becoming obsessed with charlie kaufman

I just found a cool Charlie Kaufman interview. Here’s a clip in which he talks about getting his start by writing for sitcoms.

It’s brutal, and it’s not my personality, and I survived it. It’s very competitive, and you’re writing on really hard deadlines. And it was hard after a while. Before I got my first job, which was on “Get A Life” — I mean, immediately before that — I was answering telephones in an art museum in Minnesota. I remember when I went on the lot at “Get A Life,” I had a parking spot with my name on it, you know? [Laughs] It was wild. And I was driving this beat-up 1980 Jetta, which I’d driven from Minnesota, that had no air-conditioning. And it was all rusted out, because all cars from Minnesota are.

I had no idea that he wrote for “Get A Life.” How cool is that? He also wrote the screenplay for the upcoming film “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” which I’ve mentioned here before.
