As far as numbers go, Vince = DiCaprio seeing as Titanic was the highest grossing movie ever.
I think you're misunderstanding the entire point of the show. It's portraying how you can be very talented, and have bad luck, and end up in the shitter-or you could make it huge with no talent-it's trying to show that anything can happen in that industry. If you think they show is saying that Vince is a terrible actor, you're not watching.
There are people here who simply hate the show, and any positive ending would have been a "bad one" because they don't seem to get the show.
Are you kidding? When every director turns you down, when you're box office poison, you get horrible reviews, your friends and your family call you out for terrible acting in what was meant to be your magnum opus, you're a terrible actor. He was beyond horrible in Medellin, everyone said so. Titanic and a fucking super hero movie are two different things. Superhero movies are not meant to showcase good acting or any real artistic value. To compare vincent chase to DiCaprio shows a pretty lack of knowledge of what Leo has done in his earlier career on your part. Vince has gotten horrible reviews, including his first major movie role.
Also, it has been hinted at many times that part of the whole premise behind the show is that Chase is a mediocre actor who happens to look and act like a movie star. Ari Gold said it himself, and if you look at the client list of Ari Emmanuel, the real guy, he knows about actors. For the most part, Scorsese and Gus van Sant are not the type of directors that would normally be interested in someone like Vinny Chase, if you know anything at all about their catalogues.
I don't know anyone who knows anything who didn't think the Scorsese angle was absolutely retarded. Maybe Michael Berg or Spielberg, but not Scorsese.
