N.Y. Times reporter Michael Cieply on studio chiefs like Paramount’s Brad Grey hanging onto their jobs because their bosses have come to value “stability over brilliance” because “the film business [has come to be] less about scoring the odd hit than keeping the pipeline full of something other than losers.” Isn’t that always the way? The dutiful stable dolt always seems to last longer in a given job than the brilliant erratic eccentric, especially in a doltish business environment.
