Interviewed today for the NY Post
I was interviewed today by a journalist at the New York Post regarding Jeremy Piven's withdrawal from the Broadway production of “Speed The Plow” late last year.
The actor withdrew suddenly from the show, citing his doctor's advice following the discovery that he's suffering from mercury poisoning. Apparently, “Speed” producers have sought a second medical opinion about whether Piven's withdrawal was really necessary, and are now weighing their options.
They may be considering a breach-of-contract suit against the actor, who's been replaced in the show first by Norbert Leo Butz and now, William H. Macy.
