Acting for Writers. An older, more thespian version of Natalie from Sports Night plays an acting teacher, giving a typical acting-teacher speech in a dark theater. Adriana and Christopher show up late; Christopher is sheepish, blames the tunnel, and Thespian Natalie scolds. Traffic is always such a problem on this show. What am I saying? It's Jersey, it's New York...anyway. Geeky classmate Mitch introduces himself, says he was born and raised in Hartsdale, but please don't hold that against him! Take his wife, please! I laugh and laugh. Well, not with him, but at him. He looks like 7th Heaven Christian Dad's evil twin -- if he had an evil twin, which we all do, you know. Mitch uses that newfangled Hollywood lingo, telling them he wrote a few "specs," but that he currently works at Chick-Brauer Porsche/Audi. Christopher's turn -- or rather, Chris Maccavidi. Good, Chris. No one will find out you're connected with that brilliant alias. He tells the class he wants to write for the movies, "GoodFellas, shit like that." Apparently this class is a present from Adriana for his birthday. Christopher explains he was having problems with his screenplay, so he bought the book How to Write a Movie in 21 Days, but that was a year ago now. Hee hee -- take that act on the road, Mr. Maccavidi. Oh, he's cute, I can't pick on him too much. A unibrow, but still cute. Thespian Natalie spouts some theater-teachery wisdom, but I tune her out because she's got a pashmina wrapped around her.
