The career of mega-star actor Vincent Chase can be traced back to a single word: “Mentos.” Mega-agent turned studio head Ari Gold saw the fresh-faced young Queens actor in a commercial and instantly knew he’d be a star. Fast-forward 15 years and Chase, who has become one of the most notorious, controversial and famous actors in the world, is starring and directing in the first film Gold has put together as studio head. Hyde is a modern day, cyber retelling of the Jekyll and Hyde story that has gone way over budget for the first time director and threatened the career not only of Gold, but Chase as well.

We’ll tell you, going from his first major studio film Head On, to his Sundance darling Queens Boulevard, his James Cameron mega-hit Aquaman, moving into a producer role for Medellin, a Martin Scorsese driven-comeback in Gatsby and so much more. Join us for the insider ride through the entire Hollywood career of mega-star turned first time director Vincent Chase. Read More »
