So much for Jeremy Piven's ex-castmates lending support to his fishy "mercury-poisoning" story.

Well after yesterday's matinee of "Speed-the-Plow," according to FOX News, Raul Esparza let loose on Piven, saying the performance was "the first time I really enjoyed playing this show" and referred to Sushigate as "silliness." Meanwhile, female lead Elisabeth Moss "sobbed."

We're told Piven was in NYC Friday so producers could get a second opinion on Jeremy's mercury story.
