At premiere, bad bosses remembered

Cast, execs of 'Bosses' recall bad supervision

Thursday night’s premiere of Warner Bros./New Line “Horrible Bosses” at the Chinese provoked plenty of memories …. of horrible bosses.

“I used to be a waiter in New York,” mused Charlie Day at the after-screening bash at The Colony. “People weren’t very nice. It wasn’t a nice job.”

Director Seth Gordon said the preem provided him with a reminder of why he got into the business in the first place. “I became a director because I’d had horrible bosses and I didn’t want to answer to a lot of people,” he added.

Screenwriter Jonathan Goldstein recalled that he’d joined a law firm in New York in 1995 and found himself surrounded by horrible bosses.

“They had a lot of power over my life, ruining my weekends, and they were horrible people,” he noted. “I quit on my birthday in 1998 as a present to myself and came to Los Angeles without a job.”

New Line president of production Richard Brener allowed that he’s perhaps the exception. “Toby Emmerich (New Line topper) is a great boss and the guy I worked for as a shoe salesman was a pretty good guy too,” he added.
