  • Vince Chase is a sexy young actor whose career is on the rise. To share the fun of his ride to the top of Hollywood and keep him grounded, Vince looks to Eric, Drama and Turtle, his childhood buddies from Queens. Together, they'll navigate the highs and lows of Hollywood's fast lane, where the stakes are higher, and the money and temptations greater, than ever before. But that certainly will not stop them from having fun the whole way through.Adrian Grenier ("The Devil Wears Prada", "Drive Me Crazy") stars as Vince, an actor on the verge of stardom. Kevin Connolly ("Antwone Fisher," "John Q") plays Eric, Vince's closest confidant who's learning the rules of the business as he tries to help Vince make the right choices and keep his goals aimed high. Kevin Dillon ("The Doors," "Platoon") plays Vince's half-brother Johnny Drama, whose own acting aspirations have been eclipsed by Vince's success, but that doesn't stop Johnny from constantly looking for work and going to auditions. Jerry Ferrara ("Grounded for Life," "Leap of Faith") plays Turtle, the least experienced of the group who is always up for a good time. Jeremy Piven ("Old School," "The Larry Sanders Show") plays Ari, Vince's aggressive, high-powered agent, who clashes with Eric over his client's decisions.Theme Song:"Superhero" by Jane's Addictionmoreless

    Trivia (90)

    • It is mentioned that Drama and Vince are only half-brothers, even though they have the same mom (episode 301, "Aquamom") and they share the same last name.

    • At the beginning of the scene where Eric kicks the soccer ball and hits the gardener, the ball is clearly seen in the opening shot sitting on the net. Then before Eric kicks it, it is directly to the left of the net.

    • Goof When Ari and Eric are having lunch at Koi, Eric is pouring soy sauce onto his lunch. Between scenes the bottle goes from being on the table to him pouring.

    • The car used in the opening credits is a mid-1960's Lincoln towncar convertible with suicide doors.

    • This was the first episode featuring Ari's famous 'Lets Hug It Out Bitch' quote.

    • In the suit store, Shauna slams Turtle about getting on a talk show, then in response to Drama laughing says "What are you laughing about? We'll get you on Montel with Don Swayze, Joey Travolta and the other retarded star siblings.". This is ironic because Drama is a "star sibling" to Vince and off-camera Kevin Dillon is a "star sibling" to his much more famous brother Matt.
