The leaked Sony emails have provided a glimpse of behind-the-scenes in Hollywood, including lots of smack-talk and examples of how messy it can be to make a film. And also, apparently, some odd favors that celebs ask for.
A laughable email exchange published by Business Insider shows that after Community got canceled in May, star Joel McHale asked Sony Pictures Television president Steve Mosko's assistant to get him a discount on an $8,000 Sony TV.
McHale wanted the 65-inch X950B 4K Ultra HD, which retails for $7,999.99.
It's Joel McHale. You might remember me from such canceled Sony tv shows as—Community.
So when I was talking to Steve about the show ending last Friday, I asked about a discount on a Sony tv. He said of course. He's the greatest as you know. I didn't want to bother him with the specific details of the screen I want so I thought I would bother you. I hope that is it [sic] cool.
It's below. You can check with Steve obviously if this all sounds strange.
I'm not sure how this all works but I'm happy to send a credit card number wherever necessary.
Thanks Fayanne. I'm very much going to miss working at Sony.
