"Sushi-Gate" Update

"At one point, he cited the Obama administration’s warning about mercury pollution as a grave threat, and also quoted the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — 'no lie can last forever' — in expressing confidence that his reputation would survive the conflict with the producers."

-Jeremy Piven, still fighting charges from his Speed-the-Plow producers of violating his contract when he bailed on their show.

Piven caught a break a couple of weeks ago when fellow actors sided with him on a convened panel to hear the case. He denies, by the way, that this was a "sushi" problem and vows to return to the stage.

If this statement is any indicator, I wonder if he's already preparing for his next role--Jesus.
