Jack Thompson has offered his help to EA in securing a take-over of Take-Two, and in the process getting rid of Strauss Zelnick, the publisher head he blames pretty much everything in the world on.

“I am delighted to work with Electronic Arts to evict the Zelnick Trojan Horse from within Take-Two’s corporate walls,” he said in a letter sent to EA. “In doing so, I can get the new Take-Two into the clear as to the trouble I and others can send its way.

“Zelnick is the source of trouble headed Take-Two’s way, not I, and EA can make the case, with my help, that such trouble can be avoided.”

He doesn’t mention how he can help EA buy Take-Two. The letter was CC’d to various media outlets. If you can help by engaging in a campaign of shameless self-promotion, Jack, we’re sure EA will be interested. Great portrait, by the way.
