Xbox Live: Hollywood's meeting ground?

Posted by Kim Peterson at 4:41 PM

Xbox Live is the new place to network for Hollywood types, according to this Variety article. Blowing someone's head off at night makes it easier to approach them the next day with pitches, the article says. One writer interviewed says that listening in to the profanity used in the game helps him keep up with the latest slang.

"Is it really socially acceptable to talk business at 2 a.m. on the phone? Of course not," observes Zach Shiff-Abrams, an exec at Michael De Luca Prods. "But it's completely acceptable on Xbox Live."
