quicksilver, bitch
Jeremy Piven is going with doctors’ orders as his reason for abruptly quitting his starring role in the still-running Broadway revival of “Speed-the-Plow”. That’s not flying with the show’s playwright, David Mamet, who offered this reaction to the sick note:

“I talked to Jeremy on the phone, and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury,” Mamet said. “So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer.”

Temperatures rising over this one, I’d say. I imagine Piven’s counter would be a suggestion on where Mamet can stick that thermometer. With the resultant snappy patter resembling a typical Mamet piece of writing.
