If I’d been in Steve Weintraub‘s shoes I would have done the slightly gauche thing and asked Steve Tisch, chairman and CEO of the New York Giants as well as producer of Seven Pounds and the forthcoming Taking of Pelham 123, for help with tickets to the 12.21 Giants vs. the Carolina Panthers game. Because Jett told me last week he wants to go.
Not freebies — just good seats. Not that Tisch doesn’t get tapped for Giants tickets each and every day, or is in any way inclined, much less obliged, to do anyone on the movie-promo circuit this kind of favor. But I’d ask anyway. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. If rejection results, fine. But you can’t pussy out about stuff like this.
