    Says he has a high level of mercury. Pretty snarky quote from the playwright in there.

    Love Mamet, but he can be a bitch, especially when it comes to his ex-wife.

    Wow. Just wow.

    That's the kind of joke I would make.

    He basically hung one of his shows out to dry because she got all the money. Can't recall which one.

    Too bad. The production got terrific reviews, particularly focusing on Piven's and Elizabeth Moss's (Peggy in Mad Men) performances.

    I marvel every time I see Entourage and those commercials for Speed The Plow and wonder how Piven went from balding nerd who occassionally essayed the weasely douchebag who gets his comeuppance to slick I-rule-the-world-with-my full-hair-of-head piece of crap. He spent multiple years on Ellen. ON ELLEN! Oh yeah and he played George Costanza in the show-within-a-show on Seinfeld...15 years ago! And he was a balding nerd in One Crazy Summer...23 years ago!

    Now I read interviews with the guy and it's obvious he's not leaving Ari Gold at the studio. What an insufferable sounding guy. Bad news, dude. You're 44 next year. Time is ticking.

    Mercury fucks with your mind. Cut the guy a break.
    I wonder if he's cold?

    He was balding in Singles, 16 years ago.

    Didn't he and John Cusack have a falling out? They were big friends, but I'm sure Piven became mega-douche. I have a good Derby story about Piven I don;t have to share write now.

    Graham Parker wrote a great song called "Mercury Poisoning," but in his case he was bitching about his crappy record label.
