Quote of the Day: David Mamet

“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.”

-David Mamet, on Jeremy Piven's abrupt departure from Speed the Plow due to illness "attributable to a high mercury account. (Seriously, kids).
