Producers for "Speed-the-Plow" will have to now convince an arbitrator Jeremy's doctor's note claiming mercury poisoning was bogus. In the statement, Jeremy's rep says Piven was so sick he could have had a heart attack if he didn't drop out of the play. So Jeremy did, despite "glowing reviews."
Piven's rep says Jeremy was examined by a "Harvard-educated cardiologist affiliated with Yale." End of story!
And there's this. Piven says he is "pleased with the Obama administration" for seeking an international treaty to reduce Mercury pollution.
