Actor, director, and producer Kevin Connolly proves you don't have to be tall to lead the pack.
Who is Kevin Connolly?
Kevin Connolly (or as we still like to call him, “E”) is best known for his role on HBO's hit series Entourage (2004-2011). Connolly played the straight-talking friend-turned-manager of superstar Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier). We were huge fans of the show.
Produced by and based loosely on the life of Mark Wahlberg, Entourage is blatantly targeted at young male viewers. It's full of obvious ploys – hot women, sweet cars, cool parties, booze, drugs, money and fame.
And it works wonderfully.
“E” is an especially cool character, because he's the leader of the pack, despite being the short guy. The fact he's short is something that Vince's agent, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), never lets go. “E” manages Vincent's career and makes crucial business decisions. He is ultimately responsible for Vince's success.
Plus, you know his fictitious girlfriend, Sloan? Connolly supposedly dated her in real life.
Before his breakthrough role on Entourage, Kevin Connolly was working steadily in Hollywood. He acted in Rom-Coms like He's Just Not That Into You (2009) and The Ugly Truth (2009). He was also in the Disney vehicle Secretariat (2010).
Outside of the movie business, he also provided voice work on the animated series “Robot Chicken” in 2007.
How tall is Kevin Connolly?
According to our sources, Kevin Connolly is 5′ 7″. At five-foot-seven, he is two inches shorter than the average American male.
It's pretty obvious he's on the shorter side, especially when he's photographed with his co-stars and women he's dated.
And, like most handsome, successful, short men, he has no issue dating taller women. In fact, it seems he prefers them.
Is Kevin Connolly married?
Mr. Connolly has not yet taken a missus. According to US Magazine, he was dating French actress Francesca Dutton between July 2017 and April 2018. We haven't heard much about the couple since the press last spring.
Should we assume they are still happily together? Or, does the fact that he took his former cast mate and ex-girlfriend as a date to a wedding mean they're over?
As a certified member of Leonardo DiCaprio's *ahem* posse aka The Wolfpack, we don't expect Connolly to be walking down the aisle anytime soon. This crew tends to spend a lot of time at clubs, on yachts, and dating Victoria's Secret models. They're not the marrying kind.
What is Kevin Connolly doing now?
Despite still being known as “E” from Entourage, Kevin Connolly has kept himself busy over the past few years. Some of his latest projects have included him acting, directing, and producing.
In fact, according to IMDB he's been involved in several projects over the last few years, including:
- Producing The Exorcism at Lincoln High.
- Acting in TV Series “The Oath” (2019); Also directing three episodes
- Directing three episodes of “Snatch” (2018)
- Directing the John Travolta film Gotti (2018)
- Acting in TV Series “The Pitch” (2016)
Of course, not every project can be as successful as Entourage. Connolly's taken a few Ls over the years. Gotti is one of only a handful of films ever with a 0% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Yikes.
Fortunately, when he gets down, he gets back up again. As mentioned above, he's been at work on The Oath on Sony's Crackle and The Exorcism at Lincoln High.
How to Dress Like Kevin Connolly
Connolly sticks to the basics on the red carpet. His style involves a whole lot of blue and grey three-piece suits. If it ain't broke and all that…
Even if his looks are a bit boring, he always looks professional and appropriate.
Outside of the red carpet, his street style is fairly basic too. He obviously loves blue, and why not? The color highlights his eyes nicely. In fact, the baby blue shade he prefers is one of those colors that's flattering on nearly every skin tone.
Occasionally, Kevin Connolly goes for a layered look. He'll wear a button-down shirt over a plain tee, with jeans, for example. That's about as wild as it gets for him.
Above all, Connolly knows how clothing is supposed to fit. And he's usually a well dressed man. We most likely won't seem him a printed suit or a Gucci bomber jacket, but sometimes we need a nice, simple palate cleanser between the Jared Letos and Nick Jonases of the world.
We salute Kevin's simple, straightforward style.
