Porn star Sasha Grey to play Vince's girlfriend on 'Entourage'

Sasha-GreyImage Credit: Barry Brecheisen/WireImage.comAdult film star Sasha Grey, who got her mainstream break as the lead in Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 film, The Girlfriend Experience, will have a recurring role on the upcoming season of Entourage. According to TV Guide, she’ll play herself and meet Vince (Adrian Grenier) in a bar and become his longterm girlfriend.

“Sasha’s the biggest porn star in the world right now, and when Soderbergh casts her as the lead of his movie, I take notice,” Entourage creator Doug Ellin said. He added that he wouldn’t have pursued the plot point, inspired by Charlie Sheen’s relationship with porn actress Ginger Lynn in the late ’90s, if she’d turned down the role. Also, that the male castmembers of the HBO series gave him their unanimous approval. Shocking!

The first question I had was, can she act? Well, EW’s Owen Gleiberman gave The Girlfriend Experience an A. He described Grey as “not so much a natural actress as a natural-born placid, affectless Barbie doll (imagine Eliot Spitzer consort Ashley Dupré with a touch of Demi Moore).” So, you know, if that’s what you’re going for – and I suspect on Entourage it is — well done. After the jump, watch a clip of Sasha choosing her five favorite films (she does defy expectations while showing more personality than she did during her Tyra interview) and the SFW trailer for the adult film This Ain’t Star Trek XXX. A welcome addition to Entourage?

  • BHM1304

    They should have gone with someone with a little more personality like Kirsten Price or Jesse Jane.

    • mac

      tori black…Uh I mean what is pornography????

      • kramer

        naah…she’s too…how do u say, flat? this being entourage, they need to show some boobies, and i’m sure sasha’s will fit perfectly on screen

      • Sasha

        I’m so excited for this! I wouldn’t mind if Tori Black was in on the action too!

      • Tom Brady

        Ricki Raxxx would have been a better choise.

  • M

    I think a few adult actresses have been on this show mainly in a cameo role, so this is nothing new. She can’t be any worse than these so called reality bozos (hills, kartrashians) passing off their “acting skills”…. At least Sasha wont try to hide her sex tape(s) lol

  • Ramo

    Did NOT expect those film choices! How refreshing that she’s into foreign films and older cinema. Seems like a cool chick.

  • Miss Talk

    Does Adrian have to kiss those lips? Just askin’

    • LOL

      LOL!

    • Earl

      Yes.

  • Jason

    I thought she didn’t want to be typecast, and every actor on this show is pretty much exactly that. All of their outside projects fail. Anyway, it’s a cool move, but she’s being used more of a novelty than anything else very much like Soderbergh now admits to doing with her for GFE.

    Face it, if she’s a guy in porn with an eclectic taste in music and movies, nobody would care. Guys are just pervy and want to have her around for the aforementioned novelty factor. I was thinking she’d actually try going against type, but I suppose that doesn’t pay the bills quite as well.

  • Biff

    I’m sure Adrian won’t mind kissing those lips.

  • Nathan

    Maybe there’s a reason to watch this tired show after all.

  • Ivan

    Last season sucked, so I dont think casting her can do any harm…

  • Dysthymia83

    Belladonna was surprisingly decent in “Pirates 2: Stagnetti’s Revenge” and has worked with James Gunn in his “Pg-Porn” shorts, so I would have gone with her if it’s about female porn stars with acting chops.

    • M

      Sasha did a “PG Porn” episode as well, as did Bree Olsen… they were fairly funny

  • Ryan

    A better choice would have been: Alektra Blue, Rachel Roxxx, Sara Sloane, Riley Steele, or Madison Ivy. Of course I don’t know who any of these starlets are but my friend suggested them.

  • Joe from Astoria

    hey, how about…GIANNA MICHAELS!

    • Brett

      Gianna Michaels would have towered over Grenier.

      • Tom Brady

        Memphis Monroe would have been SUBLIME

    • Dustin

      Those tits are amazing! And man…can that girl suck a…act.

  • Chappel

    I give the producers credit for knowing their audience and what they want.

  • David

    NO. But again, she has a helluva an agent. They’re sure pushing her. No one went to see the Girlfriend Experience. Other porn stars have been on Entourage. No one is going to watch for her. Her constant, vacant, dead eyes are disturbing. But I’m sure someone else will try to push her into another mainstream show or movie no one’s going to see.

    • Brett

      Nobody has gone from appearing on “Entourage” to anything else. The only person to appear on “Entourage” who went on to have any kind of success was some douche named James Cameron.

  • Brett

    Okay – after watching her “Five Favorite Films” performance – I think this woman has more personality than any porn star who has attempted a mainstream crossover except perhaps Ron Jeremy. She’s DEFINITELY more interesting to listen to than Jenna Jameson or Ginger Lynn ever were.
