hideous men

John Krasinski, the dreamy guy, Jim from the American version of The Office, aired his directorial debut this week at Sundance and it has gotten a lot of press.  From what I understand, while John was attending Brown University, he was involved in a one-run play that was a narrative of author David Foster Wallace, Brief Interviews With Hideous Men.  The book was so inspiring, even as a narrative of short stories, that he took to adapting it to a screenplay.  JK was even fortunate enough to get David’s personal blessing to proceed with the project.  More info through the link.  And at the link there’s even a quick snippet of the film for those of us who couldn’t make it to Sundance this year ;).

I have wanted to read some material from DFW, so maybe this will be my jumping off point.
