creator Aaron Sorkin
is taking some sassy potshots at departing cast member Rob Lowe
. In the current issue of Newsweek
, Sorkin jokes that there's a lot of pressure writing for an actor of Lowe's caliber. "You're looking at the spectre of [past Lowe
films] Atomic Train
and Oxford Blues
and St. Elmo's Fire
," he says, "and you try to live up to those standards, and sometimes you can't." Ouch!
