Jon Lovitz may not have used a fake leg – but he recently went all Heather Mills on one of the world’s most annoying celebrities.
And we haven’t been this excited about a clobbering since Spencer Pratt and Joel Madden went at it.
Here’s what went down: Lovitz beat the snot out of Andy Dick at L.A. club The Laugh Factory. The cause? Built up tension over the way Dick contributed to the death of Saturday Night Live alum Phil Hartman.
The New York Post talked to Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada, who witnessed the assault. He said: “Jon picked Andy up by the head and smashed him into the bar four or five times, and blood started pouring out of his nose.”
Looks like Michael Vick could’ve been involved with comic fighting instead of dog fighting if he so desired.
Lovitz and Dick have been at odds since a 1997 Christmas party at Hartman’s house, five months before his troubled wife Brynn flipped out, fatally shooting Hartman, then killing herself in a murder/suicide somewhat similar to that of Chris Benoit.
“Andy was doing cocaine, and he gave Brynn some after she had been sober for 10 years. Phil was furious about it – and then five months later he’s dead,” said Lovitz, adding that when he filled in on Hartman’s Newsradio sitcom, “I told Andy, ‘I wouldn’t be here now if you hadn’t given Brynn that cocaine.’ “
Last year, Lovitz related, a drunken Dick strolled up to his table at Ago in West Hollywood, rudely downed his guests’ peach liqueur drinks, and “looked at me and said, ‘I put the “Phil Hartman hex” on you – you’re the next one to die.’ I said, ‘What did you say?’ and he repeated it. I wanted to punch his face in, but I don’t hit women.”
It really does sound to us like Dick is worse than Sean Stewart.
When the two ran into each other at the Laugh Factory last Wednesday, “I wanted him to say he was sorry for the ‘Phil Hartman hex,’ ” Lovitz told the Post. “First he says, ‘I don’t remember saying that.’ Then he leans in and says, ‘You know why I said it? Because you said I killed Phil Hartman.’ Which I never said. Then he asked me to be in his new movie.
“I grabbed him by the shirt and leaned him over and said, ‘I don’t want to be in your movie! I don’t want to be in your life!’ I pushed him against the rail. Then I pushed him again really hard. A security guard broke it up. I’m not proud of it . . . but he’s a disgusting human being.”
Way to go, Jon! Now, if you have a free moment, can you also take care of Isaiah Washington for us?
