Sorkin Supercut of the Day

It appears The Newsroom will be a mere rearrangement of the same tired perfectly crafted lines that Aaron Sorkin has used for every project since the early '90s.

Ingenious editor Kevin Porter borrowed scenes from:

  • Malice
  • A Few Good Men
  • Bulworth
  • Sports Night
  • The West Wing
  • Studio 60
  • Charlie Wilson's War
  • The Social Network
  • and for some reason, Tom Hanks' 1993 Oscar speech.

Aaron Sorkin's new show The Newsroom debuted Sunday night to mostly poor reviews, but no matter -- here's the most predictably Sorkin-esque scene, in which Jeff Daniels argues against American greatness.

[Not Safe For Work -- Daniels gets ALL riled up.)

Trailer #1 for Aaron Sorkin's new HBO drama Newsroom was delicious. Now that Trailer #2 has been released, June 24 can't get here soon enough. With a cantankerous Jeff Daniels in mid-career meltdown and Sam Waterston in a wrangling role eerily similar to his long-running stint on Law & Order, this has all the makings of small-screen resurrection for Sorkin.

The Newsroom, Aaron Sorkin's new HBO creation that goes behind the scenes of a cable TV newsroom, is the writer's first small-screen effort since Studio 60 famously derailed following a promising pilot episode. Here's hoping he can sustain his recent wave of success (The Social Network, Moneyball), because Sorkin writing for HBO just reeks of awesome.
