- A Conversation with Aaron Sorkin
Aaron Sorkin began his critically-acclaimed career as a playwright, after the success of his play A Few Good Men on Broadway. He adapted the play into the feature film starring Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson, which was a box-office success. In the late 1990s, Aaron transitioned into television, creating Sports Night in 1998 and West Wing in 1999, which became famous for the “walk and talk” directing technique. After West Wing's seven-season run, Aaron created Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and wrote Charlie Wilson’s War. Aaron was then nominated for Academy Awards in consecutive years for The Social Network and Moneyball. In 2015, Aaron wrote Steve Jobs, which offered a unique insight on the larger-than-life tech icon.
Aaron is currently adapting To Kill a Mockingbird for the stage and is set to make his directorial debut with Molly’s Game.
