Josh Charles has been doing something of a victory lap following his shocking departure from The Good Wife last month. A few weeks ago he went on Olbermann as Dan Rydell, his Sports Night alter-ego. If you’re looking for more Aaron Sorkin fun, in tonight’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer he joins Schumer for “The Foodroom,” a parody of Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin, and we have the exclusive clip:
As Willa Paskin noted in her review of Season 2, “Inside Amy Schumer has become the most consistently feminist show on television, a sketch comedy series in which nearly every bit is devoted in some capacity to gender politics.” So it’s not surprising that this sketch nails Sorkin not just for his usual manufactured crises and sped-up dialogue, but for his approach to gender: Schumer knows that, in the work of Aaron Sorkin, “A woman’s life is worth nothing unless she’s making a great man greater.”
