Jeremy Piven is getting his ass sued by the producers of “Speed-the-Plow,” according to the AP:
They have filed a grievance with Actors’ Equity Association, the stage actors’ union, against Jeremy Piven for abruptly leaving the Broadway revival last month.
Piven quit the David Mamet comedy less than two months after it opened to favorable reviews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. The actor’s doctor said Piven was unable perform because of high levels of mercury in his system, possibly caused by eating large amounts of raw fish.
I guess they didn’t believe his performance for Diane Sawyer. Or they’re just doing it for the halibut. Ha cha cha cha! I’m drowning myself in the tub now.
