Today's New York Times profile of Ari Emanuel may be a day late, but it's certainly not a dollar short. In it, not only do we learn that Emanuel was college roommates with Peter Berg, but we also get recent evidence of his legendary temper: "Mr. Emanuel’s temper flared in negotiations with NBC over the drama Medium, which was created by one of his clients, Glenn Gordon Caron. The spat, which broke out when the network balked at financial terms, concluded with Medium moving to CBS and Mr. Emanuel threatening Marc Graboff, co-chairman of NBC Entertainment, with personal ruin."
