Lol What the Hell Happened to Vincent Chase?

http://www.manic-expression.com/apps...-vincent-chase

Quote:
Vincent Chase was Aquaman at the start of his career. He starred in an independent movie called Queens Boulevard that won the Grand Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival. Unfortunately it seems like nowadays his personal life has gotten in the way of his career. What the hell happened?

Vincent Chase grew up in Queens, New York. He grew up very poor and his father was an alcoholic who barely spent any time with his family. He also grew up with his brother, Johnny Chase, an actor best known for playing Tarvold in Viking Quest and doing guest spots in various TV shows like Full House and even Cop Rock! Vince moved to Los Angeles when he was 24. He started his career playing a bimbo in the movie, Traveller.

He also starred in commercials for Vicks and Mentos. His agent, Ari Gold, discovered him while watching the Mentos commercial and started representing him. The first gig he got him was an episode of JAG. Around that time, he also had a small part in A Walk to Remember. A Walk to Remember got terrible reviews but did well in the box office and started Mandy Mooreís acting career. However Vinceís role was so small that it didnít affect his career in any way. But it did lead him to start dating Mandy Moore.

And his next movie would help his career! In 2004, he starred in the crime thriller Head On with Jessica Alba. The movie did surprisingly well with critics and was a box office hit. It also led him to be offered the lead in the action movie Matterhorn but he turned it down and he instead followed it up with Queens Boulevard. Queens Boulevard was an independent film about a man running from the law in Queens, New York. The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and got great reviews from critics and won the Grand Jury Award. It also led him to get into his next movie, Aquaman.

After the producers of Aquaman saw Queens Boulevard, they offered him the title role. At first he turned it down because he didnít want to play a superhero but ended up doing the film to pay for his new house. He also reunited with his Walk to Remember co-star and girlfriend Mandy Moore for the film. Aquaman was a huge success, gaining positive reviews from critics and it made $116 million on opening weekend alone, breaking Spider Manís record for the highest opening weekend for a superhero film.

However, Vince wanted to do Medellin next, a movie based on the life of Pablo Escabar. However, filming was set to start around the same time Aquaman 2 was filming so Ari tried to make sure they were able to do both movies at once. Unfortunately, the head of Warner Brothers went back on the promise and made sure Aquaman 2 kept the original release date. Because they werenít able to come to a deal, Vince ended up dropping out of Aquaman 2 and was replaced with Jake Gyllenhall. To make matters even worse, Benicio Del Toro got the role of Pablo Escabar!

Then things got even worse! He was offered the role of Joey Ramone in the biopic I Wanna Be Sedated. But, seeing as the rights to the movie ended up going to Warner Brothers, who still held a grudge against him, he ended up not getting the role. And things got even worse from there! After I Wanna Be Sedated didnít work out, he was offered a role in Sam Mendesís The Glimpses of the Moon.


But when he heard that Del Toro dropped out of Medellin, he ended up dropping out of Glimpses of the Moon and took the role of Pablo Escabar. He was only able to play the lead role at the last minute when he ended up buying the script after the original producer left. He had to sell his home to get funding to make the project. He also ended up hiring his Queens Boulevard director, Billy Walsh, to direct the film.

It ended up being sold to The Cannes Film Festival and received a lot of hype after the trailer. The hype was so great that Vince and Walsh ended up being offered to film an adaptation of the novel, Lost in the Clouds. However, they ended up deciding to film Walshís passion project, Silo, instead. Unfortunately, the finished product ended up getting terrible reviews and it was released straight to DVD. The film was such a failure that it lead Walsh to scrap Silo and Vince temporarily retired after making the movie. He even ended up passing on the movie, Danger Beach. But Vince ended up having a change of heart and returned to acting after realizing that he canít go out with a bomb.

He tried to get a part in Edward Nortonís unfinished project, Smoke Jumpers, however many things ended up going wrong yet again! First, he wanted to play the lead role but no studio wanted Vince to be the lead and he ended up having to take on a supporting role. Then Alan Gray bought the script and, because Vince still had a feud with Warners, they wanted him out of the project! However he did get back into the project but the way it happened was kind of messed up. Dana Gordon, a friend of his agent Ariís, ended up becoming the new studio head when Alan Gray died from a heart attack and, because she was the new head, she got him back into the movie. Thatís right, someone had to die for Vince to get into the movie! And whatís worse is that Vince ended up getting kicked out of the movie anyway because he didnít get along with Verner Vollstedt, the director, and ended up getting into many arguments with him! Seeing as they hated each other very much, Verner ended up firing Vince off the set of the movie! As if that wasnít enough, Verner also ended up getting into an argument with Ari, his manager, Eric, and John Ellis, the chairman of Warner Brothers, which not only got Vince fired from the movie but caused the movie to get canceled altogether! 


It seemed like Vince was, once again, finished. Thankfully for him, though, Gus Van Sant saw some footage from Smoke Jumpers and convinced Martin Scorsese to hire him as Nick Calloway in his Great Gatsby re-imagining, Gatsby. The movie got good reviews and did well at the box office.

It seemed like, once again, Vince was back on top! Was he able to learn from his mistakes and become more responsible with his career? Well, before, we talk about that, we should mention that he did two movies.

The first was Frank Darabontís Ferrari, a biopic about the life of race car driver, Enzo Ferrari. The movie opened up to decent reviews and did well at the box office.

He also voiced Yodog in the animated movie Hip Hop Doggies. He ended up doing the voice when the production of Ferrari got delayed. It got mixed-to-negative reviews but had a modest success at the box office.

It seemed like life was finally going good for Vince. Then Takeover happened. While filming Takoever, Vince almost died on set while filming an action scene. After that day, he started doing cocaine and dating porn star Sasha Grey. His newfound cocaine addiction was heavily publicized and it eventually led him to get in a fight with Eminem at a party. When he was beaten up by Eminem, he ended up going to the hospital and, while the officers were examining the crime scene, they found that he was indeed doing cocaine and he ended up being sentenced to rehab for 90 days. Heís still doing his sentence and it is hard to know whether or not heíll get back on top.

So what the hell happened? While Vince is a talented actor, his personality pretty much got in the way of him becoming a big star-he kept breaking off connections because of his ego and it pretty much led many studios not wanting to cast him as a result. Also, when it did seem like he was finally going to have a comeback, he ended up having a cocaine addiction that pretty much led him back to where he was in the first place. If he keeps up this behavior then he probably will never have the comeback he and his agency so wants for him to have. Hopefully, though, heíll finally learn from his mistakes and get his career back on track.
