  • Sold the film rights to A Few Good Men before the play even premiered. The plot was based on a real-life incident related to Sorkin by his sister Deborah, a Navy JAG lawyer. Did uncredited work rewriting the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning Holocaust drama Schindler's List. Turned in a 385-page first-draft screenplay for 1995's The American President. Unused material from that script was later adapted for the TV series The West Wing. Received the Humanitas Prize for the 1999 West Wing episode "In Excelsis Deo." Had cameo appearances in the films A Few Good Men (1992) and The American President (1995), as well as episodes of Sports Night and The West Wing. Originally tried to make it in show business as an actor.

QUOTES FROM Aaron Sorkin CHARACTERS

Ad Executive
Mr. Zuckerburg, I'm in charge of security for all computers on the Harvard Network and I can assure you of its sophistication. In fact it was that very level of sophistication that led us to you in less than four hours.
Mark Zuckerberg
Four hours?
Ad Executive
Yes sir.
Mark Zuckerberg
That would be impressive, except if you had known what you were looking for you would have seen it on my dorm room window.
