On yesterday's edition of AMC's Shootout, chat-happy Hollywood Peters Bart and Guber invited director Wes Anderson to talk about The Darjeeling Limited, inevitably touching on Anderson's understandable reticence at having to address the Owen Wilson Situation each time he fulfills his promotional obligations for the film. (The media, it seems, have an annoying habit of comparing the real-life Wilson to the troubled, possibly suicidal character he portrays in the movie.)

But in an attempt to keep the conversation regarding the unpleasant reality of having tragedy impinge upon art from getting too heavy, Peter Bart shares an amusing anecdote about how the death of Jim Carrey's career during the first week of shooting the 2003 Fun with Dick and Jane remake forced him to try and "cut around" his star, a tough decision that ultimately could not salvage the doomed project.
