If you have heeded my advice then you may recognize Mr. Marber from The Day Today with Christopher Morris and Paul and Pauline Calf's Video Diaries with Steve Coogan. He was once a phenomenal sketch comedian who grew to be one of Hollywood's most revered new screenwriters.
He garnered his first Oscar nomination for his screenplay Closer, based on his own play and this year he's nominated again for Notes on a Scandal. He is one of the few people I will be cheering for, even if I haven't seen the movie yet.
Now if he can get back to his roots and write one of Hollywood's rarest creations (a smart, well written comedy), we'd all have something to cheer about.
