Yesterday evening King of The West Wing Aaron Sorkin came to Toronto to show his directorial debut, Molly’s Game. Centering around the strange tale of a notorious poker game and its titular owner, Molly’s Game is the first time Sorkin has taken on both writing and directing duties.

Sorkin has assembled quite a cast for the film; it stars Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Chris O’Dowd and many fine character actors.

We had the pleasure of talking Aaron Sorkin and his cast in Toronto last night. Paul Heath of TheHollywoodNews was asking the questions, Editor Dave Sztypuljak was the man behind the camera.

The film is released on the 22nd of November in the US, and Boxing Day in the UK, here’s how Paul and Dave got on.
