Storyline

Things appear to be back to normal. While the boys wait at a coffee shop for a meeting with Ari, they all give Eric a hard time about leaving Emily a drunken message the night before. Drama is in good spirits because he has some money to burn after getting residuals from his brief stint on "Pacific Blue". Ari has arranged a "meet & greet" with the director of "Queens Boulevard", so the group heads to the infamous Chateau Marmont. The outcome of the meeting is hazy: Vince likes Billy, but Eric is getting a bad feeling, and they walk away with a script that he has made revisions to. The revision that causes the most uproar begins to cause some tension among the ranks. Shauna lets Eric know that Vince's sex symbol status could be on the line if he chooses to go forward with this movie. Eric makes a secret phone call to Ari to express his concern. After hearing some reassuring wisdom, the boys screen Billy's previous film, which was a huge hit at Sundance. Amazingly, they all like it. The... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When Billy Walsh discusses filming Vince in a homo-erotic scene in "Queens Blvd.", this was loosely based on Mark Wahlberg's experiences of working with Paul Thomas Anderson during the filming of sexual scenes in Boogie Nights (1997), Wahlberg's breakthrough role. See more »

Goofs

In the scene when Billy, E. and Vince are having coffee pool side, when Billy says "I'd bet you'd like to see Vince do a studio movie E.", Billy picks up his cup of coffee. In the next shot, angled behind Billy, the cup is still on the table. See more »

Billy Walsh
31 July 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This is, in many ways, the Entourage episode that defines the rest of the series, as this is when the show diverts from generic satirical stabs at all things movie-related (reviews, talk shows, weed etc.) and focuses on Vince's career - with some satirical stabs in between.

Having convinced Ari that Queens Boulevard is the film Vince wants to do, the gang now has to meet the prospective director of the project, a Sundance hotshot named Billy Walsh (Rhys Coiro). Vincent is immediately attracted to Walsh's edgy, original personality, while Eric is a little more skeptical, especially after discovering the dude has rewritten parts of the script and inserted a homo-erotic sex scene involving Vince. In the meantime, Ari tries to be on a normal vacation with his wife (Perrey Reeves), only to have work constantly interfering, and Eric also has to deal with the drunken phone message he left on Kristen's machine thinking it was Emily.

The best thing about The Scene is the introduction of Walsh: uncompromising, ambitious and occasionally flat-out crazy - the kind of character everyone loves to watch in a Hollywood-related series. Coiro, a complete unknown before landing the meaty role, conveys the right mix of insanity and inspired determination, giving a performance that's almost strong enough to rival Jeremy Piven's. Speaking of which, for once Ari doesn't land the best line of the episode (although the revelation that he uses Viagra is ace as usual); no, that honor would go to Drama's philosophical take on Vince's dilemma regarding the gay scene: "I'd take it in the ass for an Oscar!". Unmissable
