I love to hate Ari Gold, the fast-talking disrespectful Hollywood power agent starring on HBO's "Entourage." He treats his employees terribly, especially his loyal assistant Lloyd.
Now HBO has given us a chance to interact with Ari head-on. On www.hbo.com, visitors have a chance to do a job interview with the one-and-only master of the universe.
Lloyd opens the office door for you, urging you not to be nervous. "Just picture him in a red thong, like I do."
Then Ari will hit you with a series of rapid-fire questions like "What do you want to say to the master?" and "What makes you so special?"
You have a chance to speak and then he responds.
Alas, I wasn't very impressive. Mr. Gold told me if I see him around town, just wave. Don't come over. I'm crushed.
On the same website, the actor who plays Lloyd (Rex Lee), answers questions about why Lloyd puts up with it all. It's a good read.
