* ThreeWaySex

to:

* ThreeWaySexThreeWaySex: In one episode, Turtle and Drama double-team the same girl. In another episode, E has a three-way with Sloane and one of her girlfriends (although E was not allowed to touch the other woman, which makes for an awkward situation when he wakes up spooning with her). It's also heavily implied that there have been multiple occasions where Vince had sex with two girls at the same time.

** Some of the fake movies are clearly based on real ones. ''Aquaman'' is clearly based on how ''Film/SpiderMan'' almost went (James Cameron was attached to direct it for ages) and ''Aquaman 2'' is based on how ''Film/SpiderMan2'' almost went (Creator/TobeyMaguire came close to dropping out and Creator/JakeGyllenhaall was asked to replace him if that happened). ''Medellin'' is based on ''Filmn/{{Gigli}}'' (unpronouncable title, career-derailing movie) and ''Film/SouthlandTales'' (acclaimed indie director's follow-up that premieres at Cannes to mass walkouts and declared an overlong, self-indulgent, incomprehensible disaster, and ends up barely getting released).

** Vincent. When the studio wants him for Aquaman 2 and he wants to do Medellin, the studio tells him he can't do both due to time constraints - but they actually don't want their golden boy to be seen as a drug kingpin.

* Foreshadowing: At the premiere of ''Queens Boulevard'' the director claims "This is my fucking ''[[Film/TheDeerHunter Deer Hunter]]''". And it's a big critical hit. But after he made ''Film/TheDeerHunter'', Michael Cimino's career [[HeavensGate didn't go so well]].

** In one of the few times that a Take That wasn't by Ari, Vince was ''not'' happy that James Cameron was not returning to direct ''Aquaman 2'', but the studio was courting Michael Bay for the role.

* '''Lloyd Lee''' (played by Rex Lee) - Ari's long-suffering assistant. Flamboyantly gay, he takes much abuse from his boss, but is extremely competent--he's lasted the longest out of any assistant Ari's had by ''far''. A Sarah Lawrence grad, he helps to humanize Ari upon occasion.
* '''Shauna Roberts''' (played by Debi Mazar) - Vince's publicist, just as foul-mouthed and entertaining as Ari. Her character was originally intended to break up the boys club of the main cast, but has faded over the later seasons, with Mrs. Ari taking up the role.
* '''Mrs. Ari''' (played by Perrey Reeves) - Ari's long-suffering wife. A trust-fund baby and former actress, she is the only character who seems to be able to go toe-to-toe with Ari. Ari's respect for his wife is obvious by the fact that he frequently insists he has ''never'' cheated on her, despite many opportunities.
* '''Sloan [=McQuiewick=]''' (played by Emmanuelle Chriqui) - E's on again, off again girlfriend who shows up regularly. Understandably, as she is the daughter of another power agent (Ari's former boss) and heavily involved in charity events that Vince occasionally attends.

* '''Vincent Chase''' (played by Adrian Grenier) - A pretty boy with who [[InformedAbility we're told is a decent actor]]. Vince has co-dependency issues and is a notorious womanizer. Never goes anywhere without one of his "boys".
* '''Eric "E" Murphy''' (played by Kevin Connolly) - Vince's best friend since childhood, who takes on the role of his manager (unofficially, then officially). Eric is just about as co-dependent as Vince, but slightly more self-aware. Less of a womanizer, he's more of a serial monogamist.
* '''Johnny "Drama" Chase''' (played by Kevin Dillon) - Vince's older (half)brother, who's been in the acting biz longer, but with not nearly as much success. Goes by "Drama" because well, he's a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin bit of a basket case.]]
* '''Salvatore "Turtle" Assante''' (played by Jerry Ferrara) - Another of Vince's friends from childhood, but often hangs out with Drama. Came to Hollywood to act as Vince's driver, he enjoys being a hanger on with the least amount of guilt out of the three. [[CharacterDevelopment At least for a while.]]
* '''Ari Gold''' (played by Jeremy Piven) - Vince's agent, a foul-mouthed, ruthless businessman, responsible for much of Vince's success. Although his demeanor can be off-putting, he's one of the most popular characters on the show, and has proven time and time again that he truly cares for Vince beyond just his career.
