“ For director/writer. He can feel the role of wearing Aaron Sorkin's shoes. If you think I'm crazy getting the director of Rocket Science on-board, just watch whatever he directs. I have only seen one episode he directed for Parks and Recreation, but I feel he will make an impact on keeping true to The West Wing. ” - smcgann14
