Ariel "Ari" Z. Emanuel (born in 1961 in Chicago, Illinois) is a prominent talent agent and founder of the Endeavor Agency in Beverly Hills, California. He represents Martin Scorsese, Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Larry David, Michael Moore, Jude Law, Matt Damon, Vin Diesel, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Mark Wahlberg, among others. His stature in the industry has prompted various homages and parodies over the years, including Bob Odenkirk's character, Stevie Grant, on The Larry Sanders Show, and Ari Gold, played by Jeremy Piven on the HBO television show Entourage.
Raised in suburban Wilmette, Illinois, outside Chicago, Emanuel is the brother of U.S. Congressman and White House Chief of Staff-designate Rahm Emanuel, NIH bioethicist Ezekiel J. Emanuel and adopted sister Shoshana Emanuel. His father, the Jerusalem-born Dr. Benjamin M. Emanuel is a pediatrician, who was active in the Irgun, a Zionist paramilitary organization. His mother, Martha Emanuel (née Smulevitz), was a civil rights activist, and the one-time owner of a Chicago-area rock and roll club. As a child, Ari was diagnosed as both hyperactive and dyslexic, and his mother spent hours helping him to learn to read.

......"Ari has either one brother and no sisters or "two brothers and a whore of a sister," including a sister Elaine who lives in Tenafly, New Jersey. Ari Gold is from Chicago."
"Ari's character is based on the real-life Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel, who broke away from mega-agency ICM to form the Endeavor Talent Agency, which represents such stars as Vin Diesel and Larry David, both of whom are represented on the show by the fictional Ari Gold. Likewise, both Emanuel and Gold represent series producer, Mark Wahlberg, upon whose experiences in Hollywood the series is loosely based. Ari Emanuel also once represented Jeremy Piven himself, and in an interview on the special features of the season 2 DVD, Entourage creator Doug Ellin says that the real life Ari demanded the part be cast to Piven and wouldn't accept anyone else to play him. Real-life "Ari Gold" produced the CD of one of Adrian Grenier's (actor who portrays Vincent Chase) bands, The Honey Brothers, in 2003."
