Entourage?
I love that old Lincoln convertible with the suicide doors. I also got a huge kick out of driving the Aston Martin DB9 because it’s so fast.

I’m not a speed demon, but I’d say 130 mph.

Have you ever used your celebrity to get out of a ticket?
All the time. Back in the day I did a few episodes of NYPD Blue, and cops loved that show. They’d freak out. “You’re that dude from NYPD Blue!”

Any tips on having sex in a car?
Get a convertible. It’s much easier.
