    Michael Eisner, the veteran Hollywood executive who served as president and CEO of Paramount Pictures from 1976-1984 and chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company from 1984-2005, let rip on former colleagues and competitors — among them Barry Diller, Roy E. Disney, Steve Jobs, Michael Ovitz, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Bob and Harvey Weinstein and Bob Iger — during a rare, wide-ranging, interview with The Hollywood Reporter this week. The 74-year-old now runs a venture capital firm, The Tornante Company, which finances BoJack Horseman, the animated comedy series that streams on Netflix, among many other projects.

    I like Eisner. Think he's a solid guy and a smart executive.
