Editor's note: THE SOCIAL NEWORK hits Blu-ray/DVD today. This interview was originally posted f on October 1, 2010 for the theatrical release.

This incredibly talented writer cut his teeth writing the screenplay for THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT, and television shows Sports Night and The West Wing. It comes as no surprise that his latest endeavor - director David Fincher's THE SOCIAL NETWORK - follows suit as being pain-stakingly truthful, raw, and engaging. Mr. Sorkin wrote the script from three different perspectives, weaving each story line intricately with the others and ultimately leaving the viewer to decide which version he or she holds to be the ultimate truth.

I was very lucky to have a few minutes to talk with him about his craft. Take a look at the interview after the break and bask in his glow!
