Sometimes if I’m in production it will change.  But if I’m just in a writing phase (which is my favorite to be honest with you because I love my schedule as a writer) I wake up, I go somewhere, have breakfast and usually I can go somewhere and write and then I’ll open my computer…so now it’s around 10:30…(Watch the video on Youtube here).

From writer/director Danny Strong:


The world of J.D. Salinger is brought vividly to life in this portrait of one of the most renowned, controversial, and enigmatic authors of our time. In mid-20th century New York, a young salinger (Nicholas Hoult) struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with a famed socialite (Zoey Deutch) and leaves for the frontlines of World War II. Publishing his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, brings him overnight fame and notoriety, leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life. Co-starring Kevin Spacey and Sarah Paulson.
