If there had to be one actor whom everyone hates working with, it'd be this guy
. He's A+ list actor/singer on Broadway, B-list in movies/TV mostly in dramatic roles. Multiple Tony wins/nominations. This incident happened during rehearsals for what was considered to be his comeback show. The actor lambasted a cast member that was supposed to help him on with a waistcoat at the end of a scene — she couldn't get to him because it was the first time they'd worked with the moving set. He stopped and berated her for 5 minutes: “What the f**k is the matter with you?” and “I'm not getting the support that I need” and “I expect you to be here with that damn coat”, etc. The female cast member there and stared at him. When he stopped with his tirade, she yelled “Mr. _________, I need to clarify one thing: I'm only PLAYING your maid. Never speak to me that way again or I'll quit.” The rest of the cast and crew cheered as she stomped off the stage, while the actor's face turned ashen white with horror.
