No fewer than two press reps from Focus Features have contacted us today, urging us to post their response to the bizarre settlement that isn’t a settlement between Randy Quaid and the studio over proceeds from “Brokeback Mountain.”
And here it is:
“Randy Quaid is a wonderful actor who delivered a beautiful performance in BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. The circumstances of him dropping the suit are as mysterious as the circumstances under which he filed his claim. Focus Features never negotiated, offered or agreed to any settlement agreement with Mr. Quaid or his attorneys, but we are happy to put this behind us, and do wish Mr. Quaid all the best.”
We wonder: If a homophobic rancher drops a lawsuit, does it make a sound?
