It’s my humble opinion that L.A. Times reporters John Horn and Rachel Abramowitz have written more enthralling analysis pieces that this one, a sum-up about the increasingly strained relations between studios, producers and eccentric talent like Tom Cruise, Lindsay Lohan and M. Night Shyamalan, blah, blah. This mp3 of Mark Ebner‘s mouthing off about Cruise’s situation on a Calgary radio station on Wednesday, 8.23, is a livelier absorption. Ebner naturally embraces the Sumner-was-right scenario (Ebner and Andrew Breitbart’s Hollywood Interrupted book prophesized the Age of Celebrity Meltdowns) and he’s certainly not as measured or cautious as Horn and Abramowitz, but I prefer his take all the same.
