So, do either of those dashing 1990s heartthrobs look anything like Steve Jobs to you? It may interest you to know that while Noah Wyle (Dr. Carter) has actually played the late Apple CEO before -- in 1999's TNT movie Pirates of Silicon Valley -- it's George Clooney (Dr. Ross) whose name has been mentioned since Sony purchased the rights to Jobs' biography. Isn't George Clooney just the guy that every dude wishes would play him in the movie about his life? But okay, we'll stay open-minded. Leonardo DiCaprio is playing J. Edgar Hoover, after all.
Aaron Sorkin did that to his face, guys. While writing. That is how intense he is -- he breaks his freaking face. You might be wondering if this means that Aaron Sorkin actually walks and talks while he writes, but no. That is not the case. At least not this time. No, he was reading some of his own writing to himself in a mirror and then got too close. And like some scene out of Evil Dead 2, the reflection of Aaron Sorkin reached out of the mirror and punched the real Sorkin in the face. No, I'm kidding. But he did head-butt himself by accident. And then he went to the Emmys, where Getty Images got the picture from above (that is Brenda Strong to the left). Thank you, Getty Images. And thank you, Aaron Sorkin.
Every writer's nightmare is the blank page. Aaron Sorkin has an excellent quote about it: "I love writing but hate starting." Well, what if there was a thing that put your script in motion at the push of a button? Well, that's what this is about: a Plot Device. Get it?
