Favorites Sean Penn

Young Feel

I have a graduate degree from Penn State. I studied at Penn State under a noted Hemingway scholar, Philip Young.

But the scenes don't feel pulpy.

Mentor Named

One of the advantages of having gone to Penn State was having had a scholar for a mentor - Philip Young. Also, a professional writer named Philip Klass taught there.

- Jolene Blalock

Executive Enjoying

Agent Sean Penn

I heard about the project over a year before we began. My American agent said, 'Oh, you might want to read 'In Cold Blood' because they're talking about you for Capote, but the script's with Johnny Depp and Sean Penn at the moment.' So, these things take their time to dribble down the food chain.
