The Piven Update

Why doesn't anyone believe Life After Midnight's favourite actor and partial Broadway phenom JP? Jeremy talked with Diane Sawyer on the Today Show this week about his withdrawal from his Broadway role in 'Speed the Plow'.

It was classic Ari Gold as he gave a performance worthy of another Golden Globe nomination. I don't really believe him but he's just so darn charismatic that I feel his pain. That pain that was mercury poisoning is now, according to the Associated Press, in the form of a lawsuit.

"'Speed the Plow' producers have filed a grievance with Actors' Equity Association, the stage actors' union, against Jeremy Piven for abruptly leaving the Broadway revival last month." - Associated Press

We will keep you posted as the debacle unfolds.
