Dan Futterman is wonderful, be it acting or writing he does amazing work.
I had the opportunity to watch him work while he was filming the movie "Enough" and he was focused and took his job not himself seriously, . He took time for his fans and made no "star" demands.
It was very exciting hearing he has been nominated for an Oscar for writing. And i'm keeping my fingers crossed. But I must admit I miss seeing him in my living room every week.
