Down-to-earth actor Jeremy Piven gave several college students, such as myself, the opportunity to interview him on his new movie, “The Goods. Live Hard. Sell Hard.” Not only is he naturally funny, but he’s very easy-going. He is the type of guy you can sit down and talk with for hours (even about nothing) without having a dull moment.
Due to the fact Paramount Pictures requested I write an article to be printed in Palm Beach Atlantic University’s newspaper, The Beacon, I won’t be able to include all the juicy details, but I will mention a quote from Jeremy : )
Jeremy was born in New York and began being involved with in acting at 8 years old. He has an amazing resume including films and shows such as: “Rugrats,” “Heat,” “Kiss the Girls,” “The Family Man,” “Rush Hour 2” (he played the gay guy in the suit shop), “Black Hawk Down,” “Old School,” “Scary Movie 3,” “Chasing Liberty,” “Entourage,” “Cars” (voice of ‘Harv’), “Smokin’ Aces,” “The Kingdom” and many more.
At one point he was speaking about his love for acting and how he became interested in the arts. His parents, Joyce and Byrne Piven, founded the Piven Theater Workshop.
“If it wasn’t for the Piven Theatre, I would be selling curly fries somewhere.”-Jeremy Piven
Thank you Jeremy, for reminding us where the rest of us stand during this economy, but without a doubt, his quick wit and genuine personality make him the successful person he has become.
Look out for my article in the Fall in The Beacon campus newspaper. 🙂
My name is Jenifer Herring. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University in print journalism with a minor in television. I originally started this blog to promote events while interning at renowned PR company in Palm Beach, Florida. I also love writing and this gives me an outlet to be creative. I believe being able to tell a story is a tremendous blessing. Words cause emotion and evoke change. The ability to create change is typically viewed/assumed by people in power (i.e. government), but the untold secret is journalists hold the key. As a journalist, you are to report the truth-a rare gem in today’s world. My promise to you is the truth. This blog is a way for you to get to know my personality. Some people find me to be entertaining and others….find my snarky sarcasm annoying. Either way, the end result is you know ME. Now that we’re somewhat acquainted, call me Jen. It’s nice to meet you.
