Porn Star Sasha Grey Debuts On “Entourage,” Dirty Jokes Ensue

Last night, porn star Sasha Grey made her premiere on “Entourage,” playing herself as the sort-of girlfriend of Vincent Chase played by Adrian Grenier. Presumably, Grey was brought on the show to “spice things up” a bit. The show’s neither as funny, interesting, nor innovative as it used to be, so someone must have decided “porn star!” was the answer. How was Grey? Not half-bad. If that sounds like damning with faint praise, it is. After all, she’s playing herself. How hard could that be? She plays pretty much the same type of character that she played in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Girlfriend Experience,” a cold, vacant, distant sex worker who peers out at the world through glazed-over eyes and reveals nothing. She’s a little warmer, a little funner in this go-round, but basically it’s the same shtick. It leaves you wondering whether Grey is acting at all — or just, you know, remote.

In any case, things start off with Vince meeting Grey at a night club. The two hit it off, and, oh my gosh, the porn star has a brain! References to Oscar Wilde and Jean-Luc Godard follow. While one can’t criticize the show for showing Grey as the (seemingly, at least) thinking individual she really is, her presence prompts one long protracted anal sex joke among Vince’s peers. (Grey is known for her anal scenes in porn movies, in case you didn’t get the memo.)

The boys — Drama, Turtle, and E — respond to Grey the same way you’d imagine what would happen if you brought up the subject of anal sex to a group of 15-year-old boys: a lot of tittering, Drama observes, “Vagina’s my third favorite hole,” and E is inspired to attempt performing the act with fiance Sloan. Suffice to say, it doesn’t, er, end well. “I like your vagina,” E confesses. “Is that so wrong?” Uh, no.

Ultimately, Grey’s character and porn star status prove to be one more piece of evidence that Vince is spiraling out of control. His back injured after a stunt gone wrong, he starts popping Vicodin, knocking back Tequila shots, and, well, then there’s the matter of that porn star on his arm. “Entourage” can’t quite decide whether it wants to show having a porn star as a girlfriend is a good thing or a bad thing. It’s too soon to tell, but Grey will return in future episodes. For now it looks like hooking up with the star of “Anal Acrobats,” at least in Hollywood’s eyes, may not do you any favors.
