Tobey Maguire Owes Tracy Morgan $75

Tracy Morgan has been making the talk-show rounds to promote Death at a Funeral and has lived up to his reputation by bringing the party to every appearance, but none so far on this tour have brought us as much joy as his interview on The Daily Show last night. The interview focused almost entirely on an audience member's question, relayed to Tracy by Jon, about an Internet rumor that Tracy has never seen the Spiderman movies because Tobey Maguire owes him $75. (We traced it to an offhand comment Morgan made years ago to Jimmy Kimmel.) Somehow, Tracy manages to throw former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, Tiger Woods, Elin Woods, and a kindly anonymous Burger King employee under the bus in the course of the interview, which leaves Jon (new nickname: "Stew-beef") practically in tears and begging Tracy, "You have to stop!" Tobey Maguire should do the right thing and pay up.
