You must remember all the same that at the crux of every game is knowing when it's time to leave the table... And it's important to be artful in your exit. No turning back, you must accept the con is done... It was a ball, it was a blast. And it's a shame it couldn't last. But every chapter has to end, you must agree.

I too like the picture and feel sad that someone who's worked so hard for quite a number of years and is now big is such a dick about it. Although he was hotter before the hair plugs...

Isn't the #1 symptom of mercury poisoning ripping the sleeves off expensive shirts? I thought I read that somewhere...

He's bizarrely sensitive to criticism. I don't know how he could have gotten as far as he did if he gets so upset whenever anyone criticizes him.

Can we blame this on high mercury levels, too?

another short section mentioning Piven outburst:

http://music.msn.com/hotgossip/1-26-09_4/?GT1=28102

(half-way down the page)

the best part of it was this sentence:

As for bailing out of the play weeks before his contract was up, a production insider sneers, "Jeremy Piven proved to the world that he's a television star, he's not an actor."
<--- the set of A Midsummer Night's Dream that I was assistant stage manager for during the 2007 season at the STNJ outdoor stage.

that's a wig, not hairplugs.
Other than that, did you enjoy the play Mrs Lincoln?

I sort of wish the Emmys snub him out of a nomination this year, so NPH can finally win.

Is anyone else puzzled by the fact that this photoshoot was done back in September?

If this thread is to celebrate his douchebagness, then I'm all for it.

I'm just wondering how this is relevant to his mercury fiasco

Please. Rainn Wilson and Jack McBrayer get Emmys first.

Hell, it'd be nice to see anyone BUT Piven get an Emmy, especially when his character has been repeating the same schtick for the last two seasons.

Not really, most of the articles about this photo have said in one way or another that they're just coming forward about the incident now because since he backed out and has behaved so poorly, it's now okay to talk about this photo shoot.

It's relevant to the mercury fiasco because it's another example of Piven being a self-centered diva who's terrible to work with.
