The word was out and I got a call from Marty Bregman's assistant. Al, now famous as Michael Corleone, Serpico, and many other roles wanted to produce and was looking for someone to develop scripts, and more or less take care of his office. Would I be interested? Why not?
Neither the NYPD nor Jamaica Hospital committed a crime when they forcibly took whistleblower cop Adrian Schoolcraft from his home and held him in the hospital's psych ward for three days against his will.
Ultimately, it's tough to call just who is the finer actor, or bigger star. Personally, I give the edge to De Niro.
