Personal Quote:

When I did 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip' I would look over and see Aaron Sorkin pacing around in the corner of the stage, mumbling to himself. I thought, Well, he's crazy. And then I realized what he was actually doing was playing out the next week's scenes as he was writing them. And that was intriguing to me. So now I've become one of the people that mumbles in the corner of the room. See more »
