    Man, let's not take it too seriously. It's not a super-accurate representation of the real world. It's just fun.

    The show would've been much more inetersting had he stayed in Queens and start auditioning for TV work or something else. Getting show back to LA back to big movies is going to kill it. How many times can you see Entourage strolling past sports cars and chicks in mini skirts.
    Yawn.

    Don't think that Scorsese will shoot his "modern Great Gatsby set in the Upper West Side" in LA... Next season might be partly set in NYC

    Yea the problem is that it wouldn't really be entourage anymore. TV actors don't have nearly the luster and fame of film stars. It would also effectively kill his major film career.

    I really hope some of next season is set in NYC and they show filming of The Great Gatsby. I'm worried they'll skip over most of it and start off with the moving already being shot. Also will Gary Cole be frequenting the show or was that just for those 2 episodes?

    You seem to not have a brain. It has nothing to do with what I think of Vince. It's a TV show, I really don't care. However, it is a show that is billed as being a realistic representation of hollywood. Head On was a cheesy action film in which Vince's acting was completely and utterly panned. Then in Medeillin, where they had 100% artistic license and control, he was a laughable disaster. A total and complete catastrophe. Everyone including his friends and family panned him. Remember how mad Ari got when E let him see the reviews from Head On? Again, you are comparing him to DiCaprio when they couldn't be more different. DiCaprio established himself as a serious, noteworthy actor LONG before Titanic. Ever watch This Boy's Life (where he stars opposite fucking Robert DeNiro) or What's Eating Gilbert Grape (a movie that includes Johnny Depp), then how about Marvin's Room where he works with Merryl Streep, Robert DeNiro and Diane Keaton? All of this, including Basketball Diaries happened BEFORE Titanic.

    Stop making the comparison, no one else sees it that way. Aquaman is a shitty blockbuster that sells huge. Scorsese doesn't care about that, and Van Sant certainly doesn't. If they pick him it's on the strength of these alleged scenes. Do you still not understand that this is not realistic at all? Yes, you can argue that both of them suddenly love him based on some dailies from Smoke Jumpers, but to say that Scorsese is interested in him based on a cheesy super hero movie is really quite stupid. In the case of DiCaprio, Scorsese had more than a few films in which DiCaprio acted with legends and did a very good job. In any case, in observing Scorsese's entire career, not to mention Van Sant, neither would ever get near someone like Vincent Chase who is basically a facsimile of Colin Farell (who Ari Gold basically compares him to). So again, perhaps they did like his acting, but it's still 100% unrealistic and would never, ever happen. That being said i realize it's a TV show and will continue watching. I find it a great show to watch, it's fun and it entertains me. Still, I think they shit the bed with that ending.


    This pretty much confirms you still can't separate real life and this show from one another.

    No, it confirms like everyone else thinks, that a show that is billed on its reality (notice how most of the famous people in the show play themselves in real life) just shit the bed? Read everything that's been written about it. They always wanted to make it a fun, realistic portrayal of Hollywood. Well, that ending to anyone who is involved in entertainment, or actually really, anyone who reads Variety once every 5 years with half a brain could tell you, was bullshit. Again, many of the famous people are not made up, they come on the show with their real life reputations and their real life personas, so the fictional parts of the show should fit those.

    I get your point - which begs the question: why did Marty agree to participate in this story if it's so out of line with what he would do in real life? [​IMG]

    It was a favor to Mark Wahlberg, who as you know was in Departed.

    That's your answer? [​IMG]

    I didn't ask why he agreed to be in Entourage. I asked why you think he agreed on to play this part in this specific story, which we assume may also spill over to next season. We both know that Marty has enough clout to twist a plot if he finds it completely out of line, right?

    Food for thought...

    Not really, it's a tiny little cameo which might amount to 10-20 lines of dialogue in the next season. For him it's a little fun I'm guessing. Would the same ever happen in real life, if it was his ass on the line making a movie with a studio to answer to and his own creative standards? Fuck no.

    Again, you're answering a different question (why did he agree to appear on Entourage?) but that's fine. I just wanted to instill a little bit of doubt in your absolute certainty that it was an impossible story - not sure that I succeeded...

    No, I absolutely see what you're getting at. But again I believe he was in it for a bit of fun, nothing more, and I'd be surprised if he knew the plot. Remember, he knows the show is about Mark, so to him it's somewhat plausible.

    I really don't want to watch a story of an actor going broke and never getting work.

    Though the show has been getting on my nerves lately (not because of its unrealism but because the characters' stagnation) I still understand it's supposed to be primarily fun.

    Food for thought (for myself and others), the show could no longer be called Entourage if Vince doesn't have his crew with him. Perhaps they should consider wrapping things up?

    y wouldn't Vince have his crew with him anymore? it all wrapped up with the boys back in LA, E back as Vinnie's manager, ready to hit the ground running with this new project.

    I think even as Drama, E and recently Sal start to get their own things going, the gang will always be together even if they aren't say living together anymore. For a period E was living with Sloan (aka. future wifey) and drama in his condo but boys still hung out all the time
