Max and Jake Caliger were in for a treat at the Newport Beach Film Festival opening Thursday.

The actor, best known for his work as Eric "E" Murphy on Entourage, was very personable and cooperative during a pre-event reception for the inaugural Ryan Getzlaf Golf Shootout. But then again there wasn't that much media to deal with at the event.
