Another One Bites the Dust

The scariest looking man in showbiz-- that would be Jon Dolgen of Paramount-- quit today. OBDS...E! isn't into judging people based on physical appearance, but....if you've ever seen a picture of Dolgen, you know what we mean when we say: Dude be scary looking!

Ah, you say, but I'll bet he's really one of the sweetest guys out there. Kinda like Brad Garrett's character on "Everybody Loves Raymond"...or Shrek.

Nope.

Consider what one Paramount employee told McZ today (yes, we've decided to start referring to ourself in the third person...and with a frat-like nickname. Deal with it).

Said the Paramount wage slave: "Dolgen quit? Seriously? The whole company's gonna be happy. He's a mean, mean man."

It's that extra "mean" that separates Dolgen from the rest of his mogul pals.

The man does not photograph well. Physically, he is not as ugly. HOWEVER, you said it right about being mean. He had all the executives shaking in their boots with his screaming, spitting and blowing smoke in their face from two inches away. A sick, sick man. He had a penchant for developing staff that adopted his own management styles. My happiest day there was the day I left.

Paramount seems to be doing better without that man.

Oddly, Paramount actually underwent a complete thermonuclear meltdown after Dolgen left - overhead skyrocketed, P&A budgets went to the moon and back, production slumped and box office was all but non existant. The only big pictures under Brad Grey have been Mission 3 and War of the Worlds - both Dolgen/Lansing. The complete fiasco that is Paramount today (January 2007) leads this staffer to say, who would have thought I would one day think of Dolgen as "The good old days?"
