Fun on Twitter with Thomas Sadoski and Lin-Manuel Miranda

This morning, these two things happened.

First, Thomas Sadoski (who plays Don on The Newsroom) let his Italian friends know that The Newsroom will premiere on Italian TV on October 17, and air every Thursday, at 11pm. Then he apologized for his Italian skills.

Later, Lin-Manuel Miranda (a Tony winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist for In the Heights) reviewed the new doc, Broadway Idiot, which chronicles Billie Joe Armstrong's journey from punk rocker to a rocking Broadway star, with American Idiot. (For the full effect, it's important to note that Miranda worked with the genius Tom Kitt (who won the Pulitzer and a Tony for Next to Normal) on Bring It On.) Miranda speaks the truth. (Also, learn about Broadway Idiot.)

It was a fun morning.
