Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
Genre: uh… romantic hitman comedy?
Stars: John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Dan Ackroyd, Jeremy Piven, Michael Cudlitz, Alan Arkin (Catch 22), Joan Cusack, Hank Azaria.
Plot: a hitman is hired to do a job in his hometown at the time of his ten year high-school reunion, and on the advice of his psychiatrist decides to attend and try to reconcile with the girlfriend he abandoned for a decade without a word, and maybe not kill anyone for a while.
Why It’s Great:
Waitress: What would you like in your omlette?
Blank: Nothing in the omlette, nothing at all.
Waitress: Technically that's not an omlette.
Blank: Look, I don't want a semantic argument about it, I just want the protein.
Grocer: Easy there, chief. I don't see hollow-point wound care on the menu.
Paul: I'll see you at the 'I've-Peaked-and-I'm-Kidding-Myself' party.
Blank: Debi's house.
Paul: Kinda crept up on you, didn't it?
Blank: No, you drove us here.
Paul: ... Yep.

Jason L: We just had a Contract Killer Weekend at my house apparently, as I watched GPB on Friday and then we all saw The Whole Nine Yards. Jeremy Piven appears in both. Getting typecast as "Old Friend of One of the Characters in Hitman Movies" seems like slim pickings to me.
Tom Francis: I think his performance in Entourage pretty much guarantees that's not what he'll be remembered for.
Iain: Jeremy Piven is also notable as the vet-cum-doctor-for-injured-hoodlums who has his shirt nicked by Robert De Niro in Heat, and as "Elvis" Wolcott (the pilot of the first downed chopper) in Black Hawk Down.
