Don't Mess with Christopher Plummer! He Will Cut You!

11/8/2007 6:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Christopher Plummer did a radio promo tour for his new flick, "Man in the Chair" this morning -- but left "The Walton & Johnson Show" in Houston with nothing but a dial tone. The nerve!

Christopher was right to do this; what busy person wants their time wasted by lazy people?

I notice there are many rude and ignorant comments on here made by what are obviously Americans. It doesn't even take their defeat by a tin pot middle east country to make them look like cretins does it?

I understand your loyalty. But the 10% folks are blindly following two men who make a living reading the newspaper while on the air. They also make a few comments about gun control, public eduation or the mayor base on nothing more than some inflamatory comment from a public official.
Get smart people. Read the paper before you hear it read to you. Form you own opinion and consider yourselves lucky to be able to make choices by yourself. When you support W & J you show how very uninformed that you are. Lost like lambs.

The funny thing about radio people is they have a way of controling the environment, making sure that they have the last word. The last word is very important when your adversary can respond. Makes for a good bully. Every radio person I have ever met is little more than some timid ego driven leech scared to death that their show is going to be cut and that after the cut, its over. I mean over. n Look around Houston: Chris Baker, Stevens and Pruitt, Outlaw Dave, Moby the list goes on and on

I am sure norman, ok needs for a morning radio team to read the daily specials at the IGA and the high school lunch menu.

Every interview is an opportunity to make the show and the guest look good. I don't think this happended with the Plummer interview.

It wasn't a matter of the radio hosts "not doing their homework" like some here have suggested. I heard the interview and all the jocks asked him to do was to "tell us a little about your movie" for the benefit of the listeners. NOT an unreasonable request if you're trying to promote a movie. But Plummer's ego was wounded when the hosts answered honestly by telling him they had not viewed the screening tape his people had sent the station. And the fact Mr. Plummer hung up on OTHER radio stations as well does not bode well with promtoting his movie OR positive image. I like him as an actor, but think he should rethink future promotional radio tours as it is obviously not his cup of tea.

So how is this suppose to work at Radio? Does every radio show guest/movie star send his movie? What was so hard about telling the radio host about the movie? He's dialing to promote it ...right?

They showed no respect.

He was there to answer questions and promote a movie, not to give them the TV guide synopsis.

He's not the corner grocer calling in to tell them about a weekly special for heavens sake!

Show some intelligence people.
