"Entourage" star Jeremy Piven is looking for an Irish wife!

Piven - who plays mega agent Ari Gold in the hit HBO show - says he's fed up being single.

"Maybe I should go to Ireland and see if I can do better away from Hollywood," he says.

"Don't get me wrong," he says, "there are lots of beautiful girls in LA and it's not difficult to meet them, but I've just never met one I wanted to settle down with."

Piven, 44, says he wants to settle down and have a family but just can't find the right woman.,

"I've got a great life, I love the work I do, but I've been single for a while now and I would really love to meet someone and get married," he says.

In addition, Piven maintains that he's not nearly as nasty as his TV character.

"People are always disappointed when they meet me," he says, "because I'm not ripping off someone's head or tearing their skin off to make ponchos out of it.

"They address me as an aggressor. There's a lot of barking, a lot of slapping," he said.

As for the on-set barking, Piven reckons this is the best series yet of the hit show.

"I have this buddy who I convinced everyone to let be an agent of my agency and he's going to screw everything up to the point where you won't believe what happens."
