Adrian Grenier of Entourage Fame Interviews with SRQ Magazine

We have to admit – even we get star-struck sometimes. This week was one of those “sometimes.” Adrian Grenier of HBO’s Entourage visited Ringling College of Art and Design as part of their Studio Lab series. SRQ had the honor of participating in an interview with Grenier about his upcoming project, 52: The Loneliest Whale. SRQ Magazine Staff Writer Phil Lederer joined the conversation to gain insight on his passion for this project.

“The goosebump factor is what drew me to this project,” said Grenier when Lederer asked why this particular story caught his eye. And we have to admit, we got the goosebumps, too.

52: The Loneliest Whale is a (forgive the pun) whale-sized mystery. Discovered in the 1980s through sonar of whale calls, the 52-hertz call of a whale in Pacific Ocean has never been matched to the language or call of another whale. This particular whale is speaking an entirely different dialect and it seems that no other documented whale understands his calls. Grenier is partnering with this film project to track and find 52 in search for answers. The goal?  To answer the whale’s calls into the void of the deep blue.
