10 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Aaron Sorkin gave fans the opportunity to ask him anything in his special Reddit Ama session. The “West Wing” and “Steve Jobs” writer took the time to respond to a handful of users who wanted his opinion and tips on how to become a better screenwriter and find out what he’s currently working on.

Here are 10 highlights from his “Ask Me Anything” Q&A:

What is one of the biggest mistakes rookie screenwriters make?

“One of the biggest mistakes rookie screenwriters make is not having a strong intention or obstacle. The drive shaft of a car, beautiful leather seats, a fantastic sound system, a really cool paint job but the car isn’t going to move forward if the car doesn’t have a strong intention or obstacle.”

Did he originally hope that ‘The Newsroom’ would cause a positive change in today’s major news networks?

‘Homeland’ Director Lesli Linka Glatter is Fearless (Emmy Video)

25 July 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It isn’t news when Lesli Linka Glatter earns another Emmy nomination for directing “Homeland” (Showtime) — this time, she’s gotten two, as well as sharing Best Drama with showrunners Alex Ganza and Howard Gordon and the other executive producers.

From the start, Glatter has deployed the rigorous discipline she learned from being a modern dance choreographer to meticulously preparing everything she does, from storyboards to character analysis.

After her AFI women’s directing program short was nominated for an Oscar in 1985, Steven Spielberg hired her to direct an episode of “Amazing Stories,” a huge-scale World War II battle sequence with soldiers storming a beach and 150 extras. Then there was nothing she couldn’t do. While she went on to direct the 1995 teen classic “Now and Then,” she has found more nourishment from television than movies.

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

Aaron Sorkin Launches Online Screenwriting Course

23 June 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It looks like Aaron Sorkin has learned how to stop worrying and love the internet. This summer, one can learn to never start dialogue with ‘damnit’ in a new masterclass from the writer, whose penned everything from The Social Network, Steve Jobs, The Newsroom, and The West Wing. He also covers more serious topics like realizing character arcs through dialogue, the importance of the but/except/then structure, the worst screenwriting crime, and hearing dialogue as music.

Following in the footsteps of Werner Herzog, pre-enrollment for the course is now available for $90, which grants early access to over 5 hours of material, launching later this summer. “There’s a great tradition of writers from one generation giving a hand to the next group coming up—a tradition I got a lot of benefit from. I think new screenwriters will come away from the MasterClass with a new sense of confidence,” Sorkin says. »

Stranger Things: Watch First Trailer for Winona Ryder Supernatural Drama

9 June 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The truth… just may be in Hawkins, Ind.

That’s our takeaway from the first trailer for Stranger Things, an X-Files-by-way-of-Stand-By-Me supernatural drama, starring Winona Ryder, that debuts on Netflix this summer.

Emmys: Who Leads (and Who Lags) in the Drama Actor Race

The absence of two perennial Emmy nominees (and eventual winners) in the lead actor in a drama series category — Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men) — raises the question: What was it about these roles that Television Academy members loved? Will McAvoy and Don Draper were brilliant, damaged characters who delivered witty one-liners and killer monologues on a regular basis. The same can be said for the haunted hacker played on Mr. Robot by Rami Malek, who's eligible in this category for the first time. That's part of why he stands a better shot at
