Channel 514: Everyone hearts Sloan

Posted by MP / April 16, 2007

emmanuelle_chriqui_02_252.jpgHow lucky Montreal is. Truly. Why? Because we have Emmanuelle Chriqui, better known as Entourage's Sloan, on our side. Sure, she grew up in Toronto. Yeah, she's lived in the States for 10 years. So what? She's from Montreal (Moroccan Jewish, if you really want to know, and yes, she speaks French). And that's good enough for me.

Sloan's presence on the show adds some much-needed depth to counterpoint the four meatheads' conniving, whining, self-absorbtion. Also, a recurring female character who isn't a she-witch, a celebrity or Mrs. Ari makes for good cross-over appeal.

Unfortunately, Chriqui's career hasn't been exactly as A-List as the Entourage world. Sure, she's probably got more money than I ever will, and goes to better parties, and has stalker-esque fan sites, but IMDb her and you'll see that the best thing she's been in other than Entourage was Detroit Rock City - which is without a doubt the best movie ever made about the KISS generation. I see she has been on The O.C. and something called Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County, and has a movie coming out later this year called After Sex, but I draw a total blank looking at the rest of her credits. Do I not get out enough? Do I need to move to L.A. to obsessively follow her career ever closer, like that creepy Drew Barrymore date guy?

No, because that's getting into some very weird territory. But I am on Team Sloan.

Does anyone know if there will be a peolpe capacity for this concert? I m thinking of scraping together some cash to fly to Montreal? Arcade Fire is the greatest band, and Montreal the greatest city. It would suck to go the distance to find out there s a capacity.
