With the "psychopath" epithet tossed into the fray early in testimony at The Hollywood Trial of the Century, we knew that it wouldn't be long before someone laid the "cancer" metaphor at Michael Ovitz's feet. Today's testimony, however, contained a much more interesting image courtesy of a former Disney director:
"I didn't think we could shove Mr. Ovitz down Mr. Eisner's throat."
Would this be a problem of size or of gag reflex? Alas, it seems that a "bad fit" doomed Eisner and Ovitz's briefly beautiful relationship. What a shame. There must be some kind of a surgical solution if they ever decide to give it another go.
