Vanity Fair 300x300 Vanity Fair   The Sorkin Way by James Kaplan


The Sorkin Way


After writing two of the most interesting movies of the past several years (The Social Network and Moneyball), Aaron Sorkin has returned to television via HBO, which is premiering his dramatic series The Newsroom next month. On the set, as a blue-chip cast—including Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston, Emily Mortimer, and Olivia Munn—revel in (and wrestle with) their dialogue, James Kaplan hears about the intellectual and emotional underpinnings of Sorkin’s fictional world, from his love of screwball to his passion for argument.
