Yay For Mercury

You would think the headline would be a post about Mercury, the forgotten planet. Well I guess that really isn't fair because at least it is still a planet. Poor Pluto out there is now just a big ass rock. I guess scientists really don't have any feelings. Didn't they read The Alchemist? Pluto has feelings just like the rest of us.

Anyway, it turns out that the other two members of the play in which Jeremy Piven was starring before his sushi obsession brought him down are overjoyed that he is gone. Makes me wonder if someone wasn't a little too hands with the dropping of mercury into that half caf-mocha grande soy latte of Piven's. Not content to just bad mouth Piven to the press, both Raul Esparza and Elizabeth Moss took pot shots at Piven after the curtain call yesterday in front of the audience.

"I’m sure you’ve read the headlines about the silliness in our show. Today was the first time I really enjoyed playing this show. I hope you weren’t expecting a big TV star.”

Nice. You don't see that kind of hatred except when you celebrate Christmas at the Sheen house.

I love that they say big "TV star" and not just "star" - just that extra slap for good measure.

Can someone explain to me why Piven is hated? I keep reading references to him being a douche, a jerk, an asshole, but there's never a story accompanying it as to why he any or all of the above.

Ms. .. for me .. it was the whole taking sides thing on the John Cusack-Jeremy Piven feud a few years back.

I will side with John every time.

Ms. said...

Ohhh, that's gross. Cusack rocks.

Anyone else with stories?

what's interesting about this is Cusack...who I do like...gets bashed for being a D/Bag too...Piven is in Page Six on a daily basis..almost..for acting like the Last Flannel Shirt in a Lesbian Lumberjack camp....

This does it for me: :)

Jeremy Piven has been banned from Nobu Matsuhisa's restaurants after he left a DVD of the first season of Entourage as a tip.

speaking of douchebags,
anybody else sick to death of mr. "natural smell" matthew mc whattever's cologne ads? is there anything worse than a guy who DOESN'T use deodorant but who showers in cologne (yes, i answer myself, a guy who stars in an ad that runs every 15 minutes!)?!
sorry, it must be that drink i mentioned earlier.
is it christmas yet?

Does anyone else have the feeling that The Piven, who is so universally hated, when Entourage is dunzo his phone won't be ringing off the hook with job offers. And those 4th or 5th tier starring roles like The Kingdom will simply disappear altogether.

He must have been really hated by his co-workers for them to publicly diss him like that, it's just not done in the theater.
