Kevin Connolly doesn't want Entourage to end.

"People have asked me if you can equate it to the end of a long relationship," Connolly said yesterday at the Santa Anita racetrack outside of L.A., where he was promoting the upcoming movie Secretariat. "Yeah—I equate it to being dumped! We're not breaking up with them. They're breaking up with us."

The "them" is, of course, HBO.

While Adrian Grenier hopes the cable network will listen to fan protest and keep the series alive, Connolly isn't too optimistic...

"It's too expensive," Connolly said. "You have people that are in one scene every other episode making $40,000 to $50,000. The amount of money that's being spent before we even set foot on the set is shocking."

Connolly laughed that producers couldn't cut costs enough to make it work. "If you notice, the first few years, we're in Cannes, we're at Sundance, we're here and there," he said. "And now? It's like, where are you guys going to be? Urth Café on Melrose."

Even so, cast and crew are confident an Entourage movie will happen because of Sex and the City. "The only people happier than the girls of Sex and the City when their movie opened were the Entourage guys. I was jumping up and down just like Sarah Jessica Parker."

That's not all the Connolly I have for you. Come back soon to find out what he has to say about making Secretariat opposite the oh-my-god-she's-still-unbelievably-gorgeous Diane Lane.
