TODAY IN DAVID MAMET DOES SOMETHING THAT I DON'T WANT TO PUNCH HIM FOR!
Jeremy Piven has just dropped out of the Broadway production of "Speed the Plow", which was enjoying a healthy run (Justin saw it and said it was OK) and was slated to end in February '09. Piven is citing "health issues". The Mamet said this:
"I talked to Jeremy on the phone and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury. So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer."
Nice one DM.
