David O. Russel, Madman

Tip ‘o the cap to Michael for pointing me to this clip from the set of I Heart Huckabees featuring director David O. Russel having a total meltdown in response to Lily Tomlin’s persistent nagging:

The internet is rife with stories of Russel’s misadventures, like a Russel/Clooney fistfight on the set of Three Kings, but this is the only one I’ve seen captured on film. Anybody ever worked on a Russel set and have a story to share?

  1. I loved “IHH” and “Three Kings” had no idea who the director was or any idea about his behavior, which in this clip is appalling enough to make me think twice about seeing another movie he makes.

  2. Been there, done that. And NO comment.
    Also no comment for the following Directors as well:
    Oliver Stone
    Sophie Muller
    Michael Bay
    James Cameron
