  • J. Michael Straczynski: HollywoodÆs Overnight Success Story?

    Meet J. Michael Straczynski. 54-years-old. Veteran writer of everything from ôBabylon 5ö to the that ôHe-Manö cartoon in the 80s (I know, I got excited when I saw that on his resume too.) And overnight success story?...

    For Straczynski, suddenly one of the hottest screenwriters in Hollywood (heÆs writing films for Paul Greengrass and Marc Forster among others), itÆs done nothing less than change the course of his career. ôThis has transformed my life. In everyoneÆs life there is an æit.Æ You get married. You get divorced. You lose a kid. ThereÆs a life before it and a life after it. This was æitÆ for me.

    Don't forget most "overnight success" stories usually take 20 years hard work. jms has certainly put in his dues.
    What a wonderful world you live in. -
    Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

      yeah. i think we really can't call it overnight success.
      A cynic is a person who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

        When I saw the MTV article I laughed to myself and thought that it 38 Joe years to achieve overnight success. I should have included smileys to indicate the irony of the MTV article, but I thought it was self evident.
