Meet Hollywood's most inglorious bastard.
Legendary bad boy movie mogul Don Simpson has just been made the new head of production at Paramount Studios. As he waits for a journalist to arrive for a customary interview, he reflects on his hectic life so far. A life that has seen him rise from Nowhereville Alaska to the top of the Hollywood food chain.
''YOU KNOW WHAT I LIKE TO DO AT FOUR O'CLOCK, ED?'' is a fast and furious Hollywood story. It's a scene sliced right out of Don Simpson's life.
Can the ferocious Simpson win over the journalist from the L.A. Times?
