Sam Waterston Discusses His Comedic Work on THE NEWSROOM in Exclusive Bonus Feature from The Complete First Season DVD/Blu-ray

     June 10, 2013


Creator Aaron Sorkin’s HBO drama series The Newsroom returns for its second season next month, but the first season of the cable news-set show hits stores on Blu-ray and DVD soon, and we here at Collider are happy to share an exclusive clip from one of the bonus features included on the set.  In this clip from the bonus feature called “The Rundown,” Sorkin, Jeff Daniels, and Sam Waterston discuss Waterson’s wonderfully charming comedic performance as Charlie Skinner.  In the clip, Waterston admits that he never knows when Sorkin is writing Skinner drunk and when he’s writing him sober, so he has to decide just how loose to play Skinner in any given scene.

Hit the jump to watch the clip.  The Newsroom: The Complete First Season will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 11th, and the set also includes the full “The Rundown” roundtable interview feature, a behind-the-scenes look at the show’s sets, deleted scenes, audio commentaries, interviews with Sorkin about each episode, and more.  Season two of The Newsroom premieres on HBO July 14th.
