Jeremy Piven Drops Mango-Bomb on Chris Kattan
According to the NY Daily News, the pair got into a shouting match when Kattan, at MTV to promote the IFC series 'Bollywood Hero,' sniped to Piven, "So, what are you here to promote, your Broadway play?" It was in reference to the 'Entourage' star's infamous exit from the show 'Speed the Plow' in December, citing mercury poisoning.
Piven whipped back with a doozy meant to insult Kattan's most known character on 'SNL': "Well, what are you here to promote? Mango?"
The actors continued barking at each other for a few minutes, but all the while, Kattan believed they were just two guys having a laugh.
"After some back and forth, Jeremy said something really personal to Chris that basically attacked his career," said one witness to fracas. "He said 'Whoa, man -- I thought we were just fooling around here.'"
To which Piven responded: "I'm getting sued for that s--t!" .... "It's not funny"
It was at this point that Piven allegedly slammed the door in Kattan's face.

Piven's rep: "Jeremy and Chris did see each other at MTV and they were joking around backstage before a talk show appearance, as many actors do. If it was interpreted as a fight, someone wasn't paying attention."
Kattan's rep: "Chris mistakenly asked Jeremy if he was there to promote his play and Piven fired back with 'What are you here to promote, Mango?' Chris tried to apologize."
