Another Piven Rehash, Are You Serious?

Quick name a Tony award winning actor who is not Huge Jackman. I didn’t think so.

Those finger-on-the-pulse-of-mainstream-America Broadway watchers over at the New York Times have crafted yet another rehash of the stale Jeremy-Piven-claims-to-have-mercury-poisoning story.

This time the saga is complete with excerpts from the arbitrator’s ruling that ended the contract dispute. But it’s also complete with gems about how Piven “stunned the theater world in December by bolting the revival of David Mamet’s Hollywood drama “Speed-the-Plow.”

I had no idea the theater world was “stunned.” Nor did I or most people really care.

Question, are we ever going to stop hearing about this in the media?
