A post from my Marvel blog of many years ago, referencing when writer/creator Marc Guggenheim gave an incidental character my name on an episode of his television series Eli Stone
There’s very little that AMAZING SPIDER-MAN writer Marc Guggenheim likes more than a plug for his ABC television series Eli Stone, now in its second season. And there are very few lengths he won’t go to in order to get one.
This is how, last season, Natasha Henstridge wound up taking an important and plot-crucial phone call from “Tom Brevoort at Chaykin Industries.” But this year, Marc topped himself—and all, I’d like to think, for the chance to be mentioned on this blog.
Two weeks ago, actor Matt Reidy was Tom Brevoort. Or, should I say, Tom Breevort (Marc had some line about them deliberately changing the spelling in order to get the name past their legal department, but I know he just can’t spell it just like everybody else.) And while he possesses a distinctive lack of proud, distinguished facial hair, Matt carried the torch proudly. Some might say he stole the show (some in my family, at least.)
Marc Guggenheim’s Eli Stone. Tuesdays at 10:00 on ABC. This is not a Marvel-sponsored event.
