HBO's "Luck" Memo

Forget Dead Horses ...

It's March Madness!!!

3/15/2012 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hours after horse #3 keeled over ... the cast and crew of "Luck" received a sensitive memo urging them to remember one very important thing -- place your bets for the NCAA Basketball Tournament!!

TMZ obtained the "Luck" call sheet for Wednesday -- featuring shoot times for Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Farina, Nick Nolte and others -- and while it makes no mention of Tuesday's on-set tragedy ... it does state in bold type: "Don't forget to turn in your NCAA brackets ... by 7PM tonight"

That turned out to be the last call sheet -- "Luck" was cancelled late Wednesday ... and HBO's statement noted their "heartbreak" over the situation. Clearly, nothing soothes the soul faster than nailing the Final Four.

To be fair, March Madness does begin today -- and similar reminders were sent around millions of offices ... though we're guessing a horse didn't drop dead in most of them.

Luck was an unblinking show about the dangers and inherent beauty of horses and criel whims of racing. You make your dirty money off nipple slips and celebrity misery. Now you are exploiting the tragic deaths of 3 horses while countless animals are dying while we speak for your meals, clothes, medicine, inconvenience, roads, etc.. You're not exactly PETA, and your defensive bitter replies to private words spoken on set are just another pathetic relection of your dark and vacant souls. Karma, indeed. Check yourself fools.

Who gives a **** about the horses...I'm serious...You know how many horses died in the wild west? You guys act like these horses are humans...for crying out loud their horses and if they take a **** then they take a ****...It cracks me up that TMZ posts that after the 3rd horse died they continued to keep shooting and then this **** about the NCAA...do you really think we are supposed to stop our lives and mourn a horse like a human....What the **** has American come too.

Typical TMZ, making a story out of absolutely nothing. Maybe you should fix your headline because this isn't a memo, but a call sheet for that day of shooting, not to mention that heading was most likely written hours before the horse incident happened. How you can call yourself journalism is beyond me.

I thought the redneck a**hole here in NC who published Peyton Manning’s Angus Barn restaurant bill was bad, but this is REALLY sickening. There are cell phone numbers on this. I very rarely visit this site. Thanks for reminding me why. Who gives a f*ck about this?
