Liam Neeson will be in the Entourage movie that comes out next year. In one scene, Liam Neeson drives a Bentley continental GT and lines up next to Jeremy Piven’s character Ari Gold in a Ferrari 458 Italia.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is the perfect car for Jeremy Piven’s character Ari Gold. It’s fast, loud, and a very obvious status symbol. Whenever I see someone driving a new Ferrari it reminds me of a scene from Gone In 60 Seconds between the main character Memphis and a Ferrari salesman.
Memphis: “I’ve been in L.A. for three months now. I have money, I have taste. But I’m not on anybody’s "A" list, and Saturday night is the loneliest night for the week for me.”
Roger the Car Salesman: “Well, a Ferrari would certainly change that.”
Memphis: “Perhaps, Mmmm. But, you know, this is the one. Yes, yes yes… I saw three of these parked outside the local Starbucks this morning, which tells me only one thing. There’s too many self-Indulgent wieners in this city with too much bloody money! Now, if I was driving a 1967 275 GTB four-cam…”
Roger the Car Salesman: “You would not be a self-indulgent wiener, sir… You’d be a connoisseur.”
Of course Jeremy Piven isn’t a jerk like his Entourage character, so he doesn’t drive the car of a self indulgent wiener. Instead he drives a restored classic Ford Bronco.
