Entourage Greets Sasha Grey

Sasha Grey Porn Star on EntourageLast night’s episode of the hit HBO series Entourage introduced none other than our favorite teddy-bear humping porn star, Sasha Grey. Sasha is playing herself and seeing the golden boy, Vince Chase.

Watching this episode, I spent a lot of time wishing I did not know Sasha for her porn persona originally. Something about seeing her as the innocent half of an encounter creates a glitch in my porn mind. Not to mention the fact that her character was introduced in the most abrupt fashion possible. Most women in the Entourage series come and go like the wind, so seemless character introduction is pointless. Grey‘s character is supposedly a recurrent girlfriend of Vince’s, and that alone makes her brainless entrance a poor writing decision in my mind.

The way other characters were written in around her entrance was rather intelligent. Sasha was portrayed as somewhat of an exhibitionist, but altogether sweet and innocent. Her interactions with Vince are honest and playful in both private and public settings. The rest of the cast on the other hand, seemed to cleverly divert the preconception of Sasha‘s dirty porn career by getting into awkward sexual situations. Ari Gold and his wife enjoyed a comical “angry sex” disagreement where Mrs. Gold refused to sleep with Ari while he was disgruntled over work. This included an extremely soft-core scene in which the audience witnesses Ari having sex with his wife. Eric and Sloan also get into the act by having a discussion about anal sex. Sloan becomes worried about Eric’s fascination, and decides to make sure she is the one he experiences it with. This comedic backdoor entry was also shown on screen in an extreme soft-core fashion.

The use of sex impressed me. I’m not entirely sure how Entourage‘s mainstream audience felt about Sasha Grey before watching the episode, but I believe the writers succeeded in carving her a faux innocence amongst the main cast for the time being. If Sasha’s later place in the Entourage story relies on her being seen as innocent and ultimately coy, I may end up eating my words concerning her entrance. We can only hope and watch.

One of our favorite Adult stars and budding cross-over talents, Sasha Grey, will be appearing on the smash hit HBO series Entourage August 1st.

Sasha made her first cross-over move last year in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience. A drama set in the days leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, and centered on a high-end Manhattan call girl meeting the challenges of her boyfriend, her clients, and her work.

In the Entourage story arc, Sasha Grey will be playing herself. The golden boy himself, Vincent Chase, picks up Sasha at a bar and reportedly is not a fan of her chosen profession. Vince is said to try keeping her from shooting Adult content, and even brings her to a meeting with the legendary Stan Lee in a later episode. Sasha is rumored to be a part of the Entourage story line into the next, and final, season of the show.

Entourage creator Doug Ellin comments on Sasha Grey‘s addition to the cast, “I think Sasha’s going to have a very successful transition. Sasha’s the biggest porn star in the world right now. I wouldn’t have done this storyline if Sasha passed. Luckily she was okay with doing it.” - AVN

As a fan of the HBO blockbuster series, this makes for an interesting twist at this point in the show for me. Vincent Chase has gone from the boyish hippie star child to a much more wild and edgy character since performing his own car stunt against Ari Gold’s wishes. As a reborn thrill seeker, Vince’s antics with Sasha Grey have a lot of potential. I’m looking forward to seeing Sasha seduce Aquaman and make another positive female influence on Turtle, Drama, and Eric.
