Is this with Anthony Michael Hall? I saw one with him that was a Jobs/Gates TV movie bio type thing,
Yes, that's it. I didn't know about it then. I really liked what I saw above, however.
Yup, that's the one Uli. I happen to be a sucker for films like this--"based on a true story about media figures"--if it's interesting AND DONE WELL.
The Late Shift
was kind of like that (I enjoyed it) but I think this looks much better.
They were going to make a film on Showtime called Two Blind Mikes
about two years ago based on the Eisner/Ovitz thing but I wonder what happened to that? I thought it might be interesting but personally I don't find the whole drama all that enticing...there's nothing really "big" about the case IMO other than the fact that he got paid 90 million or something....big deal, it happens all the time in Hollywood.
From a human level, it seems pretty dull.
I'd much rather see a film on Eisner vs. the other guy who was fired....

Here’s the clicker...no one’d blame ya.”
