Personal Quote:

[on the stand-alone episode of 'The Leftovers', revolving around Reverend Matt Jamison] I think we'll get a variety of reactions. But it's another way of signaling the viewers , like 'This isn't going to be a familiar experience. This show is going to be a little bit hard to get your arms around, but if you're patient it will yield up some interesting rewards'.

Trivia:

Early in his career, he ghostwrote "The Thrill Club", an R.L. Stine book from the "Fear Street" series. See more »
