Docs to Piven: Broadway is Bad for Your Health

12/17/2008 4:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jeremy Piven claims he's been way too sick to show up for his Broadway show -- and the illness is so bad, it could be curtains for good.

Piven missed last night's performance, today's matinee, and will also be missing tonight's showing of "Speed-the-Plow." His rep tells TMZ, "Jeremy has not been feeling well and the doctors have advised him that he should end his run in 'STP' immediately."

Piven was scheduled to perform throughout the show's run, which goes until Feb. 22.

No further details about the illness were available. A rep for the show didn't immediately comment.

He's lying. He's not sick, he's too lazy to finish out the run of the show. He'll be replaced. Two actors are already lined up.

Piven is a hack at best. Like many "Celebrities" that TMZ promotes, he thinks he's more important than he actually is.I agree he's suffering from sucky actor illness.

Will this guy PLEASE come out of the closet. He is so so conceited, arrogant and just plain boring. His claim to fame will ONLY be Ari. Another he thinks he hot and not. Has been.
