Sasha Grey bound for recurring Entourage role
Story by Jack Foley
PORN star Sasha Grey is to have a recurring role on Entourage, according to US publication Entertainment Weekly.
The adult entertainment star will play herself and will meet Adrian Grenier’s Vince in a bar and become his long-term girlfriend.
The storyline has been inspired by Charlie Sheen’s relationship with porn actress Ginger Lynn in the late ’90s.
If the idea of a porn star entering mainstream TV seems an odd casting choice, then consider that Grey has already won critical acclaim for her performance in Steven Soderbergh indie hit, The Girlfriend Experience and clearly can act.
Indeed, it was her performance in that film – at Soderbergh’s request – that prompted Entourage creator Doug Ellin to offer her the part.
He told EW: “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.”
