Gawker is reporting that the reason Entourage star Jeremy Piven left the show he was starring in three weeks early was Mercury Poisoning.

Bloomberg reports Colker told them Piven got all that extra mercury in his system because he was “eating sushi twice a day.” Which apparently is super-dangerous because the good doctor chatted with the highly-respected medical program Entertainment Tonight and revealed, “Jeremy has spent three days in the hospital recently, and the doctor tells us exclusively that the actor is no longer in New York.”

We hope that this is in fact the case and that Piven gets better very soon.
