On breaks during rehearsals, we would sometimes slip outside our soundstage on the Paramount lot and get to swapping stories. It’s not unusual to have these mini-AA meetings — people like us are the only ones to whom tales of insanity don’t sound insane. “Yeah, I used to do that.” I told him I felt lucky because I’m squeamish and can’t handle needles. He told me to stay squeamish. And he said this: “If one of us dies of an overdose, probably 10 people who were about to won’t.” He meant that our deaths would make news and maybe scare someone clean.
Aaron Sorkin • In an article for Time Magazine discussing his relationship with Philip Seymour Hoffman as the two worked together on “Charlie Wilson’s War.” Both were clean at the time.

Here’s a mockup of the Web site for Atlantis Cable News, the fictional network at the center of Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming HBO show, “The Newsroom” (no relation to the ’90s Canadian dramedy of the same name). The show, starring Jeff Daniels and Jane Fonda, will be a bit of a harkening back to past Sorkin shows, taking a similar approach to “Sports Night” and “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” but applying it to an MSNBC/Fox News-style cable news network. Will be fun to watch. (h/t Poynter)

Steve Jobs’ death: Noah Wyle’s comeback ticket? Since leaving “ER,” the erstwhile “Pirates of Silicon Valley" co-star, shown above in full Steve Jobs mode, has mostly been stuck in a bit of a rut as a star of numerous TNT-based TV movies and shows. OK, maybe you’re a fan of "The Librarian" franchise; don’t take offense. But if Steve Jobs gets the rumored Aaron Sorkin treatment, and Wyle’s tapped to star, it’s back to the A-List with him. Only problem: The guy he’s rumored to be competing against for the elusive Steve Jobs biopic role? George Clooney. That’s right, Wyle’s former “ER” costar who probably lost his number around the time that “Oceans Seven” came out. (Editor’s Note: There is no “Oceans Seven.”) For Noah’s sake, if the rumors are true, we hope he kicks Clooney’s ass.

His first Oscar nomination and win?  I’m genuinely surprised.

But he totally deserved it this time. And that’s all that matters.

I wish I could go door to door and make this explanation/apology to any woman offended by the things you’ve pointed out but obviously that’s unrealistic so I thought the least I could do was speak directly to you.
Aaron Sorkin • In a response to a blog commenter critical of the way “The Social Network” portrayed women throughout the film. His explanation? “I was writing about a very angry and deeply misogynistic group of people. These aren’t the cuddly nerds we made movies about in the 80’s.” He also notes that the misogynistic attitudes extend to the not-so-nerdy finals clubs near the beginning of the film. And he claims, out of respect for the more private people involved – Mark Zuckerberg’s putdown queen ex-girlfriend, Eduardo Saverin’s psycho ex – he didn’t use their real names. Good explanation, but will it appease everyone? source (via)
