The lads are back for a third season of Entourage, about the rise of Vincent Chase — a young A-list movie star — and his childhood friends from Queens, New York City as they navigate the unfamiliar terrain of Hollywood, California.
Vince’s latest movie, Aquaman is the box office’s latest number one. Now it’s brought him the offer that he’s always dreamed of — the starring role in Medellin.
With help from Ari and Eric, Vince puts the heat on the studio to delay Aquaman II so he can film his dream project. They manage to buy a 65-day window, but Medellin director Paul Haggis (as himself) can't imagine chopping his script or trimming the shooting schedule.
Eric comes up with a solution, convincing the director to film part of the script after Aquaman, and everyone's happy. Vince sets up a meeting with the head of Warner Brothers to tell him the good news.
Meanwhile, Ari is still preoccupied with his daughter's budding romance with Max. He undermines his kid client, recommending Max to Penny Marshall (as herself) as the lead for her tween terror film shooting in Kazakhstan.
Turtle requests a meeting with Ari when Saigon starts getting heavy play on the radio and the calls from labels come rolling in.
When Drama calls "shotgun" on Turtle's lunch with Ari, he finally gets Mr. Gold Standard to agree to represent him.
Everyone is in for a surprise, however, when Vince meets with the studio head. He's changed his mind about Medellin – he can't have Aquaman "doing three hours of blow on every multiplex in the country."
Beside himself, Vince demands $20-million to do the sequel. "What'd I miss?" Ari asks when he arrives late for the dinner.
The showdown between Vince and the studio over Aquaman II vs. Medellin intensifies, with Ari popping every vein to bring the two sides together.
Eric lives out one of his own fantasies, and Drama finally gets his lucky Hollywood break.
