Today's guest contestant on the 'Not My Job' segment of the NPR game quiz show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is Tracy Letts, of the Steppenwolf Theater company in Chicago, both an actor (this year alone he was in two films nominated for Best Picture, as Henry Ford II in Ford v. Ferrari and the book publisher in Little Women) and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright (August: Osage County). He also wrote the play Superior Donuts that the CBS sitcom was based on. Not shockingly, his conversation with host Peter Sagal covers a lot of ground and is fun and very interesting.
