'Off the Cuff' Podcast: Thomas Sadoski Says He 'Overspoke' About 'The Newsroom'

Brian Hedenberg

The thespian-turned-Sorkin-star tells #pretapodcasts about leaving the controversial show behind and the two new films he has out this month

"I've described it in the past as being 'devastating," Thomas Sadoski tell us about The Newsroom ending its run after three seasons on HBO. "I think maybe I overspoke."

Sadoski does seem rather at peace about the conclusion of Aaron Sorkin's divisive political news melodrama that made him a household name after years spent treading the boards on Broadway. "We were satisfied that we had run our course," he says, choosing to look ahead and wonder, "What is the world gonna do with me?"

So far he seems to be doing just fine, with two new films out this month including Liz Tuccillo's indie rom-com Take Care and Wild, the Reese Witherspoon starrer that has been racking up end-of-year award nominations. 2015 will see him back on Broadway starring in the new Neil LaBute play The Way We Get By with Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany.

Sadoski tells us how moving from New Haven, Connecticut to College Station, Texas as a kid was a "huge, huge culture shock," why he was kicked out of his high school theater department for being "an asshole," and the beauty of making movies with women as opposed to "a bunch of bro's hanging out."

"That f--k-it point is actually a very important part of any artist's development," he notes.

It's certainly worked for him so far.
