Mark Wahlberg would love to be involved in an “Entourage” reboot amid buzz that the hit HBO show could be making a comeback.

“I don’t know if that’s going to happen but I would definitely support it,” Wahlberg, 51, exclusively told Page Six at the grand opening of Tao’s restaurant Cathédrale at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Wahlberg, a co-executive producer of the show that was loosely based on his own rise to Hollywood fame, called the series a “cultural phenomenon.”

“I was always sad to see the show end,” Wahlberg admitted, adding that he isn’t certain if there have been any real conversations about a reboot.

Still, the “Ted 2” actor shared that he “loved” “Entourage” stars Adrian Grenier (Vincent Chase), Kevin Connolly (Eric “E” Murphy), Jeremy Piven (Ari Gold), Jerry Ferrara (Turtle) and Kevin Dillon (Jonny “Drama” Chase), and would be a fan of their reunion.

“They did an amazing job,” Wahlberg said.

He even recalled bringing the former cast members to Vegas to make sure they had chemistry before filming the pilot episode of the HBO series, which ran for eight seasons from 2004 to 2011,

“Before we shot the pilot, I brought all the guys to Vegas… It was a bit of a chemistry thing, getting ready to come and cut loose,” Wahlberg, who moved to Las Vegas last year, told us. “It seems like it was just yesterday, and now I live here.”

As for how an “Entourage” reboot would look today, Wahlberg said that things would probably be less of a party.

“It would look like an older group of guys probably doing things more like me, going to church and you know hopefully having families and getting up early and working out,” Wahlberg laughed, adding a reboot “Might not be as exciting as when they were running the night clubs and running all around Vegas.”

Reboot chatter for the show has been swirling since the show’s creator, Doug Ellin, shared that he is shopping a new show that includes some of the original cast members, though it was unclear if the series would be a total revival.

 “We got a new show with a lot of them. Soon I hope #rambleon,” Ellin, 55, tweeted, adding that he has pitched a show idea and “thought we had a deal with a big production company but I don’t think that is going to happen.”

Ellin has teased wanting to make a reboot before and admitted in 2021 that he just needs Wahlberg to get behind the project.

“Adrian Grenier said he’s in, big news … I got all of them,” Ellin told TMZ in August 2021. “So, yeah, I wouldn’t do it without the five, and [executive producer] Mark Wahlberg just needs to call HBO and make it happen, and all will be good.”

And several of the former cast members have expressed interest in signing on for a revival.

Last month, Piven, 57, said he’d love to explore bringing the crew back together again.

“It would be fun to investigate where all these people would be today,” Piven told E! News in April. “There’s been so much that has happened since then that it’d be a very fertile ground to explore.”

Dillon, 57, admitted last year that he considers a reboot every day.

“I would love to do it, and I’m pretty sure everyone in the cast would love to do it and I’d push it all the time,” Dillon told in 2022.

But Grenier, 46, said that he has a lot going on but that he would definitely consider a reboot depending on the deal.

“First, I’ll look at the deal. What is it? What are we doing? I’m pretty open to anything,” Grenier told Entertainment Weekly in August 2021. “I’m pretty focused right now, but if there’s an opportunity to reboot ‘Entourage,’ I’d certainly take a look.”

While Wahlberg shared his support for the show’s return, he definitely has his hands full with other ventures including his tequila brand, Flecha Azul.

“I knew that the category and space was on fire and I knew that there was a lot of celebrity tequilas out there,” he told Page Six on Saturday. “But what appealed to me was being involved with [co-founders] Abe [Ancer] and Aron [Marquez].

“They’ve created something that is very authentic to their culture and be a part of them and give them the recognition that they deserve, but also being able to introduce it to a mass market and be partners with them in something very appealing to me.”

Wahlberg was seen pouring shots of his Flecha Azul tequila behind the bar for partygoers at the grand opening of Cathédrale Las Vegas where guests included Nina Dobrev and Shaun White, Anderson .Paak, Flavor Flav, Lil Jon, and Tao co-CEO Noah Tepperberg and his wife Melissa Wood-Tepperberg.
