Jay Leno instructs American public to have sense of humor about Jeremy Piven's mercury poisoning

Posted on

Specifically, his sense of humor. This Ari Gold-esque sketch, in which Jeremy Piven berates a Tonight Show intern who allowed sushi to be placed in his dressing room, had been shelved in a sumptuous heap of seaweed salad and expired roe long before Piven’s appearance on last night’s show. If you’ll remember, Piven had backed out of Broadway’s Speed the Plow due to mercury poisoning in late 2008. Perhaps it’s time we have a good laugh about it.

Season 7 of Entourage, the show I can’t seem to quit despite not really enjoying it all that much, premieres Sunday on HBO. Are you in?
