Send Pepsi-Cola or the Midget Will Sue

Howard said he'd heard from Mary McCormack, his "Private Parts" movie wife and star of "In Plain Sight," after Eric the Midget filmed his scene on her show, and she reported "no evidence" of Eric's infamously demanding behavior. To counter her testimony, Howard read her an email Eric sent to producers after he returned home. In the email, Eric complained that he hadn't been provided with--as stipulated in his contract--two 20-ounce bottles of Pepsi every day he was on set: "If this was Johnny Depp, he would have had the Pepsi-Cola. I am owed four 20-ounce bottles of Pepsi Cola...a deal is a deal." As Howard read on, Eric called in to say he was considering legal action: "No reason to get the lawyers involved!!!" Howard thought the little guy was shooting himself in the (clubbed) foot: "Eric, please tell me that this is a bit."
