‘The Newsroom’ isn’t Returning...But It Should Be!

Olivia Munn has apparently spoken to Aaron Sorkin about a return to the small screen for ‘The Newsroom’. Munn, who played finance expert (putting it lightly) Sloan Sabbith on the show recently told Entertainment Tonight:

Molly's Game | Average Guy Movie Review

Much like 2010's The Social Network, Molly's Game takes us into a Sorkin-esque dramatisation of history. After a fall robs her of her goal of skiing in the Olympics, Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain) goes in search of her new self, one that doesn't involve skis.
