I’ve been writing Miramax pallies about some long-awaited Peter O’Toole face-time when he finally arrives in Los Angeles, following his smashing success on the New York talk-show circuit. (And getting no reply.) The Envelope‘s Tom O’Neil has been interested in same, but he reported early this morning that a Miramax rep has told Gold Derby, “Unfortunately, O’Toole flew back to London [last] Saturday. He was exhausted after his crazy press schedule in New York and didn’t have it in him to come here. If we get the Oscar nom, he will come.” Good heavens…he was supposed to fly to L.A. and settle in and chill and take it as it comes. I don’t believe “exhaustion” was the all of it.
