[IMG:L]10:02: Drama is being dramatic about Vince’s first day of shooting Smokejumpers
, as evidenced by his flipping Turtle’s mattress over, which is hilarious. Less hilarious: Drama repeatedly referring to Vince as ‘Baby bro.’
10:03: Vince has first-day jitters about Smokejumpers
(Vince gets nervous?!). Luckily there’s Powerade on hand to calm him down.
10:06: Good Will Hunting
actor Stellan Skarsgard
is playing Verner, the somewhat maniacal director of Smokejumpers
. Yet another solid bit of Entourage
10:07: Jason Patric
, the lead actor in Smokejumpers
, is stealing Vince’s lines. On an unrelated note, this episode features some damn good cinematography.
10:09: Ari reluctantly meets his old friend and mentor Andrew Klein, and … it's Lumbergh from Office Space
! (OK, his real name is Gary Cole
, and he’s been in almost 100 combined movies and TV shows.) Klein asks Ari for a cool half-a-million-dollar loan. Ouch.
is doing a great send-up of his real-life, ultra-intense reputation.
10:15: Turtle exacts revenge on Patric
by stealing his seatback. That’s what happens when you steal lines!
10:18: Ari wants to buy Klein’s company to help his old buddy out of a financial bind, which marks his second straight benevolent episode.
10:19: After Turtle stole Patric
’s seatback, Drama gets revenge by using his trailer bathroom in a way that is not very gentlemanly. Or sanitary. Or pleasing to the smell.
10:22: Ari and Andrew reminisce about the one that got away: Brad Pitt
, pre-Thelma and Louise
10:24: Quote of the night (Ari to Andrew): “That head of hair is too good for the Valley.” And on that compliment, Andrew agrees to let Ari buy his literary agency.
10:25: But the episode’s ‘Oh, sh*t’ phone call negates that transaction, when Barbara (Beverly D'Angelo
) doesn’t approve the deal.
10:26: Drama exacts revenge on Patric
a second time by wiping barbeque sauce on the back of his shirt. Score!
10:27: The last straw for Vince comes when Patric
steals dessert from Turtle. Vince mans up and confronts him about being a line ‘kleptomaniac,’ only to learn that it was all Verner’s doing.
10:28: Outkast’s "Da Art of Storytellin’ (Part II)" plays us to and through the closing credits. Even if the episodes themselves haven’t been great this season, the songs sure have!
10:29: Previews for next week: Uh-oh, Seth Green
’s back and still yappin' about Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui
), who’s also back; confusion continues on the set of Smokejumpers
, just as it does at Ari’s office with the Andrew Klein saga.
