Trivia:

Kaufman has a reputation for avoiding interviews with the media, but this is a fallacy, as demonstrated by the scores of interviews you can find online. He has rarely been interviewed on TV; he was interviewed by Charlie Rose at the end of March 2004, and by Stephen Colbert in December of 2008. See more »

Trademark:

Scripts usually feature reluctant protagonists who start out in the story as downtrodden or self-doubtful, frustrated with life or love or their professions. See more »
