Brian Grazer Just Wants to Be Loved

According to the NY Times, producer Brian Glazer leaves a little memento in homes where he’s been a guest. No, not an artfully hidden turd, but a photo of himself in a little heart-shaped frame. Same thing, really.

If this is meant to be endearing, it misses by a mile.

Allison Hope Weiner writes:

But few people could describe a Brian Grazer project, except to say that it will probably make a lot of money.

Looking at his IMDB entry, it’s hard to get a grip on the inner life of a guy who saw fit to make both The Nutty Professor and A Beautiful Mind. Like Browning’s duchess, he “liked what e’er he looked upon and his looks went everywhere”. Maybe going deeper and narrower would be a good idea, as he wants to be better known for his achievements.

Nikki thinks he deserves the Thalberg Award.
