As much as we love the work of Aaron Sorkin, it won't last forever. One day 'The Newsroom' will run its course, as 'The West Wing' fades into memory, and forgotten efforts like 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip' become cautionary tales. So what better way to pay tribute to one of Aaron Sorkin's fallen, than to reunite 'Studio 60' stars Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford? Find out who Whitford will play on NBC's 'Go On' inside!
For as much drama as HBO's 'The Newsroom' creates around Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy and his supporting players, it's easy to forget that the show roots itself in real-life news events by keeping a timeline several months behind our own. Previously, we'd heard of a few guest stars joining the second season of HBO's buzzy Aaron Sorkin drama, but the latest confirms that former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will play a large role in season 2! So, are you ready to meet our new recurring cast member, a link to the famous one-percenter?
First, forget about that Ashton-Kutcher-as-Steve-Jobs movie - that's not what we're talking about here. This is the Steve Jobs biopic written by Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin ('The Social Network,' 'A Few Good Men') that will serve as, for all intents and purposes, the official biopic of record. And what Sorkin is bringing to the film is certainly groundbreaking. Instead of using a traditional structure, the film will take place over three days in Jobs' life as he launched three of Apple's biggest products.
It was only a few short months ago that everyone was up in arms over whether or not Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama 'The Newsroom' was either his best work to date, or a pale imitation of beloved past dramas like 'The West Wing.'

But what cause could bring such Hollywood greats together again for a 'West Wing' reunion?
Whether you love or hate HBO's new Aaron Sorkin media drama 'The Newsroom,' there's no denying that it has people talking. That is to say, it has people arguing! Critics of the series have been extremely vocal about the manner in which Sorkin portrays women, as well as recycles both lines and plots from his past works, as well as the recent changes to the writing staff, but what happens when Sorkin faces a room full of inquisitive reporters?
Steve Jobs passed away less than a year ago, but Hollywood can't wait to make films about him. Currently Ashton Kutcher is filming 'Jobs,' which follows Jobs' rise to power, but now Sony has thrown their hat in the ring, and has Aaron Sorkin adapting Walter Isaacson’s biography 'Steve Jobs' for the big screen.
Sure, 'Game of Thrones' is great and all (I mean, did you see last night's "The Ghost of Harrenhal?"), but with 'Boardwalk Empire' still on hiatus, it may feel like we've been a little lacking for down-to-Earth HBO drama. So before we settle in this summer, how about a fresh look at Aaron Sorkin's upcoming news drama 'The Newsroom?'
