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'.


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