Howie Mandel would like to be paid for DVD games

Tue Aug 31, 2010 @ 12:14PM PST

Howiemandell[1]Howie Mandel was stiffed $210,000 for his work on three DVD games, according to this lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. The "America's Got Talent" judge and "Deal or No Deal" host is said to have provided video shooting and voice-over work for Imagination's "Would You Rather," "Fact or Crap" and "The Wrong Game."

Alevy Productions, Mandel's loan-out company, says it got two installments of $20,000 from Imagination as per a 2006 contract, but is owed the rest.

No word on whether the banker has made a fair and generous settlement offer that Mandel can contemplate.
