Entourage episode two includes the agent, Ari, reading the script of Aquaman to Vince... "Fade in: Arthur Curry, AKA Aquaman, the heir to the throne of Poseidon is being placed gently on a barrier reef by his father...[other dialogue] Andrew Kevin Walker wrote it... [other dialogue] As Arthur's father stares into his son's eyes, he pours the Serum X..."

In episode three, Vince is getting convinced, particularly as he needs to buy a home. When Vince goes into the interview with Warner execs, he explains that he doesn't want to play a superhero, to which they respond: "We're not talking about making a comic book fluff movie here" "No, we want this to be a darker, grittier film" "Remember, this is the studio that did Batman." *giggle*

Then they bring in the Aquaman suit.

Vince's response? "No way am I going to be on a 70 foot screen looking like an underwater Elton John!" Um, I am totally in agreement with Vince on that one. That is one ugly suit. I wouldn't wear anything like it, and I'm an Aquaman fan. But then, Vince doesn't actually fit the role of Aquaman, either...

Interestingly, at the end of the episode, Vince admits he liked the script. And then Ari drops the bomb on him: Warners really liked him, and they want to do back-to-back Aquaman movies, for a lot of money. Enough to get the dream home Vince and his entourage want. So Vince asks "Can you get me suit approval?" And then he agrees.

Episode One.
